    Ballroom dancing

    Little bit O/T but I've been learning to dance for about a year now. Trying to keep fit as the big 60 approaches

    The class I'm with have a summer dance and each pupil is asked to supply some music. Obviously I'd like to include a bit of Elvis. I've got some ideas of my own but can anyone suggest some goods tracks? Could be studio recordings, movies, remixes, anything really.

    Hoping it might introduce some of the other dances to a bit of EP at the same time.

    We do waltz, quickstep, foxtrot, tango, rumba, samba and cha cha cha.

    We also do rock and roll but I've got plenty of choice in that area

    "The Walls Have Ears" from Girls Girls Girls-seems to have a Cha Cha Cha feel to it-or perhaps even a Tango.
    Work in Progress!

    The Walls Have Ears - love this version, Al Pacino is great.

    I requested This is Our Dance for the Parent waltz at my daughter's wedding. DJ didn't know it -
    I had to loan him my CD! dummy


    Just pretend, I'm holding you, and whispering things soft and low.
    And think of me, how it's gonna be and just pretend I didn't go

    "Elvis Presley sings while two stars Tango!"
    I think it is the rhythm of the tango. I will not insist, it is foreign to me people say.
    And by the way, this is one of the best movie scenes (for me).
    Two people can dance!
