    What are your favorite milonga (the music/dance, not the gathering) songs and step patterns?

    I'll go first.

    Songs:

    Ella es asi - Edgardo Donato Y Sus Muchachos (Singer:Horacio Lagos)
    Milonga Del 900 1933 - Carlos Gardel
    Reliquias portenas - Orquesta Tipica Francisco Canaro
    Morena - Esteban Morgado
    Un Baile e Beneficio - Otros Aires
    Beltango - Milonga para un armonica
    Milonga Sentimental - Otros Aires
    Amor que se Baila - Otros Aires
    Baldosa floja - La Chicana
    La Milonga de Bs As - Francisco Canaro
    Milonga del corazon - Orquesta Tipica De Juan D`Arienzo (Singer:Alberto Echague)
    Oro y plata - La Chicana
    Tango Negro - Juan Carlos Caceres

    Foot patterns:

    Back ochos with leader double step (snake walk? whatever you call it)
    Continuous back crosses (back cross, unwind, back cross, etc)
    Fast front ochos (aka the butt-wiggle. :D )
    Ocho cortado
    Leader walking backwards in double-time, follower walking forwards in single time
    Just continuous sidestepping and changing up the rhythm can be fun


    How about neo-milongas? Anything with a heavy beat can work I suppose. Got any ideas for fun neo-milonga songs?

    I enjoy milonga too much to give a few favorites, and many of mine have already been mentioned - except for one: El Esquinazo

    I like 'm slinky rather than fast.
