Save The Last Dance For Me - The Drifters

For this weeks 'Saturday Night Is Music Night' I'm going back to my youth. There have been so many times I've enjoyed dancing to a song by 'The Drifters'. They are one of the longest serving bands in history. Formed in 1953 and still performing in 2019. They have collated a huge catalogue of over 50 hits, selling in excess of 214 million singles and 114 million albums across the world. Since their creation, the line up of The Drifters has undergone many changes with more than 60 different singers, including icons such as Clyde McPhatter, Ben E King, Johnny Moore and Rudy Lewis. I've chosen Save The Last Dance For Me, a great oldie, who said a bit like you Jan LOL ? Hope you enjoy it, have a great Saturday Night. All the best Jan
