About the Song
"Music Box Dancer" is an instrumental by Canadian musician Frank Mills that was an international hit in the late 1970s. It features a piano theme that is accompanied by other instrumentation, designed to resemble a music box. "Music Box Dancer" was written and recorded by Frank Mills in 1974, but it was not to become a single until 1978. By Christmas of that year, it was in the top ten of many pop music charts throughout Europe and Asia. Released as a single in the United States late in 1978, it reached Number 3 on Billboard magazine's Hot 100 chart in April 1979 and also reached number 3 on the Canadian Adult Contemporary charts and number 47 on the Canadian Pop charts. In 1979 through the early 1980s, "Music Box Dancer" was the theme for the CBS half hour documentary show "2 on the Town". "Music Box Dancer" has been recorded by such well-known pianists as Floyd Cramer, Roger Williams.    Download this sheet!
About the Artist
Frank Mills (born June 27, 1942), is a Canadian pianist and recording artist, best known for his solo instrumental hit "Music Box Dancer". Born in Quebec, Mills began his career as a member of The Bells, a group in which he was a member from 1970 to 1972. He performed piano for the band, whose best-known hit was "Stay Awhile" (1971). After leaving The Bells in 1972, Mills began a solo career. His first solo efforts hardly made a dent in the music charts, although his 1972 single "Love Me, Love Me, Love" reached as high as #46 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #8 on Billboard's Easy Listening chart and a cover of Ricky Nelson's "Poor Little Fool" was also successful in Canada (both songs featured Mills singing as well as playing piano). Frank released an album in 1974 that featured "Music Box Dancer", but it was not a hit initially. When Frank re-signed with Polydor Records Canada in 1978, the label released a new song as a single, with "Music Box Dancer" on the B-side. The single was sent to easy listening stations in Canada, but a copy was sent in error to CFRA-AM, a pop station in Ottawa. The program director played the A-side and couldn't.
