I remember what I wore because it was New Year's Eve and my boyfriend/would be ex-husband, had a party at his parents house, down in the finished basement. This was back in the day of HiFi's and 33 & 1/3 albums. If the stereo was your parents, you could stack 3 or 4 records to drop, but if it was the "sound system" of a music connoisseur, they owned a "turn table" and only one could be played at a time. We were at the parents so the record player was loaded. The thing with that CCR album was the long version of Heard It Through The Grapevine was 11 minutes long. That's a long time to be dancing to one song. Frankly, I am reminded more of the dress more than who I was dancing with. hmmmm. Guess I really liked this dress and the silver shoes. ( Remember my mentioning how my mother cut out the "bad parts"?
Having said all of that, when that song comes on an Oldies station, what pops into my mind, first thing?
They still make me smile.
