This is one of my all time favourite songs… and this is a nice version by Damien Leith….(although Roy will always sing the  version I hear in my head). 

The McClymonts are an incredible Aussie group (real sisters too) and from my

perspective anyhow, I think they have ‘made’ this song sound great…

 

Hope you enjoy the dance as well as the song.

  See you on the floor sometime....  Jan
