Save the Last Dance for Me

The Harry Connick Jr. version of "Save the Last Dance for Me" has pretty much ruled my last few days. That, plus a pair of tracks off Imogen Heap's new album, Ellipse: "Aha!" and "2-1". I'm not sure what either of those two mean yet, but they make the hairs stand up on my arms. Excellent stuff.

Too bad "Save the Last Dance for Me" was written in 1960. It's a little outside of my 1940s kick, but it gives me smooth, sweet, romantic vibes. Yay Harry!

You can dance
Every dance with the guy who gives you the eye--let him hold you tight.
You can smile
Every smile for the man who held your hand 'neath the pale moonlight.
But don't forget who's takin' you home
And in whose arms you're gonna be.
So darlin' save the last dance for me.

Well you can know
That the music's fine like sparklin' wine--
Go and have your fun.
Laugh and sing,
But while we're apart, don't you give your heart to anyone.
So don't forget who's takin' you home
And in whose arms you're gonna be.
Oh, darlin', save the last dance for me.

Baby don't you know I love you so?
Can't you feel it when we touch?
I will never never let you go.
I love you oh so much.

Well you can dance,
You can carry on till the night is gone
And it's time to go.
If he asks
If you're all alone, can he take you home--
You must tell him no.
Cause don't forget who's takin' you home
And in whose arms you're gonna be.
So darlin', save the last dance for me.
