    Theme Parties

    I'm not a newbie and still enjoy most all of the theme parties. The most fun part, to me, is to see what everyone comes up with. We live in a cold climate and just did a "beat the winter blues" party. It was really great how many people wore blue. Most people own some, so we didn't make it...

    Christmas Music for Viennese Waltz

    It Came Upon a Midnight Clear from "Wonderful Christmas Waltzes" - available on iTunes. The artist is "CMH Holiday", a compilation, I believe.

    Halloween tango song

    This is an older thread, but I've found it helpful today as I plan this year's Halloween dance. More Magma (Ram's Volcanic Hotrod Taxi Mix) by Ramasutra. It needed just a bit of editing (fade in, etc.) and came out absolutely fabulous as a Tango with a Halloween twist.

    Slow Waltz Song Suggestion?

    DJ Dancesport Ice has a CD called Very Ballroom. It just came out within the past couple of months or so. He remixes songs for dance and has used Waltz songs from music, video games, movies, all very current and all very well done. I can't post links (?), but you can find it on WRD Music.

    Slow Waltz Song Suggestion?

    Yes, that's right. I Belong To You (Il Ritmo Della Passione) by Eros Ramazzotti is not a Waltz, but might work for NC2S. There is a version by Orchestra Alec Medina. It's on Chartbreaker for Dancing Vol. 18. That one is a Waltz.

    WCS - In Italian

    Ritorni Mia by Marco Carta will work as well.

    WCS - In Italian

    Excellent suggestion, we think alike! I was actually on that very page today. Italian Top 20. The sad part is, most of those songs are in English! But it did prompt me to check out the artist Marco Carta, He has a song called Un Grande Libro Nuovo that's nice (not currently in the top 20, but...

    WCS - In Italian

    Here's a bit of a fun challenge - anyone know of a West Coast Swing song in Italian?

    1970s Themed Party

    Joe, normally I am all for ballroom covers. I think the party hosts prefer original artists for this event, so that's what I am going to look for first. But I may slip in a ballroom cover or two - there are many good ones that would fit this event perfectly!

    1970s Themed Party

    THANK YOU for the excellent suggestions!!! I am laughing while remembering these songs. This is going to be great :) Warren, it's not an official, advertised party, so I guess I could fudge a little in terms of absolutely strict tempo... but it is an experienced crowd who will know immediately...

    1970s Themed Party

    Hi everyone, I've been a ballroom DJ for years now and have a huge library of songs. But I have a little challenge on my hands. I have been asked to host a birthday party about a month from now with a 1970s theme. They're all getting dressed up in 70s clothes, etc. and they want the music to...
