Another great classic that is not only one of my biggest favorites, it was the biggest hit of 1987. Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes came together to sing the theme song to the hit movie called “Dirty Dancing (1987),” starring the late Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. The song is called “I Had The Time Of My life.” You know to be honest, I don’t remember a whole lot about the movie; but I do remember Swayze’s serious dance movies. I’ve always been a Swayze fan, but I didn’t know he was such a talented dancer until I saw this movie.
I dare to say that the theme song was so huge, that sometimes I think that it was more popular than the movie. The song hit #1 and it stayed @ number 1 for a whopping 4 weeks! Zoinks!! Bill and Jennifer really had luck on their side, to be at the right place, time, and the right song. And let me tell you, I’ve heard a lot of Bill’s songs back in the day, and none of his songs appealed to me except for “I Had The Time Of My Life.” At least I can say that Jennifer had a couple other hits under her belt. My favorite song she released was in 1977 called “Right Time Of The Night,” which reached #6 on the Top 100 Chart.
