Save the Last Dance

Download with Lead Several years ago, I found out who Michael Buble was. Karen and I were doing a small wedding on the beach in Gulf Shores and the bride had a special request for the first dance (I hate playing weddings). The song was “Save the Last Dance for Me”. I thought, “Great! The old Drifters tune – I know that.” Turned out I was wrong. We trotted out a Drifters version and she was horrified. “That’s the right song,” she said, “but it isn’t”. Excuse me? She wanted it the way some cat named Michael Buble did it. Who? We had to scramble around but eventually came up with this arrangement, and it’s how we still do it. Much more interesting than the original. I really have to keep up…. but I’m stuck in the sixties.
