"Hello Dolly" & "Cabaret" seemed de riguer at the jewish "affairs" I was schlepped along to.

p.s. -- for lowdown on the Jewish-Latin Music connection of the 50s & early 60s check out a great blog called "mamboniks"

Does the Bunny Hop or Ballin' the Jack count? Not romantic perhaps but got people on the dance floor.

Royce Campbell

More 60's wedding songs

La Bamba
Spanish Eyes
Wipe Out

David Larsson

Twist and Shout. Also, if you're in Minnesota, I don't care what decade, and I don't care what gig you're playing, whether it's the Federal judges' banquet or a junior hockey banquet at a VFW hall, you'd better show up with 30 minutes of polkas or not show up at all.

Lou Malerba

"Tears of a Clown"

"Walking the Dog"
