This is a terrific song and of course, Raul Malo (The Mavericks lead singer)

and Trisha Yearwood  do it full justice.  I love the sound of The Mavericks,

they make the hair stand up on the back of my neck! …. So do spooky movies

but I don’t know what the two have in common!  (-:

 

Anyhow, about the dance  -  it’s intermediate level, but not toooo hard.

If you want to split the floor with Lovestruck Cha Cha, this might the dance for you.

See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
