Dirty Dancing

Here is the original Dirty Dancing number done by Patrick Swayze (sigh...) and Jennifer Grey. When I first watched this movie, I never really noticed that Jennifer Grey is not even beautiful or that she was barely passable as a virginal teenager. Patrick Swayze (sigh...) is not an all-out pretty boy either (he has a very, very nice body, but his neck is sooo thick!). Back then, all I saw was the sheer "rightness" of the two together...that they were a perfect match, the right key to the lock (haha! in more ways than one!). And during the "dirty" part of the dance (see at 2:36), their (especially Swayze's...sigh...) movements were so fluid, that their hips, when they curved toward each other, caressed and undulated...and looked so right.

  1. it never ceases to amaze me why these two never achieved A-list status. they were certified hot stars the year Dirty Dancing came out, but after that they just sort of fizzled out... a pity, really

  2. I heard that Jennifer Grey's career took a turn for the worse when she got herself a nose job---a nose job so bad she needed another to fix it. As for Patrick Swayze, I really can't figure out why---good singer, amazing dancer, excellent actor! Trifecta!

  5. Curses! I'm outside the territory and couldn't download the game! Oh, well, I'll just watch the movie again. Has it been 20 years already? ILoveUpstate, I like what you do and your site. I'm totally going to steal your idea of putting a To-Do List page, so I would always be reminded of a project gathering dust in my craft box or in my mind. Thank you for dropping by!

I'd love to hear from you, good or bad. And remember, if you can dish it, you better be able to take it!
