I am so very happy that K atie and A nton have the American Smooth at Blackpool - this is perfect and what I would have wished for them.
Anything beyond Blackpool is a bonus but I am glad justice has been done and they are going to be there Very Happy

Lucky Anita. If Gleb is smart he can make a brilliant paso here. Jay and Aliona have the right music with "Cuba", so both should do well, and Housewives choice and Katie should be fine with Dino, but a jive to River Deep is all wrong for me? Not sure about Georgia's track?

RE: What Dances this week

Post  mauveangel09 on Tue Nov 17, 2015 7:53 pm

Wow! I have to say this looks like the best week of music for a long time!

A couple of my all time favourites being featured - 'I'm a Believer' is one of them along with 'Cuba' by the Gibson Brothers - I defy anyone not to want to get off their sofa and jiggle away when this one comes on bounce bounce quintessential salsa and I think the whole planet should Salsa to it cheers Seriously if Jay boy can't let go and turn it on to this one - then he is never going to................

Another treat is Malaguena - how great to hear this one - I am sure that G leb will really make something out of this one and I can see the paso as a dance that will really suit A nita - is this the week that they could finally up their scores to the top of the board??

I'm sure A nton will plan a very easy on the eye American Smooth to Deano. I would like to see them looking relaxed, upbeat and flowing in sync without too challenging choreography. Whilst not a fan of the big 80's n umbers I know people love a bit of Whitney so it will be interesting what Gio and Georgia do with their Viennese Waltz American Smooth - having had a few weeks of fast and frenetic it will be good to see whether she can sustain her high standard through a classic and slower ballroom routine.

Along the way a bit of 'Anything Goes' and to round it all off - a bit of Tina Turner - what not to like??

Well the only one I am not so keen on is K and K's 'Nine to Five' - not that I don't like the song but it seems a bit heavy and slow for the QS - I take it the band will be speeding up the tempo a little?

Roll on Blackpool

I don't have to do a full post 'cos mauve covered it all! Generally great music, but less sure about Kellie and Peter's (with you there Mr T). Nothing horrifies me on that list though.

Cheers for posting all the links B4, I'm off to have a listen Smile

It seems they have saved all the good music choices for one night in Blackpool! I think the Whitney. N.umber will work really well for a VW AS- I predict lots of fast twirls across the floor, hold on to your stomach GG I think it will be fast and furious- I feel a cheesy VT about going on the waltzer at the funfair in prep while Georgia inducts Giovanni into the delights of the British seaside in the off season! Wink

So far it looks like it's going to be a great night cheers cheers cheers

Had to dash off to watch the football earlier. Creditable display of unity towards the French and I was a bit surprised the match went ahead. It did however and apparently without incident. So....the dances.....

Oh joy, Malaguen~a, a rousing Spanish Gypsy dance for the paso. A real oppoprtunity for Anita there and I hope they sieze it with both hands. An opportunity to use flamenco style dance full of drama, and let the woman be a cape instead of a bull. As I said before, A nton and Katie should do okay with Dean Martin and Jay and Aliona should have a ball with "Cuba".( They should watch Dity Dancing II, Havana Nights).Wink

I'll reserve judgement on the rest, but Tina Turner is not jive music by any stretch of imagination. The music, words and mood are so wrong, wrong, wrong. Great record, yes, but not for this. Point proving again..?

Thinking about dance choice music, there was a time back when Victor Silvester was a lad, when they played music and you danced. Now it all seems very "Rubic Cube",( should that be Rubic Cuba?) Cool  sort of keep at it long enough and it will come right. Gee, wouldn't it be good if they were taught to do something like this for a show dance... Amazing to think it was eighty plus years ago.

Aye, my fears were purely for the risk of another disaster Sid. The spirit was incredible and the sight of the Wembley arch lit up in the French colours was tremendous and moving. Can I confess a lifetime liking for The Marseillaise since I first saw Casablanca? It was a very long time ago. Wink

I was going to ask if you saw it at the cinema Mr T, but suspect even you were too young then Wink Such a poignant scene, all the more so when I read most the cast were actual refugees from Nazi Germany and their tears were real.

I actually did see it at the cinema Sid, though probably whe I was about ten. I was three in 1942 when it came out. That was back in the pre TV in the house days and being taken to the cinama by your parents and having two ounces of peardrops was a real highlight. Films didn't reach our local cinema hot from Hollywood. Very Happy I've seen it many times since and I would have been too young to be influenced by the song back then. I was probably cheering more at the gun scenes (as one did at that age) .

Here's the big band version of Malaguena from Ted Heath that I remember well. I saw him live several times.

This is even better. Sometimes words can get in the way.

I was sure someone had used Malaguena on Strictly before, and then it came to me....Natalie and V.incent.....and he choreographed it so well.

You're welcome Very Happy If I'm around I'll try and keep doing it.

I reckon someone's read our 'musical director thread'. There's been a few suggestions off there that's been used this series.

I'm really looking forward to two dances above the others. The music for Jay's Salsa and Anita's Paso should bring the house down (twice). I love dance music that suggests scenarios and atmosphere and both of these have it in spades. This is also why I'm more than a bit miffed about River Deep for a jive. Little Richard and Chuck Berry would kil themselves laughing. A song about lost love with lyrics about puppies and dolls for a jive, come on. Leaonard Bernstein and Ennio Morriconi could write music for horses to gallop to, point being, horses for courses, and this particular horse (the song, not Tina who I love but doesn't do joyful very much) is way off course in a dance hall. Stop it.... Evil or Very Mad

I found this (via the wonders of social media) and am musing if this is the tree that the producers are barking up wen they choose untraditional and unexpected music choices.... However, this has been edited meticulously and there is no one, set dance style that the music needs to accompany.

But it's a great watch....

^ Tis indeed a great watch D&P. There's also a dance rhythm that runs right through it, start to finish. Care to have a stab at what it is?  Winner gets a " Des O'Connor and Max Bygraves sing Carmen Miranda's greatest hits" album. Very Happy

Oh gosh - now I know how a rabbit feels when faced by two gleaming headlights...

I think I'm squished....

(PS - I know it' not waltz cos its not 3/4 timing. It sounds like 4/4 timing to me. But as we have established a very long time ago, I know diddly squat... But I fantasise I can hear a slow, slow, quick slow.. so, Foxtrot?)

You could maybe do a foxtrot, but much easier to play it again and do the "conga..." Very Happy
