5 June 2019 - Conway Twitty - Slow Hand

Conway Twitty.

Covering the Pointer Sisters.

After a long hiatus here, you might not have expected that this would be our comeback choice.

And yet it makes a lot of sense.  The original was strongly country-themed.  With a few lyrical changes - because the original lyrics don't work for a heterosexual male.  And yet, I don't see that as his biggest alteration to the song.   The tempo is a lot faster - but that was appropriate for the genre at the time.
