I think there must be a Spanish Cuban thing about singing over the rhythm. Ferres for instance.

I thought it was something to do with natives who were living on sour figs.
Gee, this one has a tang....oops I gotta go - that gradually got shortened to tangoopgo and then tango. - oh, never mind....
Tango (the dance with the stop "Baille Con Carte") is one of the most fascinating of all dances. Originating in Spain (flamenco) or Morocco (Moors, Berbers, zambra, flamenco), the Tango was introduced to the New World by the Spanish settlers, eventually coming back to Spain with Black and Creole influences.

No Tango was a Welsh folk dance brought over by Patagonian settlers where Welsh is still spoken. Tan = Fire and "go" is an abbrevaition of coch = red, hence tango = "Red Fire"
Now that's a very interesting theory, any historical evidence for that? would love to read it. Specially since Spanish settlement started late 15th century and the Welsh during the late 1900 a 400 year timegap

"The band also mines the past for hidden gems, including the Japanese-language track “Taya Tan,” a hypnotically precise reworking (with a hint of early seventies Japanese film noir) of the Japanese Saori Yuki hit."

Pink Martini ref album" Hey Eugene"

My DP just introduced me to Pink Martini!  Very danceable, very singable.

no evidence whatsoever just my imagination. The Welsh were a dour Chapel going lot and probably would not of approved of tango. The etymological origins of the word tango appear to be African

Do most singers sing on the beat?
not specifically, though it is mostly done that way in "pop" music

its always fun dancing to something with an offbeat singer, though sadly these days its becoming much more rare, with singers believe that the public only wants to hear music that makes rhythemical sense

so true ... probly why I like most of Jack White's works, his own and that of his producing too.

He is in the White Stripes and produced albums for the likes of Loretta Lynn, Beck, The Rolling Stones, Jeff Beck[3], and Bob Dylan.

He is apparently known for doing only 1 take, and produces a more raw earthy realness to music. Love it.

She does a good slow rumba with Songbird.

You have to fight through a lot of crap before you find your way up out of the toilet. Sometimes I think I have a good hold on the rim then I slip back in.  Each time I don't sink quite as deep though. - Rugby
