‘Dirty Dancing’ Soundtrack Turns 26: Join Idolator & The Frisky For A Twitter Re-Listening Party!

Hold on. Has it really been 26 years since Francis “Baby” Houseman and Johnny Castle had “the time of [their lives]” at Kellermans up in the Catskills? The harsh reality: yes! As timeless as Dirty Dancing still feels, the movie is actually older than Rihanna, Miley, Selena and Taylor. And as much as the film owes its lasting impact to director Emile Ardolino, choreographer Kenny Ortega (whose list of credits include Michael Jackson‘s This Is It), and Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze‘s on-screen chemistry; where would a movie about dancing be without a killer soundtrack?!

So this afternoon, along with our friends at The Frisky, we’ll be celebrating the music that taught Baby (and the rest of us) how to move with a full-on Twitter re-listening party. Head below for details. Think of it like the “last dance of the season”. 

Today (August 21) at 4pm ET, we’ll press “Play” and relive the Dirty Dancing soundtrack from beginning to end. Join the Twitter listening party by using the hashtag #DDSoundtrack. We’ll see you then, spaghetti arms.
