    Here goes another 'favorites' thread.

    1. You get to pick 2 songs.
      1. The most favorite song you like to dance to.
      2. Your most favorite song that you like to listen to.
      3. It's ok to pick only one :)
    2. It has to be salsa music. cha-cha is ok. No merengue, bachata, cumbia, samba etc. (Well, it's my thread, my rules ;) )
    3. You can add up to 5 more songs as runner ups, not separated into danceable/non-danceable songs. This is optional, of course :)
    4. You CANNOT rank any two songs the same. You have to make up your mind as to which one you like more :)
    5. You are allowed to change the list. For eg, if you decide after a week that you like a different song, you can update your entry. So your entry can be a 'living' preference list. But you only get to post one list!

    The one that I don't know the name of yet. ;-) Let me explain...I like the kind that has breaks and changes moods and plays around. It should still sort of flow...but, my body awakens and the blood flows through my veins. The feet start moving and the body does things that only what it knows...and the mind doesn't comprehend or even bother to pretend. Unfortunately, after that I'm so out of it that by the time I get around to asking what the song was the dj doesn't remember..it was so many songs before...

    Gosh, so, so tough. But if I had to pick two to dance to...

    Fuego a la Jicotea por Orchestra Tabaco y Ron.... something or other

    and maybe something by Puerto Rican Power, like "Estoy Enamorado (de una chica)"

    Are we not allowed to edit our posts after a day? :-? Anyway, I made a mistake when I wrote this:
    I meant to refer to the version of "Cachondea" by Fruko y Sus Tesos. (I don't think Sonora Carruseles ever did any version of that song.)

    It's silly. Now I can't change my mind about favorites because DF software is not configured right. :rolleyes:
