1. In August 1987, a little film named "Dirty Dancing" opened in theaters and captured the hearts of many--making Patrick Swayze into a certified heartthrob! Admit it: You know all the words to "Dirty Dancing," and you swoon every time you hear that famous line "nobody puts Baby in a corner." You may have even tried the famous dance lift yourself! There is even a TV remake of the movie in the works, casting Abigail Breslin in the role of Baby, and Colt Prattes in the iconic role that made Swayze into a star. Have you seen the original "Dirty Dancing"?

2. "Dirty Dancing" was of course, all about the music and the dancing. The storyline actually dealt with some pretty heavy and serious topics, such as abortion, class differences, and of course, youth and sex. However, it did produce one of the best soundtracks. How many of these songs--some originally for the movie and many oldies--do you know?
