51 WEEKS/51 SONGS FROM THE PAST

51 Weeks: 51 Songs From The Past: Week 20: Cliff Richard & The Shadows – Summer Holiday

Thanks, Hugh, for hosting this fun challenge.

Here’s a couple of songs from the 90s. I don’t have any special memories about them, I just like them. I’ve only recently heard this first one, and the second one I heard when it first came out. They both have a Cajun flavor to the words and music, which really makes me want to dance…and I don’t dance! 🙂 Enjoy!

“Adalida”, by George Strait, was from his album, “Lead On”, and released in 1994. It was written by Mike Geiger, Mike Huffman, and Woody Mullis.
