    I would like 2/3 nice songs, with easy to hear beat, to practice American/Intl foxtrot and international rumba too. Any suggestions?

    (I'm taking classes in this so...)

    we regularly practice to Frank Sinatra's "look at me now"...there is a fairly new "best of " CD of his that I bought in NYC that has at least a dozen appropriate selections...you can literally feel the feather...rumba, idunno

    Foxtrot: Frank Sinatra's "How Little It Matters (How Little We Know)" or "Witchcraft."

    Rumba: Chayanne's "La Playa" or even Terence Trent d'Arby's "Sign Your Name" (the latter should be easier to find).

    I think, for our purposes, we should change it to...

    Waltz
    Tango
    Foxtrot!

    Ah, see, I have a rule... I don't drink and dance because I don't want my head to keep spinning even after I stop. ;) You can have the whiskey though!

    Very true, very true...

    Back to topic for Sagitta though...

    Foxtrot:
    Any Dream Will Do - Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
    Me and Mrs. You - Michael Buble's version is really good for beginner foxtrot
    Walkin' my Baby Back Home - Nat King Cole

    Rumba:
    I Just Called to Say I Love You - Stevie Wonder
    Just My Imagination - The Temptations
    Viente Anos - Buena Vista Social Club
    Lightning Crashes - Live (The intro is really great for hearing the S,Q,Q of American rumba)

    Bella Maria De Mi Alma - Antonio Banderas (Clear beats, beautiful melody)
    Casi Un Bolero - Ricky Martin (Same as above)
    I second Chayanne's "La Playa".
