I'm sure I am dating myself by admitting this, but there was once a time when there seemed to be a format to every good party. First Hip Hop was played by the DJ, then uptempo R&B leading into mid-tempo R&B, then Reggae, then House music, then the downtempo R&B slow jams. Looking back, there was a reason for this musical order. If by the end of the party you hadn't danced with enough people who piqued your interest to be able to choose just one that you would allow yourself to be physically close enough to slow dance with, then you squandered any chances of future date mates.
My analysis: Probably not. Unless it's an actual event where a big deal is made out of the actual event of slow dancing itself, e.g. a wedded couple's "first dance," then the actual art of slow dancing may be dying a quick and forgotten death. It is for this reason that President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama dancing to Etta James' "At Last" at least a dozen times on Inauguration night was such a spectacular event. It gave this country a concrete example that Black Love certainly exists even when these families are being decimated. But for all the hope that Obama in office may bring some much needed changes to Hip Hop and R&B, thus far it seems as though our national pride has given way to complacency yet again.
