Samba
Tequila by the Champs – 1958 - Quintessential Samba
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5J802Hqsu8
or
Soul Bossa Nova (AKA Theme from Austen Powers) by Quincy Jones – a favourite of mine
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5ALPzS0QfQ

Cha Cha
Soul Drummers by Ray Barretto – from the wonderful Fania label

Salsa
Salsation by David Shire (From Saturday Night Fever) although I think they were doing the Hustle in the film
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LfOmhUL5BI

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.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gcxv7i02lXc

Quickstep
L-O-V-E by Nat King Cole
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JErVP6xLZwg


Foxtrot
Let There by Love by Nat King Cole (played at my wedding)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aJfZw3SA2c

American Smooth
Fly me to the Moon by Frank
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhujM7T1_fQ

Waltz
Moon River - sorry know it's been used loads of times but I love it - Andy Williams version - correct tempo - makes me cry
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_jgIezosVA

Viennese Waltz
Where do you go to my Lovely- Peter Sarstedt – 1969
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_jgIezosVA

Rhumba - two different types of Rhumba
Guantanamera (couldn't find a better version)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jm1anurhbeg
Samba pa ti – Santana
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5AUm_xaE9A

Jive
Johnny B Goode - Chuck Berry
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFo8-JqzSCM

Charleston
Lead in my Pencil - Paolo Nutini
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzomI8wcI40

Oh you have some real corkers in there Mauve! I would use all of them except your choices for American Smooth and the Waltz - love, love, love both those tunes but have other preferred tunes (which I have not yet sussed out Rolling Eyes ) for these two dances. I love the Santana track - this was the one playing when Artem and James did their fantastic and hilarious rumba shown on ITT:

I can only see them when I hear it! Very Happy

Me too Mauve- it reminds me of my mum because it was one of her favourites by Andy Williams. The year she died someone did a  lovely waltz to this ( I seem to remember a beautiful  lemon yellow swirly dress but I might be getting mixed up with something else) and I sat there with tears streaming down my face.  A bit overused now, but will always be a fave of mine when done properly a la M. Williams ( Donny take note)

Some great stuff there Mauveangel, particularly Peter Sarsdet. Always been a favourite since I first saw him do it live on T.V.
This would be my Guantanamera:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QO4aegj-jA
I might also throw in: When they Begin the Beguine (The Artie Shaw version is immense). Gee there are so very many great pieces of music...

Hi Allse

Funnily enough it reminds me of my Dad - also I kind of get deja vu back to remembering the Andy Williams Show when I was very young.

As if that wasn't enough- it reminds me a of a tear jerker episode in 'Sex and the City' when Mr Big is leaving to go to the West Coast and at the end of the episode there is a tribute to the city of New York (after 9/11)

I like Peter Sarstedt too. Don't know if you can dance to them but I used to play Boulevard, Mulberry Dawn and Beirut in the car. Frozen Orange Juice was another feel good happy tune of his

You've all been very busy! Been catching up with all the tracks, I especially like some of the Tango, Paso and Salsa suggestions - feel the music for these particularly dances is often either inappropriate or recycled.

B4 I was thinking a Viennese Waltz to Hedwig’s Theme (Harry Potter Theme Song) would be perfect for Halloween Week. Also love to see a Waltz to Under The Bridges of Paris -beautifully romantic Smile

You are of course allowing for the melody to be played on a piano accordian, Sid? Very Happy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rhe4hN8Mj0M

Maybe a romantic cities night:
Under the Bridges of Paris. Ella/ Dean Martin.
I love Paris, Ella/Frank Sinatra

A foggy Day in London Town, Frank Sinatra.

Talking of Harry Potter, I thought Thom looked good in the VT clip dressed as Harry.

Another slow Cha-Cha suggestion - Fashion (Paulo Nuttini)

But of course, Mr T Smile Creates the most beautiful sound, makes you want to get up and dance.

Just realised that Paolo Nutini's 'Scream' is a good tempo for Samba.

I noticed that Disney's Cinderella had a lot of ballroom waltz songs that's quite suitable. And it will give them excuses to dress the female celebs in princess dresses as well.

A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBVqWSWPxlg

and this one (don't know the name, presumbly "So This is Love"?): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSsx0PC5yrk

Also, for VW, definitely Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty Waltz, or if they must get someone to sing it, then the Disney's version:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_oXUx1aBxqA (song version), or the final scene with Tchaikovsky's (trancated) version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCPRcAvB7MU

Okay, this might be a Disney overload I know, so forgive me... Embarassed

edit to add: b4p, your VW choice was inspired! Cool

Whilst not strictly a tango B4p, have you heard this? It's actually Colombian done by Julio, but I think it would make a great tango piece.

Here's the original version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nmb80HXWsFQ

Can't beat a bit of Disney CD. I think 'Once upon a dream would make a great Viennese Waltz. Which choice of my VW's did you like?
