This is an easy little dance to a lovely old smooth song by Jim Reeves.

It will have great appeal for some people and others will no doubt hate it.

I guess that’s the case with most dances, and in fact, with most things in life….

What’s the old saying  -  “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”.


I personally love the old songs, but I guess I love most music. It’s just the screechers

and heavy opera that make me pull my hair out…… so I suppose you could say

that those two forms of music are ‘trash’ to me.  Whatz YOURS?


Enough chat for now.  If you like this music I hope you enjoy the dance.

If you hate this music then just throw the dance in the piffle bin!

We’ve got a big piffle bin at our place!


See you on the floor sometime……...Jan
