Julie London – SWAY

~ Julie London 1926-2000 ~
This classic track is from the CD "The Very Best of Julie London." It was also featured on the soundtrack for the 2005 film "My Summer of Love".

Lyrics

When marimba rhythms start to play
Dance with me, make me sway
Like the lazy ocean hugs the shore
Hold me close, sway me more

Like a flower bending in the breeze
Bend with me, sway with ease
When we dance you have a way with me
Stay with me, sway with me

Other dancers may be on the floor
Dear, but my eyes will see only you
Only you have that magic technique
When we sway I grow weak

I can hear the sound of violins
Long before it begins
Make me thrill as only you know how
Sway me smooth, sway me now

Other dancers may be on the floor
Dear, but my eyes will see only you
Only you have that magic technique
When we sway I grow weak

I can hear the sound of violins
Long before it begins
Make me thrill as only you know how
Sway me smooth, sway me now

    love it.

  17. Linear, simple singing but with a lot of a charge in it.

  18. Sexiness everywhere!

  19. Beautiful. Simply Beatiful. The Times, the weman, the music. even the movies. I did not live this era, but I admire it. I feel that it should not be lost so easily.

      Lilien Calvel 100% correct. The culture, the music, the dancing. Today’s equivalent of the things I just listed are just GOD awful. I want a woman who knows how to really dance, not just bounce her butt. It’s not sexy. Salsa is sexy, sway is beautiful AND sexy. Twerking is just trashy.

    • +Daniel Rocha-Garcia Twirking is disgusting. I don’t understand how anyone can see that as normal. I don’t think it is.
