You are listening to "Save The Last Dance For Me"sung by Michael Buble'. 
(See Footnote Commentary)

I have "lived" the decades of music... not just collected the tunes.
This musical history, combined with an understanding of the eras,
plus a flair for "productions," leads to my desire to create...  
 
Theme Events
 
Theme Events Are Fun! 
They provide an backdrop around which functions can be produced. 
 
Theme Event music need not be spun continuously throughout the event...
25%-40% of the elapsed-time sets the musical stage for success!
 
When decorated with  props...  plus garnished with theme food and drink,
Theme Events transform a function into a
"Must-Go-To-Happening!"

MICHAEL BUBLE'
 
Since most people hire a DJ to spin music for dancing, it seems appropriate on this EVENT THEMES page to play the most covered song in America that has "Dance" both in its title and lyrics:  "Save The Last Dance For Me"   -- which also has been a title... or alternative/working title...for movies and TV shows.
 
Of all the covers, I choose this recent rendition by Michael Buble', who has been likened to Old Blue Eyes, Frank Sinatra. Is this a blessing or curse?  Well, Harry Connick Jr. was also given this "next" title, and it may be that Michael's popularity stems from the fact that Harry Connick, though very talented and popular, did not scoop The Chairman of the Board's fame.  To point; young brides still insist on Sinatra's rendition of "The Way You Look Tonight" plus other of his music for the dinner hour.
 
In the defense of both Harry and Michael, I offer that they may never surpass Frank... not because of talent, but because of exposure.  Today, it is difficult-to-impossible to garner the popular exposure which existed during the formative years of Sinatra's career.  For example... in the first half of the '50s, radio stations played the gamut of music.  After 1955, radio stations began to specialize... rock stations came into being and separated from easy listening, etc.  Now, even rock stations have fractionated into "classical rock," "alternative rock" and so on.
 
Parallel with the segmentation of radio stations has been the DISAPPEARANCE of TV programming... including specials...  that resembles a hosted variety hour.  These were the staple of stars... plus stars having their friends as guest stars.  EXPOSURE!
 
Today we are paradoxically in a communications mode where everyone is connected to something, but not to the same thing, for we have been isolated by marketing  segmentation.
 
And so... for visitors who follow Michael, enjoy the tune.  For visitors hearing Buble' for the first time... "IT'S TIME," which aptly enough is the album title containing the cut "Save The Last Dance For Me."
