    Reminds me of my early-teen parties. Although there was far less lighting, Scorpions - Wind of change playing, and a lot more grabbing...

    Brings back a memory of slow dancing with my best friend`s brother to "How Deep is Your Love" by the Bee Gees. The first time I had danced with a boy. He farted, people started laughing and I ran out of the room mortified. Way to stunt a high school girl! Never went to a school dance after that.

    Heres Peaches and Rich. "i think we all know the answer to this one". Peaches say she look for Rich. Rich looks for Peaches to be by his side

    What the he ll did he mean by that? theres gotta be a hidden meaning to it.

    they don`t slow dance today, they have mock sex on the dance floor. Like everything else this current generation has failed to learn or understand a damn thing and pretty much ruins everything they touch.

    What`s different compared to now? I mean, I don`t think young people really slow dance now anyways, it`s all grinding against each other`s privates, but when they do "slow dance" it pretty much looks like that...
