Great selection.

I'm currently loving Santa Baby by Sheila E. It sounds like it would be part of the sound track for the Christmas edition of Dirty Dancing.

Also, I play a "Last Waltz" at my nights and I'm loving Silver Bells by Neil Diamond - although a slip of the mouse meant I, embarrassingly, played it during the beginners Modern Jive lesson on Tuesday Embarassed

N.B. On the subject of the "Last Waltz". I started playing a waltz track at the end of the night a few years ago with no intention that people would actually dance. Initially I played a Waltz because I wanted to play some music while people were saying goodbye and changing their shoes at the end of the night - but I didn't want them to jive to it so it had to be a song that wasn't 4/4 time. What happened? Some people tried to jive to it and others started to waltz. Eventually people started asking for waltz lessons so they could join in - I had to go back to school and get lessons in teaching the waltz.

Last night we had almost everyone up and doing the waltz to Silver Bells, lovely!

Thanks, Andy. It took many hours sitting at the PC to assemble these, hopefully, non-cheesey , tracks. Smile I know there are three versions of Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) and two of Blue Christmas but, to my mind, they are different enough that they are still good in this selection. Surprisingly excellent Christmas tracks by B.B. King and I find myself strangely enjoying the Jingle Bells by Scott McCreery. You might also notice that there are quite a few Country influenced tracks which suggests that there might well be more Country tracks suitable for Jiving hitherto unexposed to the Jive world. Smile

Nothing wrong with a bit of cheese at Christmas. Especially if it's Stilton washed down with a bottle of vintage Port.
