    While I know it can be danced to, it simply doesn't bring out any desire in me to dance tango to it.

    Some songs really inspire me to dance, some are neutral, some would make me want to stop dancing and take a break (like this one), and some actually make me want to leave the room so I won't have to hear it (like pretty much anything sung by Tom Waits).

    Different people like different things though.

    Of course, if you go by what the record company puts on the label, the most popular foxtrot of all time is "Rock Around the Clock" :).

    La calesita se destrozó nice translation of the merry go round broke down, recorded 5 months after the song came out on Victor in the States.

    "Fox Trot" seems to have been used for decades for just about any popular music written in 4/4. Milt Gabler, who produced "Rock.." certainly knew his music, but, how to sell the most records?
