As difficult as it may be for me to believe at times, Joanna actually had a rich, meaningful life before she met me. (After all, she had three kids when we met.) Though she professes not to have a lot of romantic high school memories, I remember hearing her talk about slow dancing to this song with a boy on whom she had a teenage crush. Since then, of course, she and I have also enjoyed dancing to it.

Though most people may not know it, the song actually had sad lyrics — but the instrumental version below is the one that Santo & Johnny recorded and made famous.
