‘Slow Dancing’ Was A Pop Hit Twice And A Country Hit Once
If a song is a big hit once, well, you have a darn good record. If that same song is a hit two different times, well then, you have a song that is well on it's way to becoming a classic! But if a song is a three-times-hit...what is it then?
Well, that's what happened to the song 'Slow Dancing'.
A man named Jack Tempchin composed 'Slow Dancing' and the group he was a member of, 'The Funky Kings', had a Pop/Easy Listening big hit with the song in 1976.
But the song really came to the attention of millions and millions of people when Pop/Rock legend Johnny Rivers released it as a single in 1977. The song became a huge Top Ten smash around the world.
Then Johnny Duncan brought the song back...for a third time. Except this time it became a huge country music hit, the ninth Top 10 country hit in Johnny's country career.
A major hit song....times three and across two musical genre's. And who knows? A great classic never dies. Is 'Slow Dancing' due for another go-round at the top of the another music chart?
