Spanish Steps also taken in by lover on journey (8)


I believe the answer is:


'spanish steps' is the definition.
(Spanish dance steps)

'also taken in by lover on journey' is the wordplay.
'also' becomes 'and' (both can mean in addition).
'taken in by' indicates putting letters inside.
'lover' becomes 'fan' (synonyms).
'on journey' becomes 'go' (I've seen this in other clues).
'and' put within 'fan' is 'fandan'.

(Other definitions for fandango that I've seen before include "Old Spanish dance, with castanets" , "Dance performed with castanets" , "Spanish dance -- a dong fan (anag)" , "Spanish 2 Down" , "Old Spanish dance in triple time" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
