Just the name of that lil game (lady's choice at a dancing party) sounds soooo dusty! We still played it when I was a teen. For 15 minutes (a couple of slow songs), you were invited to chose your partner for a dance and he could not really refuse. lol So practical!
I actually wonder about the origin of the French name "quart d'heure Américain", my only guess would be something linked to WWII, linked to American soldiers, end of the war parties stuff?
Slows. There are of course hundreds of wonderful slower songs. But I refer to the ones that would push you in the arms of your man / girl.
Dancing on slow romantic songs.. That's pretty intimate, which is good when you want to get intimate!
The thing is that most of the time I did not dance with the guy I wanted! lol ... minutes then were long, endless!
Then, the songs themselves... I've never fell for "Still loving you", "say you, say me" kind of stuff! lol
And then, there are those that have all the spices in them, the exact recipe to make you react. For me it's always been the Animals House of the rising sun or (yeah, appreciate my originality here, thank you!) the Eagles's Hotel California. lol
Do you have favorite slows, hm?
Right now, I must say, this one would work to the perfection for me :
