You are musical director for one week......

Post  TANGOLERO on Fri Oct 10, 2014 7:59 pm

Some one jokingly suggested I choose the Strictly music. I could never do that, but if you could do it for just one week, what would you choose? Here are my choices:

Waltz. The anniversary song. Al Jolson      
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-y1O_r55Mw

Foxtrot..Some Enchanted Evening…Al Jolson

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_Xemxy5jdk

In the still of the night. Frank Sinatra   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzrpN1cqAf0

Quickstep: I’m sitting on top of the world. Bobby Darin  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbhTDWaGe84

Lazy hazy crazy days of summer:  Nat King Cole:    

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AoLogdbVS3U


Samba . Brazil..Edmundo Ross….http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fz1dlGOm3O8


Paso Doble. Espana Cani   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrbkcUdDSyQ

Tango. Santa Maria..Gotan Project.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xu3AjfZyg6k

Rumba. Sway. Dean Martin.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zsgcXZzu6io
Rumba .Perhaps. Doris Day.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUVT1NZtZPo

Viennese Waltz. Blue Danube…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDaJ7rFg66A.

Love theme from Romeo and Juliet..Henry Mancini

Wow Tango that's a brilliant idea for a thread

I'm not a musician so would probably get my time signatures all wrong, and my only official dance classes was as a 7yr old, BUT I know what I like and my old dance certificate says I've got natural timing and rhythm, so I shall put on my thinking cap and come back to you.

My choices will probably be an eclective mix of traditional, and off the wall craziness, a bit like me really, depending on the phase of the moon

Need to think about this, but two that need no thinking about are:

Foxtrot - Bobby Darin again - Beyond the Sea

Quickstep - Americano - but as performed by Francesco Napoli, not Lady GaGa or any of the "popped up" versions (which I think Vincent used once).

Need to have a cogitate about a few more.

Always liked it years ago till I heard Charles Trenet's La Mer.That's exquisite and one of my favourite songs. (I actually have hundreds) Even Julio's would be good. Very Happy

Some classy choices Mr T, and I expected nothing less!


I've often thought about a Viennese Waltz to Ennio Morricone's Chi Mai but don't know if the rhythm's right, could be beautiful though:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbHP9NtSnB0


And I know it's non-tradtional, modern-ish synth pop but I'd quite like to see a Tango to "Fade To Grey" by Visage (one of my favourite songs).

Lovely piece of music, haven't heard that for ages Sid. The first dance that comes to mind for me with that music is a rhumba.

I'd love week based on period or period style music. Michael Nyman's The Heart asks Pleasure First would be one.(The theme from the Piano) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u83xIXliIXY

And Cavalleria Rusticana (Start at one minute in) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OvsVSWB4TI

And this ( a more upbeat version of Concierto Aranjuez for a dramatic paso.) Dave Arch could surely up the beat in places. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORvBwSOIkrI

And Sky's version of Toccata http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olGEi5I3Q9c

Ah, okay, it'll never happen.. Wink

All decent choices, but by choosing Ella you have just become my friend for life C.D. Very Happy Likewise with the Miller's Dance. I actually bought the 45.r.p.m instrumentasl version of Isla Bonita- still have it somewhere. Only the instrumental though, as I can't stand the sight of Madonna.

I saw Milos last year. He was fantastic and funny. He told us a little tale in-between each piece including how he broke his strumming nail en route to the show 'Not such a big deal for you but for me - disaster.' You could have heard a pin drop whilst he was playing, in fact he asked if anyone was there at one point, as it was so quiet and he had the lights shining in his face and couldn't see out! They put the house lights up briefly and he almost fell off his stool at the packed audience smiling at him.

I am SO jealous you saw him 'live'! Evil or Very Mad <jk.>lol!

I remembered looking for some classical guitar music to buy in amazon years ago, in fact shopping for birthday present by the go-to guitarist Segovia, and then the automatic amazon recommend function kicked (presumbly the fact that up-and-coming Karadaglic and Segovia shared the same record label) in after I clicked through several of Segovia's albums. So I did a youtube search and then found that he was a very, VERY exciting player. His style is more 'in your face', and judging by some 'purists' on youtube, you would have thought Milos had committed multifarious cardinal sins in the way he played trembolos, but to my classically trained ear I thought it was 'different', but different in a good way. Okay, I may not be playing the guitar myself (I play the piano), but it's clear for people with any sense to see that he's going places with his God-given talents, like Williams.

Sorry, I digressed... Embarassed

I saw a female Greek guitarist called Eleftheria Kotzia in my lunch break years ago. She wore an evening gown and it was the first time I heard 'Asturias'. I saw a poster for Milos when I was booking for Fla via & Vin cent I think. I took a chance, bought a ticket then went out and bought his CD 'The Guitar'. Understated brilliance. Quietly modest. See him if he comes back.

Here are my choices - I make no apologies for some cheese but also some classics, some personal favourites and some that have been used before on SCD:

Samba
Tequila by the Champs – 1958 - Quintessential Samba
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5J802Hqsu8

Paso doble
El Gato Montes
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnJHUqR-MXA

Tango
Por Una Cabeza (Shown in various films including Scent of a Woman and Schindlers List) Used for an Argentine Tango in SCD but I think it works for a ballroom Tango - oozes 1930s the essence of Tango - no stomping around here.
