    maybe it depends on the version.... the version I have of it is definately a samba too. (nothing like a jive), but there could be one out there that is a jive.

    This is a cover of Simarik, by Tarkan.
    The original version is much nicer samba, with a sharper beat.

    And while we're at it:
    Pon de Replay - Rihana

    Love the song. But can anyone actually tell me what the title means?

    Maybe that's because Hakim is a Rai singer.

    Read somewhere that it means "play it again", but it was on the internet, so a grain of salt....

    Please humor a marginally computer literate old fart...how do you edit a song? I have a few that could use editing, but haven't a clue how.

    You use something like Adobe Audition to clip out the offending parts. You may need to do some massaging to merge the remaining parts together.

    I can't believe someone else mentioned "Woke Up This Morning" by Alabama 3 as a samba! I've always listened to it and thought it sounded like one, and then stopped myself thinking...it can't be. I guess I'm not completely off-base!! I also like it as WCS.

    On another note (yes, I know...it's late), I love "Pon de Replay" by Rihanna as a samba. But for lessons my teacher and I also use it for a quickstep. At first I thought he was crazy, and I felt like I needed to realign my brain. But now I LOVE it for quickstep.

    I do a lot of audio editing (including music) for clients. I use the predecessor to Adobe Audition (Cool Edit). With my background as a musician, I can usually make edits that sound seamless. I can also use Cool Edit to increase and/or decrease tempi as needed (increasing usually works better), even without affecting pitch.

    Audition does a better job at time/pitch adjustments than Cool Edit did.
