Ok, tell you what, I'll choose "Gotan Project - San Maria - La Revencha del Tango" just to prove that I, too, like a little bit of latin influence from time to time too!


Now you're having a laugh now aren't you? That's Tango, it even has tango in the title. They dance the tango in the video too, It couldn't get more Tango Rolling Eyes

Mind you it is a good track

This demonstrates how subjective music can be.

This track would mostly be shunned as pretend Tango by the Argentine Tango enthusiast. Even Tango has camps with differing strong opinions. This track would best fit under the Neo Tango category.

When this track first came out I was dancing in the Southport Blues room in full Tango mode. Alongside us was Viktor & Yuko really going for it with a Latin style Jive. After the track a watching group commented on how fascinating it was to see 2 couples dancing so differently to the same track and making it work. This diversity is for me is the attraction of the MJ/Ceroc environment. It would become bland if we all danced the same and liked the same music.

Hmmm... another hard one. Well, I change my mind every few weeks, at the moment I am still very fond of Katy perry`s `Hot n cold. Which reminds me, I haven`t emailed the freestyle to request it for this saturday...Got to fly!

Love that track too Mike. The challenge though is to plump for just one track.

How about some more suggestions from folks. Looks like Sugarfoot's going to come up with some more Tango to sum up Jive.

Going to suggest a track Sugarfoot ?

For me, now, it's Shake It by Metro Station. No question!
