"They Dance Alone (Gueca Solo)" is a protest song composed by English musician Sting and published first on the 1987 album ...Nothing Like the Sun. The song is a metaphor referring to mourning Chilean women (arpilleristas) who dancing the Cueca, the national dance of Chile, alone with photographs of their disappeared loved ones in their hands. Sting explained his song as a symbolic gesture of protest against the Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet whose regime killed thousands of people between 1973 and 1990. This song was written in an English version (with some spoken Spanish words) and a Spanish version titled Ellas Danzan Solas which was released on the EP Nada como el sol.
