    Should look like, only if you are trying to be historically accurate. If ones desire is simply to dance, why does a particular style have to be implied. I believe tango should be danced according to ones personal feelings and manner.

    I've never heard this version of the song, but I admit to wanting to do a waltz piece either as a dance or a skating routine, to the Metallica original.

    Information on when and where something was composed and/or recorded can be useful information when communicating with words. That same information can be used in a too broad, or narrow minded way, and be very limiting.
    Same thing with styles of dance.
    Blair, and others I'm sure, has written that dance responds music, so that when the "music changes", dance styles change, too.
    Canyengue is interesting to me because I enjoyed the freedom to move differently in the AT environment that can feel so confining. It's interesting, too, to note that some writers more or less dismiss the existence of the style, and the contribution of African (South) Americans to AT.

    "La cumparsita" was initially a little march, composed by the young student of architecture, Gerardo Hernán Matos Rodríguez on an uncertain date, that we can place between the late 1915 and the early 1916, for the carnival marching band organized by the Federation of Students of Uruguay, precisely for the on-coming celebrations."

    be - was - been

    That doesn´t interfere, that´s complementary! And it points out the basis of our dance: walking!

    Tango in Harlem (Touch and go)
    Karma coma (Massive attack)
    Plush Mix (Steve Arguelelles)
    Bachelorette (Bjork)
    Cornflake girl (Tori Amos)
    Mad world (Alex Parks cover)
    Precious (Depeche Mode)
    Say it ain't so (Murray Head)
    Several songs from the Virgin Suicides soundtrack (Breathe me, Playground love, highschool lover)
    Several songs from the Amelie Poulain soundtrack (j'y suis jamais allé, la valse des vieux os, les jours tristes)

    That's not too many titles but if all the trolls who invaded your thread, starting with Janice, had posted titles instead then you'd have your 40 songs easy.

    No problem. And welcome to our little world :)

    Good for you.

    That sounds like an eminently constructive and positive way of approaching things.
