Thanks for posting this one. I think it is a cover of a generation earlier version, from the 20s. Anyway, I remember slow dancing to this in junior high. Oh man, I wish slow dancing were 1/10 as much fun now as it was then! Only thing better was Eartha Kitt's Santa Baby, Mickey and Sylvia's Love is Strange, or maybe Les and Mary, Vaya Con Dios.

Mickey and Sylvia's "Love is Strange" came out in 1957, only one year before Connie Francis sang "Who's Sorry Now" in 1958. What great classics came out during those years.

I was just 9-10 years old in 1957-58, but knew every word of both these songs from listening to them on the radio.

The other two songs you mention apparently came out in 1953, but I knew them just as well. I'm not sure why, since I would have only been 5 when they came out. Maybe they were still popular.

They both stayed popular for years- in fact Eartha Kitt's Santa Baby became a christmas classic. "Santa Baby, a 54 convertible too, light blue, I'll wait up for you, so hurry down the chimney tonight..."

Looking around your tube, I realize that I also know may songs from my parents' youths. Their parties often featured dancing and group singing, and I know plenty of songs from the 30s through the WW2 years and after. Know the words even. I even know old radio ads and jingles from my early childhood-"Duz Does Everything". I even know who is Deanna Durbin.

One cannot but be a child of his era, and mine was too hard to really spend much time listening to these old sentimental songs- but they really are very beautiful. And if I had a woman who could get into romance I could get there with her. And no, I am not talking about sex. Don't need sentiment for that.

I'm not much of a country pop fan, and I never knew what this word featured in the song meant until I saw this video on CMT at a local Legion. This song is cute and bouncy and unashamedly irreverent. Just my style.

Men of the forum, enjoy the show.

You go girls!

This video is pure wanna-be for a Yank like me, but I bet this gal and I could pound down a few beers and laugh like h*ll.
