    Does anyone have a dramatic tango music? I have tons of them but all sound pretty much the same. I kinda like the tango from the US movie of shall we dance (beginning part) and also the tango from Circus du soleil. Any heard of any others? thanks in advance!

    The tango from the Mr & Mrs Smith soundtrack is pretty cool. Can't remember the name offhand, but it's obvious if you look at the soundtrack.

    Edit to add: I just realized I've only ever danced AT to it...don't know if it's ballroom tango-able. Sorry about that.

    Astor Piazzolla's Concierto Para Quinteto:
    for me the 1st and last 2min of this song are about as dramatic as it gets

    "El Tango de Roxanne" from the Moulin Rouge movie. You can find a ballroom cover on the "Ballroom Emotions" CD.

    Sorry about that. My bad.

    It's actually kind of funny, because I consider it a very non-AT-ish song.

    My picks: (1) El Choclo (Kiss of Fire) by Ettore Stratta; (2) Serenata in Ultimate Ballroom Album 3 Disc 2; (3) Dicitencillo. I am choreographing a tango showcase on the basis these tangos. Please tell me what you think.

    thank contracheck for the info. #1 sounds good. Im looking for something a little more dramatic like that tango song from Shall we dance, I dont know what the song is called but it had that strong accent it was in the beginning of the movie.

    Well, what can I say. The best tango composer of all time

    They used Santa Maria del Buen Ayre by Gotan Project. Could that be it?
