The above Classic Country hit 'Slow Dancing' by Johnny Duncan was a Top Ten hit for the Texas born Duncan in 1979.  It was one of many huge Country hit's Johnny had.

 

 

Now, if a song is a big hit once, well, you have a darn good record.  If that same song is a hit two different times, well then, you have a song that is well on it's way to becoming a classic!  But if a song is a three-times-hit...what is it then?

Well, that's what happened to the song 'Slow Dancing'.

A man named Jack Tempchin composed 'Slow Dancing' and the group he was a member of, 'The Funky Kings', had a Pop/Easy Listening big hit with the song in 1976.

But the song really came to the attention of millions and millions of people when Pop/Rock legend Johnny Rivers released it as a single in 1977.  The song became a huge Top Ten smash around the world.

 

 

Then, of course, Johnny Duncan brought the song back...for a third time...this time to the Country chart in 1979.

A major hit song....times three.  And who knows?  A great classic never dies.  Is 'Slow Dancing' due for another go-round at the top of the charts?
