Every one knows I'm oldern' dirt and twice as dusty, so I love songs from the 50's, 60's and 70's. All through the 70's and 80's I was a Go-Go Dancer in the night clubs, so dancing was one of my all-time favorite jobs. One of my favorites is "Stay" by Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs. If this song doesn't get your toes a tappin' and up out of a chair, well, I don't know what to tell you.

Oh dang @DianneN . It was a pretty safe job. Bouncers that would throw anybody out who tried to touch you and they walked you to your car. PLUS at that time, it paid $1,000 per week (no taxes). I met a lot of movie stars at that time too; so that was cool. Although a Las Vegas mobster, I didn't like.

I once had a neighbor who was a go go dancer also and made her own costumes. A few of us neighbors went to see her preform her dance with her snake, yes she had a snake. We did have a good time and it was not at all what I exepected.

I knew one dancer that had a snake too @Marcyaz ; creeped me out since I don't like snakes. I had about 10 outfits. Beads, sequins, fringe; you name it. A lady that made the outfits used to come into the club once a month to sell them. They weren't cheap either. I know a lot of people thought those places were sleezy but any I worked in was very nice and we had a packed house every night.

That is a good song. But the version I remember more is the one that Jackson Brown made in the 70's.

There have been a lot of versions since Maurice did it in 1960 @inertia4 . A lot of them are good ones.

@nanette64 There have been many songs that have been remade by artists through the years.

I'm particularly fond of Rave On by Buddy Holly.
Well, the little things you say and do make me want to be with you. Rave on, it's a crazy feeling and I know it's got me reelin', When you say I love you Rav...

I enjoy the songs in the 60's and 70's. It was vintage rock and roll.
