Thank you June for stopping by. Glad to know Twistin’ the Night Away inspired your day. Cheers to your rest of the week, and the best coffee or tea for your reflective moments!💞🎼
This always makes me feel like dancing the night away!
Hahaha! During those times the dancing was exercise. Today dancing class for more difficult and conforming twists. I am sure I will always have mine together. XOXO
My parents had this album when I was a kid. So many great songs!
A great album and song for sure. Seems like only yesterday that we were listening to Cooke’s songs and other pop talent music. Thank you for your feedback! 💗🎼
