    There is a rumba version of Lana Del Rey's summertime sadness out there, as well as Britney Spears Toxic (gone bossa nova!).

    Both are over 2 years old though ;-)

    There is a version of Happy that they play at WCS dances. I'm not sure which mix they play though. The one they use sounds a little funkier than this one.

    Sadly I do not! Maybe one day I'll have more time to devote to actually dancing WCS! Currently I have to be satisfied by watching videos (I stumbled upon some videos of Patty Vo a few years ago and I've been watching WC J&J videos ever since)

    Agreed on the single step! Although my newbie college kids did do a showcase that combined single step swing, jive, and slow salsa during the breaks. I'm obviously biased but it was adorable :)

    Pharrell Williams - Happy
    It's too bad no one seems to be teaching the three rhythms you can use in swing: single, double, and triple. Going double or single, or mixing them up with triples allows you to dance to a very wide range of tempos.

    Dierks Bentley - Drunk On A Plane
    I'd go cha cha, but I know a lot of people would do West Coast.

    LOL ! Patty comes out to New England occasionally and teaches in Windsor Locks, CT and Boston. I've taken a few lessons with her this year. She'll be in Windsor Locks Oct. 24.

    Did you see the video of Patty and Kyle ? I'll post a link in the WCS thread under Videos.

    (Not that new, but still a lovely Viennese waltz!)
    Nothing Else Matters - Metallica - 1991


    (An aside: One of my favorite Metallicisms is my interpretation of their song "Whiskey in the Jar" as "Whiskey and the Gyro.")
