From https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swayin%27_to_the_Music_(Slow_Dancing)

"Swayin' to the Music (Slow Dancin')", initially titled "Slow Dancing", is a song written by Jack Tempchin. Under the title "Slow Dancing", the song originally was a minor US hit in 1976 for the band Funky Kings (of which Tempchin was a member). The song became much better known as "Swayin' to the Music (Slow Dancin')" in a 1977 cover version by Johnny Rivers.

Rivers's recording of the song ... was the first release on Rivers's own Soul City label following the label's reactivation in June 1977. The track was issued under the title "Swayin' to the Music (Slow Dancin')" to avoid confusion with the current single release "Slow Dancing Don't Turn Me On" by the Addrisi Brothers.

Rivers's "Swayin' to the Music" had great chart success, reaching #10 on Billboard Hot 100, #8 on the US Adult Contemporary chart, #3 on Canada's chart, and #7 on Canada's Adult Contemporary chart. It is also Rivers's most successful song on iTunes.

The Funky Kings' version was SLOW.

Johnny Rivers picked up the tempo and sang it with passion. He takes you to the scene. You are there with him. My grandkids love his version.

I agree wholeheartedly on Johnny Rivers's version being better than The Funky Kings's. 👍🏻

I promise to investigate The Funky Kings to see if I can appreciate their other work. My tastes are esoteric but maybe they are just not my style. 🤔
