Everyone i know loves this song......
It was first recorded by Ben E King & The Drifters in 1960. This version went to number one in the US.
Its a pretty simple song that tells a story of a lover telling his companion to have fun throughout the evening but to make sure she leaves one last dance for him. The song was written by Doc Pomus and some other guy. Now it is speculated that this song is intensely personal to Doc Pomus. He had polio and used crutches and his wife was a very vivacious broadway actress and dancer.
This song has been recorded by a number of artists including Ike & Tina Turner, EmmyLou Harris, The Beatles, Harry Nilsson etc.
The 2 cover versions i have included are by Michael Buble and Dolly Parton.
Michael Buble recorded his version in 2006 and it did relatively well on the charts and introduced a lot of young people to this song.
Dolly Parton recorded her version in 1984 and it entered the top 10 on the US country charts.
So which version do you prefer?
