Laurenz always is a good choice (he´s one of my favorite). But I want to add that Arrabal does not fit to the rest (for me anyway). Arrabal is club style, the rest pure salón style.

I don't know about the club style vs salon style thing, but I do agree that I probably wouldn't put Arrabal in a tanda with the other two songs (definitely not with Garua). For me, the emotions I feel from Garua is about the embrace, while Arrabal is more about the rhythm (although actually a bit of a tweener).

I also love Pedro Laurenz.

Tangobro, thanks for starting this thread. I've considered a few new possibilities as a result of it.

I'm still experimenting with various Troilo combinations. Here is a tanda I plan to try this weekend. Feedback is welcome.


Te Aconsejo que Me Olvides



En Esta Tarde Gris



El Bulín De La Calle Ayacucho

YES!
"Te Aconsejo que Me Olvides" gets me scanning the room for a partner as soon as I hear it. "En Esta Tarde Gris" keeps the feeling flowing & if I managed to get the right partner @ the right time, ending with "El Bulín De La Calle Ayacucho" means I can just sit down & enjoy the afterglow of a good tanda.

I love these early Troilo songs, but do crave a wider range of his music making at milongas. I almost never hear anything except Troilo/Fiorentino from 1941. There is so much more, without needing to include the late concert music.

What are some of his other songs that you like?

From only a slightly later period (1943-44) and with singer, Alberto Marino. (BTW, the videos are chosen really for the music, rather than for the dancing):

  • Nada Más Que Un Corazón
  • Uno
  • Cuando Tallan los Recuerdos
  • Torrente

aarrrgghhh

OK call me weird - when I dance I'm focused on the music & the dance and don't process words, so when I 1st heard Margarita Gauthier
I danced in blissful ignorance. Once I sat and actually listened to it I could not decide whether to sob silently or slit my wrists, so I went to the snack table for the chocolate cake. Now I find it hard to enjoy dancing to. Way too melancholic, even by Tango standards.

Note to self: Stay in blissful ignorance.
