Bolero version of Radiohead's High and Dry that I found the other day. Interesting stuff.
My current earworm
Presumably not this one?
Richard Cheese is my hero!
Hahahah I know that one. I actually really like it (probably because I think it's the most odd match up of lyrics and musical feeling). Like a musical joke lol
Oh sorry I'm on my mobile device. I meant the Creep version by Karen Sousa...
That other one is pretty funny too lmao
DITTo and its on my ipod now
absofrigginlutely !!! i agree.... he needs to make longer cuts so we can dance to them in competition!!!!
I use many of them on my iPhone for practice.
On another note, why do comp DJs use "ballroom" covers of songs that are perfectly fine--if not better--done by the original artists?
If it comes packaged on a Dancesport CD and labeled as proper tempo and format, it's probably easier to use than to pull the original track, verify the tempo, ensure cuts for proper intros and no weird interspersed bars, etc.
No the one by the lady.... :-/ but even this one I'm kind of not a fan of...
Well one of my rounds is a standard round entirely made up of covers of Sex Bomb.
Oh dear Lord...
That's a song I really dislike, even in its original form. I can only imagine...
that is kind of awesome actually....
Hey if you can get through a bad music round that I run, comp music will be no problem.
Can you post a link for the quickstep version? I know someone who needs to hear this song over and over again.
ditto actually i want the whole sex bomb round
Sex bomb waltz?
I thought the tango in this Mirko and Edita honor dance was truly terrible. Cannot stand the incessant thumping and the techno-ness (?!)
The tango starts around 1:35 [youtube v=4iG1hkZ-o-E]
with appropriate tempo adjustments.
I just remember hearing it at a comp and thinking, "so he's either trying to turn a straight dude gay, or a lesbian straight... wut????" It just becomes a very different song when sung by a guy haha.
Ok, I take that back. In this version, he clearly sings "don' cha wish your BOYFRIEND," so my bad.
Though the first time I heard it at a comp, I could have sworn he said "girlfriend," and all I could think was how he was the wrong gender, so any self-perceived hotness on his end was irrelevant.
Unless the person was bi..... Ok wow I really need to stop now.
Separate names with a comma.
