Have you ever been out somewhere with music playing and had a light bulb moment?  One of those "Hey!  I never know you could dance <insert dance here> to THIS!" revelations?

Well, I just did...

The theme from the Muppet Show is a quickstep!

Ha!  Since we were discussing it in the other thread... it just occurred to me that "Tom Sawyer" would work for a WCS.   Cheesy

"Follow Your Daughter Home" by The Guess Who is a slow tempo samba, great for learning

Nightclub two-step, or maybe a fast American rumba...

American style definitely.  It's too fast for International though.

Quite a few of Enrique Iglesias' songs are either samba or cha cha

Samba: Bailamos, Rhythm Divine, Could I have This Kiss Forever.

Cha Cha: Be With You (sort of), Tired of Being Sorry, Escape, Not in Love.

And many more! I love this guy

I didn't know there was another version.

I have the song tagged at 116bpm (29mpm).  International rumba is 25-27mpm, American rumba is danced at 32-36mpm.  So it's an in-between song, I guess.  It feels more like an American rumba to me, but that's just opinion.

"When I Look in your Eyes" by Andre 3000 is a quickstep!!! It's from the Idlewild Soundtrack, so I guess I shouldn't be *that* surprised...but still!  AWESOME!
