I wrote this dance after numerous requests but quite frankly I don’t think the song is as good as the hyp leading up to it’s release. I personally like the version by Aaron Neville which is in 4/4 timing rather than in waltz timing.
However, it appears to be well liked by many line dancers, so who am I to question? So, here is the waltz you requested Valda, Mary, Marj, Judith, Bill, Roger Colleen, Sue , Barbara and Gloria. (Sorry if I missed anyone).
Hope you like it.
See you on the floor sometime…...Jan
