I didn’t see Dirty Dancing until I was in college and by then I think I was too old to “get it”, but I was a huge fan of this soundtrack long before I knew anything about not putting Baby in the corner. Also, this song was apparently a number one hit in 1957, but only achieved B-side status in 1987.

We went back to the land of karaoke for this one. The idea was to keep it simple, and have fun! I promise you, we will have some home spun, made-from-scratch zingers coming up in the final quarter of our song-a-week experiment. And we have some interesting ideas for our “make-up songs” (the 9 or 10 songs that we’ve gotten behind on over the course of the year.) Also, two interactive projects including YOU, coming right up!

    I am obsessed with Kristorm-o-rama! I don’t know if you guys entertain suggestions but I have many. Here’s a tease: Tom Waits and Bette Midler- Never Talk To Strangers. Anything by Neko Case, especially off of Blacklisted.
    okay, I will stop there.
    Norm, I work with Kristen at Lifespan and I am a crazy music person.

    Jordan use to dance to this movie everyday, all day. She lost 3 pounds in one week and she was only three years old. Wake me up with… “Mommy can I watch Dirty Dancing?”

    Love it! However, I need to go on FB more often, I have to listen to several at a time. Did you do NEW YORK, NEW YORK?

    HA!!!!!!!! love it! I’m shocked that this song was only a b-side. It was definitely a top 10 for me! I loved this soundtrack so hard.

    Seriously, y’all sound great on this one. K- I especially love the growl.
