  • "Dancing in the Street" (em português: Dançando na Rua) foi um single gravado pelo grupo Martha and the Vandellas, lançada em 1964. Produzida por William "Mickey" Stevenson e composta por Stevenson e Marvin Gaye, a canção trouxe o conceito de se ter um bom tempo na cidade em que ouvinte vive. A ideia para a dança foi de Stevenson, quando via as pessoas nas ruas de Detroit se refrescando no verão em água de hidrantes abertos. Eles pareciam estar dançando na água. A canção foi idealizada por Stevenson, que mostrou um rascunho da letra. Quando Gaye leu a letra original, no entanto, disse que a música soava mais dançante. Gaye e Stevenson compuseram o single juntos. (pt)
