    The Sweet Escape, Gwen Stefani
    Love Song, Sara Bareilles
    Sexy Silk, Jessica Cornish (from the Easy A soundtrack) - this one is super cheeky! And has a great swinging Foxtrot beat.

    I usually use this to practice jive slowly. But jive and foxtrot are kinda cousins, so...

    Everybody Wants to be a Cat by Psaap is a pretty fun foxtrot. The tempo needs a little tweaking, but it always makes me smile whenever it comes on in practice rounds.

    it's got a nice sound but as for trying to dance to it, it is too plain ... all it inspires me to do is a basic around the floor. The Chaka Khan has some zip and pizazz ... listening to it conjures up several nice moves in my head.

    At about 42 MPM, a bit fast for smooth

    Ah, I'm not so concerned about precise metering. Even so I can adjust it.

    I slowed the song down to 30 MPM, didn't have the same pizzaz. No thanks.

    YMMV.
