Hollywood Hearts - Sway

Everybody knows I'm a fan of old Hollywood, so I love Turner Classic Movies on television.  I was walking through the house one evening and heard a guest speaker on that channel. I think she was a college English teacher. When the host asked her how many of her students were interested in old movies, she said none.  Yes, I am realistic about such things.  The younger generations want to look forward and don't care about what used to be. Still, I remain ever hopeful and will never give up in sharing the joys of music and movies from times past.

Today's offering is a modern day version of Sway, a mambo written in  1953 featuring Mathew Morrison of the TV show Glee. Click on link to enjoy. http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=mathew%20morrison%20sway&m=1Dean Martin made this a hit in the same decade, as well.

Also, click here to see a composite from Rita Hayworth films, as she dances to Sway. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5FtCIoJATM

But wait, here is yet another modern version from Dancing with the Stars featuring Nicole Scherzinger and the Pussycat Dolls. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bnW3ALEccY

Come on and Sway with me.
