        You have the best knack of picking those songs that were popular but I had forgotten….I love them.

  2. One of the sexiest songs going. I’ll never forget one of my voice students was intent on perfecting this song and we worked on it after every lesson. He sang it like he was performing at the Blue Note, making love to the microphone. The only (and biggest) problem was the guy was tone deaf and couldn’t sing a note in key. I tried to dissuade him from taking singing lessons in the first place but he refused. This was his big dream and he made some progress but I had to bite the inside of my cheek to keep from laughing every time he sang this song. I felt bad taking his money for voice lessons so I only charged him half the price. Poor guy; I wonder what he’s doing now?

    1. Funny: Mary and I saw one of our favorite episodes of The Andy Griffith Show last night, the one where Barney (who’s a God-awful singer) joins the town choir. Andy makes the comment that Barney is just off-key enough to really get on his nerves. Kind of like your student.

      In our case, it was dancing lessons. A lady at church, a friend of ours, was giving dance lessons and encouraged us to join. After about two lessons, she gave us our money back. Mary was fine, I was like an elephant with a broken leg…
