Gees, that Connie Francis can mix it with the best of them, even after all these years!

This song was new to me and I do thank Sandy for sharing it with me, it’s lovely.

She said it makes her goosey—and I understand exactly what she means.. Me too!

Hope this easy little dance appeals to you.  The harder dance to this song is nice too and it is called Spanish Nights if you would like to have a look at it.

 

See you on the floor sometime.... Maybe in Spain?
