1. "Gotitas De Miel"
From "the Ultimate…Latin Album 2" presented by Greg De Wet, worldwide Music company, England, 2000
Dance: International Rumba/American Bolero
this is a great, uplifting Latin song with fabulous female vocals!
2. "Starve A Fever"
by The Atomic Fireballs
from "Torch This Place," produced by Bruce Fairbaim, Atlantic Recording Corp, 1998/99
Dance: Slow Foxtrot; can be sped up for American Foxtrot
the singer's low, raspy vocals are the BEST — this CD also has many great swing tracks, including "Caviar & Chitlins" and "Drink, drank, drunk."
3. "We The Boys Will Rock Ya"
by The Big Six
from the CD "Swing This, Baby," Slimstyle Recording Corp, 1998
this is FAST — excellent for hard-core Lindy Hoppers. Lots of breaks — good for advanced styling. The Big Six have a great rockabilly sound.
4. "I Will Go With You"
by Donna Summer
Sony Music Entertainment, 1999.
I actually like the "Italian Uptempo Version" the best off of this CD single, although each mix of the song is good. Fast-dancin' version of the Bocelli/Brightman hit.
5. "Speak Real Low"
by The Speak Easy Spies
from the cd, "Did Somebody Say Swing?" Ripe Productions, Arcata GA, www.ripeproductions.com
Dance: American Foxtrot or West Coast Swing
this is American style Foxtrot the way I like it — snazzy & jazzy. The female vocalist is smokin'! **Slows down a bit at two different times. Good for shows.
by The Propellerheads, from the soundtrack to The Matrix
Maverick Records, 1999
Dance: International Cha-Cha, Techno
OK, so it may be a little rough for ballroom, but this track gets you going on a slow day! I use it to teach my "cardiodance" classes, and we are movin' & groovin' 'till we can't sweat no more!
