THE ALL-TIME BEST SLOW-DANCE SONG --by Cheryl Pierson
But what did other people think was the best? There were so many opinions—and some were songs I had not ever heard of that became popular in the 90’s and 2000’s. By the same token, I’m sure there were plenty of songs that were popular in long years gone by that I haven’t ever heard, either.
Since many of us write historical romance, this also made me realize that songs of those old days in history might not be as meaningful to us now as they were then—maybe they even seem childish and simple, not a song that would speak of love to your partner as we would think of today.
Some of the others that people listed as the “very best slow dance song” were:
At Last by Etta James
Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton
In the Still of the Night
I Only Have Eyes for You
Only You by the Platters
These are just a few! The thread was full of songs, too many to list here. My hubby and I never had a “special” song. In our early years, we had our own band and played mainly country rock and easy listenin’ music, so I heard (and sang) a lot of different songs, but Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers was always my favorite song (and that was one we never performed, because who can top the Righteous Brothers?)
What is YOUR favorite slow dance song? (This did make me wonder what my latest character couple, Johnny and Krissy, might have wanted to slow dance to way back in 1899!)
