    There's at least one song by Balkan Beat Box that I like for dancing also, but I cna't remember it off hand.

    I like "Donde Voy", by Tish Hinojosa. It has a lovely melody and heart-breaking lyrics. It's actually a waltz, but too slow to be a vals crusada, so I would dance it as a tango, but still in 3/4.

    And, based on Bastet's comment, I like the idea of playing alternative tango for cortinas, but playing the entire tune.

    we do that for casual milongas. we'll play entire songs of alternative as the cortina or other dance style so people can do a little salsa or cha cha or WCS in between if they feel like it.

    Another I like but haven't got to try out in a milonga setting is Lisa Ekdahl's "Slow Knowing Smile"

    La Valse d'Amelie

    Yann Tiersen is still a permanent feature of vals or world tandas here. He is currently on tour in Mexico and will visite Hamburg in may. Already bought the tickets. And, I really love the rock version of Amelie !!

    Some more ideas:

    Mad World - Gary Jules

    NeoVals:
    Hijo De La Luna - Mecano
    Valsapena - Cirque Du Soleil (probably trim the intro for length and dancability)
    Das Gefuhl - Annett Louisan

    I know I've got some other stuff, but I've got to dig through and find it. There's some stuff by 311 that I like as milongas, and NIN "Closer," and "Prisencolinensinciusol." Gotta find them...lunch break is over.
