    I love the song "In my daughter's eyes" by Martina McBride. Does the timing fit with a dance timing? I was looking for rumba showcase

    My alternate thought was "dance with my father"

    Slow rumba? Does it work?

    By my count, "In My Daughter's Eyes" is about 62 beats per minute. Typically for American Rumba you want somewhere around 120, and for International Rumba 90-100 ish. If you really like the song, my recommendation would be to speed it up a little bit and try a Bolero.

    "Dance with my Father" by Luther Vandross clocks in at about 81 beats per minute. I think it works pretty well for a slow Rumba.
