Re: Remember Slow Dances?

No experience with the clubs, but I can happily report that carnaval-related dances tend to offer a number of -- pardon my french -- "les slows".

Unfortunately easter is behind us now, but there's hope for the remainder of the year: I was dragged to a village dance this weekend and, although most of the snogging was being conducted peripherally, there were also occasional opportunities to do so on the floor.

I like the term "remainders", although in my teens my social circle and I referred to them as "Tentertwo's", because they were the girls you would only ask for a dance at 10 to 2 when the place was about to close

Sadly from the responses it seems I was basically a "tentertwo" myself, ah well such is life

The preferred "slow" track of the day was "I Had The Time Of My Life" from "Dirty Dancing", I was gutted when that got replaced by Frank Sinatra's "My Way". Try smooching your chosen "tentertwo" whilst the rest of the dancefloor have linked arms in a vast loop and are high-kicking to the crescendo, it's not easy ah tell thee...
Where we were brought (dragged) up, it was mainly for a financial reason that you waited until near the end before making your move. Too early, and you had to buy drinks for her and her mates (with no guarentee of success).
In the nightclubs, there was a pretty slim chance that you were going to meet someone for a long term relationship - a bit like weekly "pass the parcel" in Nelson and Burnley . Good fun though!

Re: Remember Slow Dances?

You're once, twice, three times a lady and I loooooove you. A guaranteed floor filler at TOTS in Southend. The throngs of sweaty east enders swaying around the dance floor. Memories are made of this thread.
When we are together, the mood that's cherished, with every beat of myyyyyy heart.

Re: Remember Slow Dances?

If you have satellite, check out Magic , Smooth, or Heart FM. Its programming is tailor-made for you. They play that, "Easy", "Let's Get It On", "Careless Whisper", "It Started with a Kiss" over and over and over...

This brings back so many memories, thanks for the posts guys....

On a similar note, but far more childish. Did anyone participate in "pull a pig" at Uni? It normally involved a large pot of cash and lots of drinking. I obviously am far too cultured for that sort of thing.

The real way to win boys and girls is not to leave it until 10 too 2!
Used to be called "Grab a grot" when I was in the forces and was practised every Thursday night (Ladies night) in Goldfingers (I think that was the name) in Swindon,
The brighter participants would use it as a way of reducing competition, while all your mates where chasing the grots you had a clear field for the higher quality ladies

Re: Remember Slow Dances?

ahhh, I am sure the swissies on the forum (of my generation) , remember the skicamps/summercamps where Barclay James Harvests Hymn and Poor Mans Moody Blues were THE slow hits and Alan Parsons Lucifer the music to dance like dervishes to

The bad thing was if you were always the one who was never picked for a slow dance then u clearly knew where u stood......

Slow Dances at the end of the night in a club. Ahhh memories! Do they have them these days?

I heard 10cc's "I'm Not In Love" today, which brought it all back to me. Surely that has to be one of the best smoochie songs ever. But the one that always sticks in my mind is Sad Cafe's "Every Day" as that was the song I had my first great smooch to, the time when I got the girl I'd had my eye on. Never got very far in relationship terms, but the moment is a treasured memory forever

So come on...what's your favourite smoochie song?

I'll get the venerable DJ at the Cana Bar to stick on the best one at tomorrow night's (wednesday's) drink
THE song for me was - "Put your head on my shoulder". I have such fond memories of smooching away aged 10 at our local "Red Hut" disco (and it literally was a red hut!), then running a mile when the song finished out of pure shyness! How things change....

Re: Remember Slow Dances?

This reminds me of a school disco. I had managed to get there under false pretences. I told my parents that I was going to a school friends Birthday Party.

Staying for the slow dances 'Whiter Shade of Pale' and 'Massachusetts', I ended up missing the last bus home. Found wandering around the town by the local Police, I was given a lift home and to some explaining to my parents

Re: Remember Slow Dances?



Too funny !!! I've missed quite a few tram's home too, just because I wanted to have one more dance with that dude, and the cabs always cost me a fortune !!! Fortunately I had no explanation to give to anyone !!!

As I was only 12 at the time, I suppose it was reasonable that my parents were concerned that I was back late. The first that they would have seen was the Police Car pulling up outside the house.
