References?[edit]

It would be good to have reliable sources - the term does exist, it can be found roughly 50 pages from the end of "Rabbit at Rest" by John Updike. I just think it would be good to have some newspaper cuttings with it (surely that can be found somewhere by Sinatra fans), and also possibly to find out who coined the term.Zigzig20s 13:13, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Hyphenated or not?[edit]

Is there any consensus as to whether a hyphen is appropriate for this term (and the article title)? Robert K S (talk) 12:46, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

unexplained term[edit]

I went to school in the fifties and sixties and went to a lot of sock hops in our gym, but I have no idea what a "flop dance" is. A search with Google did not help. Can someone either explain or remove this? 37.99.42.97 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 08:31, 14 May 2017 (UTC)
