Is that that song that was re-discovered on "Family Ties"? Because I seem to remember it sucking. I mean, REALLY SUCKING.

Etta James would like a posthumous word

Maybe you should listen to the lyrics of the song.


Not a happy one

How is a song about someone breaking up with you the best slow dance song? Slow dance with yourself?

I never really listened to the lyrics before until you Farkers pointed out it is a breakup song. My Nice Guy Eddie moment. That song is as sad as "Seasons in the Sun". Why the fark would you sing such depressing songs?

And no, I'm to ignorant to know how to link.

Mmmmmm-yeah... Not a big fan of that song at all.

Uhh...

Lady in Red
Faithfully
Open Arms.
Wonderful Tonight
Unchained Melody.
Wind Beneath my Wings
In Your Eyes

Jeez, Subby, it's a great song but not for that reason.

submitter is on drugs.

Clearly this is the best slow dance song ever.

/Played during one of our first dates, when future wife was wearing red

Heh.... I see you covered this in your first item while I was looking for a good video of it.

Chris De Burgh thinks subby sucks.

I used to teach the waltz to that song...because it's such a slow boring waltz.
 
2012-05-28 01:17:37 PM  
I first became aware of Billy Vera from seeing The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (you know, back in the days when you went to theaters to see movies)

How about a (semi-)slow dance song with some personality? New Coat of Paint

I used to go see Billy and the Beaters at the Troubadour in L.A. on Monday nights at midnight. They had a house gig there and each week there would always be some session guys sitting in. Skunk Baxter once came off stage and sat next to me while still playing and shared a joint with me.

Great Song:

This song always gives me the shakes.

Bob Seger's "We've Got Tonight" is better.

To support my position, I note that back in high school and junior high, the air was pungent with the sweet, sweet stink of moist young vag by the time this song concluded at a school dance. Dance with a girl to that one and, in the then-future words of Tone Loc, "What do you know, she was good to go, without a word to say."
 
2012-05-28 03:49:54 PM  
Who is Subby slow-dancing with? His sister, as she tries to console him?

That was our wedding song.
 
2012-05-28 05:11:15 PM  
Sorry, but I gotta go with Chris De Burgh on this one. Lady In Red is a classic.

Wonderful Tonight is in the same league as "Every Breath You Take" for being a sweet sounding, misunderstood song.

I mean, Wonderful Tonight is basically a "biatch, hurry your ass up! You look fine. I'm sick of your shiat!" song.

Sleepwalk is the best slow dance song ever.
Anyone who disagrees is wrong.

When my fiancee broke up with me, this was the first song I heard when I got in my car. That was 33 years ago and I still hate this song.

Geesh. If there was ever a radio station that endorsed suicide, this would be on their playlist.

Terrible, Broken Hearted, Painful Radio. Here on WFRK.
After the break, It's Phil Collins with "Against All Odds", Followed by Richard Marx with "Right Here Waiting", Brought to you by sominex. Go ahead, you know you want to.

What was sad and stupid is that Alex and his girfriend had that as "their song".

And, they did break up.

Yeah, that's what I thought, too. Never saw him back in the day, didn't know until recently he was like Chris Elliott with a band.

This is better.

/Partially because it doesn't make me think of bummed out Latino characters screaming their late friend's name.

When I'm all alone, I like to slow dance to this.

Purple Rain, biatches. Nine minutes long, critical information for a quick-thinking seventh-grade boy at the junior high dance.

Subby's statement is un...... TRUE

If you are Canadian of a certain age, this was the "go to" song.
