    It should be back now. It was deleted by accident when someone was cleaning up spam.

    Thanks larinda, except the link has been removed and without it you can't hear the song... so no one can tell us what it is! Any way of bringing it back?

    i'm looking for the title of a tango tune danced in a movie starring Kim Novak,James Garner and Tony Randal.
    The tune is heard in a scene with Novak and Randal,where they dance a,from what i understand, is a tango,but i i'm no expert.i think its a tango.I tried movie sites,but nobody knows because the tune is not credited.The music in the movie is by songwriter -arranger FrankDeVol.Does anyone have any idea where i can get info about that tune?maybe someone expert in tangos?

    I really want to help you out, but all I hear at 1:08 in that video is a rather random, undefined fifties Hollywood film song.

    You can sort-of post a link. Just put a space in the URL, and while it won't appear as a clickable link, anyone can identify the intended address and navigate to it anyway. If it's a legitimate link (not spam), some established member will usually repost the link for you anyway.

    thanks for the idea


    its a couple minutes from the movie in mp3,there are the voices of the actors but the tune is easily recognizable for anyone who knows what it is.

    It's certainly tango - but the arrangement is of the strict-tempo ballroom type. I don't recognise the tune, but it may have been composed for the film, of course.

    thanks.The guy who did the music for the film, Frank DeVol is well known for making arrangements for famous tunes,so i thought it may be such a a case.But it also may be an original score.

    Well it several times is nearly Hernando's Hideaway, but never quite gets there - but perhaps someone else will recognise it.
