    I just saw this now! Glad it stands out and is recognizable. :)

    MP, of all the comps we've been at together apparently, I have yet to actually introduce myself to you at one of them ...

    The name of the samba is "Falar do Tempo" by Bebo Best. The original is way too slow for samba, so you'll have to speed it up a lot. Or find an already samba-ified version. I don't know where I got my version, so I can't help you there.

    Actually the original just sped up to 100 BPM works just fine as a samba, as is used in the clip. The extra bass and echo is added by the sound system used by the DJ.

    I knew I had heard this song before! I've had it in my library for a while, just forgot about it. I love knowing Spanish! Makes finding some songs easier lol :)

    The name of the mambo is "Chiquicha" by El Puma DJ y Rulo Miami Sound.

    I posted about this song a few weeks ago, but now I have an actual video link to go with it (thanks to No Name).

    Anyone know this rumba?

    Please do! I'm guessing you will be at DCDI 2012? I'll (probably) be wearing the green dress then so come find me. :)

    Here's to hoping -- I'm actually moving up to Boston this fall, so it may be a bit of a trek, but I had such a blast last year that I'm willing to make the journey :)

    There's a song being played?

    As I observe it, yes...

    I'd ask if there's something wrong with the video link, but it seems to work perfectly fine for me.

    Sorry I don't have an audio version, but I'm hoping someone can help me if I give a few lyrics, such as they are (as I only know bits and pieces at that). But I'm looking for a title/artist of this foxtrot type song. It's a jazzy/bluesy type sound.

    Part of the lyrics....and they may sound a little crude lol, guess that's why I remember them ;)

    "I'll be your ****ycat licking your milk"
    another line not in order.. "Will you be my sugar rush, make me get high with just one touch?"

    Anyone? Not a lot to go on but I love that song.

    Thanks!

    Jessie J - Sexy Silk. Just plugged the lyrics into Google with the word "lyrics." :)

    Thanks dlliba10.

    Good idea! :)

    Sometimes I can't see the forest for the trees, ya know? lol

    BTW, highly recommend the song for a fun upbeat foxtrot.

    I would suggest this song more for American foxtrot. For me it doesn't work for International Foxtrot. If sped up it would work as American Swing as well.

    Sorry, all I hear is blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.

    Very good point. It was intended as an American Smooth FT, at least as I was referring to it. :)
