Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School is the fourth studio album by American singer/songwriter Warren Zevon The album was released on February 15, 1980, by Elektra Records Three singles were released from the album, one of which charted: "A Certain Girl" a cover of a song previously recorded by Ernie K-Doe and The Yardbirds reached #57 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was Zevon's second and final hit on that chart

"Play It All Night Long" is a commentary on those who listen to Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama", whom Zevon supposes only listen to the song because country life is so intolerable It is probably the only popular song ever written which contains a reference to brucellosis4

The term "dancing school" has been used as a euphemism for a brothel since the mid-17th century5
