Rolling Stone magazine has issued the top 25 greatest slow dance songs ever.
I think they botched it, but then what do I know. I’m older than dirt (but I look snazzy in a hat.) You do a trade-off when you get older.
No. 1. is “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith.
Ginger will be glad to know that the Bee Gees made #17 with “How Deep Is You Love.” Ahh, memories of junior high and “Saturday Night Fever” when all the girls swooned over an unintelligible John Travolta. Hell, I loved that movie too.
I don’t know about this, but I do know that if I ever hear the song “Lady in Red” by Chris de Burgh I will truly become violent.
I don’t know. I think some of the best dance songs are John Coltrane or Charley Parker, when you have someone’s hand stuck in your hair, tugging just a little bit and swaying ever so slightly to the music. Lips slightly apart, waiting for a lovely soft kiss.
But then again, I haven’t been to prom in a very, very long time. And I guess listening to a song from the movie “Armageddon” just throws 16 year-olds into a tizzy.
