I was hoping they'd ditch Musicals week this year. It's been done to death, let it rest in peace. Mad

SCD 2018 Which music and dance choices this week

Post  mauveangel09 on Tue Nov 27, 2018 10:33 pm

The music choices sound like a lot of 'B' sides to me!!!!!! Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad


I agree, either bin this theme night (there are plenty of other ones they could do) or at least make it full of classics - the choice is after all endless, as D+P has pointed out.  

The thing that makes me uneasy about theme nights is the way that the dance has to fit the song rather than the other way round - square pegs in round holes.  I'm not saying that they always get it wrong -  but honestly, a Charleston to the 'Lonely Goat Herd' -  I'm sure it will come complete with Tyrolean Lederhosen a dose of the polka and a big dose of confusion!!!!      Haven't they used the Les Mis one before?   I remember Helen George dancing to a Les Mis song - perhaps it was a different track than this. It all seems a bit serious for an American Smooth - why would you choose a song like this when the American Smooth as a dance epitomises the glamour and smoothness of Hollywood or Broadway if you prefer - such a choice of suitable tracks just made for this kind of night - but what do they do - choose a track from Les Mis  lol!

I'm with D&P re musicals. What's wrong with "Some Enchanted Evening" (Incidentally, one of my very favourite songs)
for a rumba, or even "When it's Summertime in Heidelburg"? ( What could be done to Gaudeamus Igitur? ) and if West Side story is in there, where's "America" for a Samba or Salsa. Musicals equal so may great songs and tunes (and sadly, as D&P says, mainly pre 1960),What's wrong with "People will say we're in Love" from Oklahoma"? sheesh, even Barry Manilo (who I heartlily dislike) did Copacabana which has rhythm. "Surrey with the fringe on top" would American smooth or quickstep and Doris Day's "Quizas" never fails to score. Brigadoon is rich in variety and ......etc,etc,

Just as an aside, if we can't be traditional, how about the theme from Guns of Navarone for a paso? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ewi1LRld5_k

Well, they don't do a new dance in the final (except the show dance) so that means there is only next week to worry about.

If AJ has any sense they will do the Foxtrot.
Joe is rubbish is Latin, so safest to do the A Tango so that he can mainly support Dianne doing most of the leg work ( Wink )
Stacey also weak on Latin but great on character dances so Charleston is the right choice for her and she will storm it
Ashley is an all-rounder and will do any of those dances justice and I will enjoy watching them (even if I won't vote for her)
Faye also needs to keep clear of the Latin (Did she not do a couple of Salsamchas already - so only one left to do, no?) - she would do a beautiful AS, but if she has already done that, then she should go for the AT

Did someone say it's two dances in the semi? If so Lauren is in deep water with foxtrot and a plus 1. If it's just one then she might be ok assuming that AJ can choose foxtrot- do you think the pros can choose now?
Interesting that the big guns have all got AT- crowd pleasers/ vote bait. If it's one dance then surely they won't all be allowed to do AT will they, that would not be good telly from a producer's point of view, although I would love it personally.
Joe's  group of three is interesting- if they are doing two I'm assuming he won't be allowed to do AT and tango, so that means he can't duck a rumba pale
If Stacey does two, if it's AT and Charleston that's practically a bye into the final. 
Ashley as you say will do fab whatever she gets but won't get the votes.

Week 12 dances

Post  Poppetlovestango on Mon Dec 03, 2018 4:34 pm

Hi B4P
They have four dances (two Latin and two Ballroom) left to choose from, your listed three plus these
Faye  you actually named all four so  add to
Lauren             Tango
Joe                 Viennese Waltz
Stacey             Viennese Waltz
Ashley             Paso


It should be a careful considered choice to show off the celeb but its the BBC so it will probably be car crash time.

I think this is one of those scenarios where they won't get much of a  free choice as to what dances they do as the production team will want a 'balanced show'  (and a chance for any manipulation that might be on the cards Twisted Evil ).    I hope they don't take the chance to manipulate it so that Joe doesn't get to  do a rumba - I just want to see B runo not be able to give him a '10'.  Personally I am hoping for an Argentine Tango or two as we haven't seen many this season - I also hope that where possible they have to do a ballroom and Latin  (or a 'serious' one and a 'character' one). I don't think Faye's latin is quite as good as her ballroom but she has obviously got the support of GBP and there's no reason to think she won't get high marks.  As you have all said - Ashley may need the judges again - but who knows??  Anything could happen - it's been that sort of year!

Oh lordy - you're right, it's two dances affraid Which, as you say Alls, means Lauren is in big doo doo. And you have got it on the money with all the others too.

Of all of them, I would prefer not to have Stacey go through (smoke and mirrors by Kevin - she's not as good as it at first appears; and she's getting increasingly annyoying - the head-grabbing of Claud and then An Oscar-worthy monologue after the scores REALLY got on my wick). But given that dance combo she is SO going through.

Bums. No

And tango to Nutbush isn't doing her any favours either..they're trying very hard to get their preferred final 4. Only the public can rain on their parade ....

Not the foxtrot? I would genuinely have loved to have seen Lauren's foxtrot- not because it might have saved her but because I really think I would have loved watching her do it. I love the Foxtrot and I think she owuld have done it justice. Feel robbed No

Well, lots of music tracks I like this week. Whether they'll all suit the dance, I'll wait and see, but an interesting mix.

Yes I agree - Lauren has been stitched up like a kipper! However, as a track I really love 'Rock the Boat' I remember dancing to it at School discos and it's one of those 'feel good' songs for me. Also agree that Stacey and K evin have the best in terms of crowd pleasing music along with their dance selection. Likewise - Ashley and P asha will smash it with their dance combination - whether they are in the DO or not. Not sure about their Paso music but I'm very interested to see what they can do with the dance.

I don't think Joe has particularly lucked out with the music - their Argentine Tango track seems somewhat 'jarring' and personally I think it is a big mistake to have them doing an Argentine Tango up against Faye and Giovanni who easily have a classic track for an AT - Gio will be looking to equal what he did with Debbeh last year (so I hope he doesn't push Faye too much) but I'm sure they'll do something sensational.

An Argentine Tango to 'La Cumparsita' ? What nonsense is this? You can't use genuine traditional tango music for a tango, outrageous. Sack the musical director at once.... lol!

Faye and Gioivanni should comfortably book their passage with their allowance, so (in effect) should Ashley and Pasha and Stacy and Kevin from Grimsby. But.....then again, there are only five in there, and one must catch the last train to San Fernando. Interesting to say the least. The show should be good, the result might not be quite so......we shall see...... Shocked
