A definite VW... I think I have said elsewhere that whenever I hear a song playing, anywhere and everywhere, I instantly see twirling or kicking or swaying or hipping, depending on the tune. As Muave said upthread, I see the choreography in my head....

On the subject of the above video, is it me, or does Kylie look a bit unlike herself? Can't put my finger on it but.... maybe some work too far?

Ref the "Caravans" theme, I'm sure pretty sure I could imagine a very gripping Rumba done to it. Scheherazade desert setting and done barefoot style.  How could it fail? Wink

Grab a Bar of Turkish Delight, quaff a glass of Spanish cream sherry and sit back to let your imagination loose. lol!

Some great dancing in that musical. Yes, that would be a good Charleston choice I think plus the chimney sweep song maybe?

lol! I've been doing a bit of mum-dancing myself to this track since Friday- don't think it matches any dance we've heard of! I'll call it the fans' choice Wink

I'll admit they've never been the same since Jason Orange left  Crying or Very sad

The good news is that he (Jason) bought a place about a mile from where I am currently living (for the winter - hence my written vocalism this evening - I am in the presence of wall to wall wifi - yay!!) and has been seen on more than one occasion having dinner at a local hotel, and asked my friend who was in the queue for ice cream at the cafe across the road to get him an ice cream so that he didn;t have to lose his table (he gave him the money - obvs...).  I tried to espy him last winter but, alas, he stayed in hiding (or maybe he only appears in the summer...)

Going back to the song - it's not my favourite, but I am currently suffering from Choreographitis whereby the minute I hear a song a fully finished routine danced by pros appears before my eyes...  And this song is infectious (like a cold), so I find myself trying to follow an invisible pro and perform the steps myself....

Sorry not sorry!!  Twisted Evil Alongside  a host of others from the  modfather himself Mr Paul Weller, to Adele and Ed Sheeran via the Bee Gees and George Michael, they are among my all time faves. Having a trumpeter as a son means I have also enjoyed a whole lot of brass band and classical music over the years!
I think you would describe my taste in music as small c catholic
Mr Alls agrees with you though Mr T...he says he would rather eat his own eyeballs than listen to Mr Barlow et al Laughing

I have to admit I am far more old school when it comes to seeing musical potential for Strictly Dances. How about this for a Jive:-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQfidTOTsLo

Viennese Waltz:-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yQKDj_V4Gk

Samba perhaps:-

Well, if you are looking for old school for the jive, you can't beat the original, and the best (not only influencing Elvis but also the Beatles and countless others):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McaemUBvGaA

That Tavares song is a cracker!  And yes, totally Samba-tastic (just been doing Samba rolls around my room to it....  Wink )

Like Allsewn my musical taste is incredibly eclectic and includes the very old (Louis Armstrong in the 20s and 30s anybody?) to the very new - this very current one also has me doing some sort of Latin Fusion impression (I can't decide whether I am Salsa-ing or Chax3-ing, and it doesn't matter anyway as I am doing neither in a fashion that Our Shirl would recognise....!):

And C raig also - he was waxing lyrical about him on Friday's ITT.  If he had mentioned one or two of the others as well it would have been fine, but he singled Joe out as the preson who had impressed him the most with his improvement (which is rubbish, as he was held up as surprisingly amazing at Week 1 - not to say he hasn;t improved, but he hasn't had a massive breakthrough, or consistently the high standards of Stacey who is also a non-dancer). Grrrr! scratch

I totally agree. I am a non-conformist. When the judges are clearly overly gushing over a dancer and overly derogatory to others then it turns me right off that dancer they gush over. It is like teachers pets - you just could not abide them. Now Joe, at the start, I never knew too much about him and had an open mind about how I would take to him but the gushing judge remarks and Shirley's molestations are a big turn-off.

This may have been used before but ideal for a Waltz:-

At the risk of being totally boring, the best ( for me) competitor waltz ever on Strictly:

Oh, whatever happened to the Sleeve Wafts(TM) ? I miss them! And the dress was super-princessy, instead of a bit princessy... We need to get back to more glamour!

Glamour - yes, sparkles - yes, silks & satins - yes. Sleeve Wafts - no, no, and thrice no ( sounding like Frankie Howard now) but I absolutely hated those things. Maybe in a waltz or V.Waltz would be ok, but at one point they were being used for most of the dances and getting caught in lifts and armography etc.
