    I heard this song a couple of times and didn't think of asking what song it was. Very groovy. Then I woke up with it in my head and I have to get it out. What song is this?? It features a "Si senor .... other words here" in the chorus.

    It wasn't by Justin Timberlake was it? It's kind of a cool song, and there are a billion songs with that phrase in them, but I wonder if that's the one that you want.

    Justin Timberlake? Oh my.. :D No, it wasn't him. This is a salsa song, very on2-ish, not jazzy though. I don't remember other words.

    The phrase was kinda like

    Sii (break) senor (break)
    ta da (break) ta da da da (break) Da <- here are actual words that I don't remember but that follow this rhythm.

    No, it's not Michaela either.

    Sorry Justin sang a song called Senorita. Was it a man or a woman that sang the song. I think that Los Lobos did something similar, and Gloria Estefan did something similar as well. ;)

    It was a man.

    I was thinking Estefan's "Si Senor!" from her CD, "Mi Tierra," ("Si, Senor! Es mi son") but apparently the OP is looking for a male singer. Oh well.

    What could you dance that to?

    I wonder if I finally heard the song today on the radio. I swear it sounded like Justin Timberlake, but not the one song that I mentioned before. This was completely different. The guy sung up high then sung down low. It's sort of weird when you listen to it. And why do I have Justin stuck in my head lol? I need to change to a different radio station at work I think lol.

    The tempo is way slow for salsa, and if you double-time it it's a little fast for salsa, it's a little slow for cha cha, and perfect for rumba. Of those three, I'd dance a cha cha to it if I had to pick, since it has a nice strong beat on every beat, even though it doesn't have a syncopation on 4& (there is one on 3&-4). Rumba just doesn't fit, and salsa doesn't either. But given a choice, I'd just hip-hop or booty dance to it. :wink:

    I recently heard a great salsa song, and wonder how it is called.
    I uses crescendo-type increases in tension (and loudness) towards some very clever 3-beat breaks in the music throughout the song (4 or six times).
    It is *not* Celia Cruz - La Vida Es Un Carnaval, which also uses one (or two) breaks in the music (after about 18 seconds, so you get an idea what I mean). Any idea what it might be?

    Thats like asking someone who lives in Wales, if they know someone called Jones..

    There are thousands of songs that it could be .

    indeed, a near-impossible question.
    The 3 second breaks in the music (with absolute silence) were very distinctive, though, and nothing I have observed in that detail in other things.
    But, I admit, it's not much to go with.

    I will check my " library " and see what I can find..( its a long task )

    2 questions that might help..speed ? med.. med/fast.. fast

    and any vocal?

    Med-fast, lots of mostly male vocals which almost have a hall effect into the three second break.
    Most better salseros in Vancouver knew the song and stopped at the appropriate moments in the dance.

    So, I'm guessing a popular song - one that is played often - if many dancers seemed to be aware of the dance breaks. Can you ask the dj who might still have the playlist played and quickly be able to tell you the song?
  18. Sagitta

    Sagitta Well-Known Member it Valio La Pena by Marc Anthony? I didn't think of this at first because I would never play it as a dj. I've deleted it from my songs as it has become way too overplayed - if I don't hear it for a year or two I might start to like it again.

    No, not that song, but thank you Sagitta.
    Hm, I tried posting here yesterday, but the post vanished, sorry about that.

    The phonation of the refrain goes, roughly:
    bada barababababababaamor pause pause pause pause pause pause dienamenseee
    bada barabababababababa dienamenseee
    (the second time, the music plays straight through the previous pause.
    (wow, this looks riddiculous - I will have to make an audio file)
