                                    Music that makes you wanna slow dance...    (a note from Val)      
 

 

It's the season for slow dancing. Prom. Weddings. Graduation Dance.  You know, the usual.


But when was the last time you slow danced in your house?  No, I'm serious. I bet I can make you want to.  Every once in awhile I run across a song that stops me in my tracks.  Like a trance, the song gets into my blood and I have to get up and dance.  

Singer/songwriter Pieta Brown says it best in her song line, "Just like a tattoo, a pretty song will mark you when its blood mixes in..."    

I have some examples below.  If these don't make you want to get up and sway, then you're cheating and you're still multi-tasking.  JUST LISTEN.
 

Yours,
