So, I’ve posted before about FI and I’s difficulty picking a first dance song. Well, today one of our local dance studios held a free “Taste of Everything” dance class, 45 minutes each of salsa, country/western, and ballroom dancing, to see if you like it and promote their classes. After learning these new dances, we came home and went through our list of songs, seeing what is or is not do-able and which we like most. We narrowed it all down to three songs and I’d like your opinion on which would be best.
Depending on the pricing, we’re going to take some private lessons at the studio. We aren’t looking to choreograph, more to find out what works best for the song we choose and how to combine various steps and make it our own.
Anyways, I include that just so it’s clear we’ll be getting help working out the dancing, we just need to find a song. The options are,:
I’m not a big fan of “Meant to Be,” but FI rather likes it. I just don’t like the long intro. If we could cut it, it’d be great. However, FI does like the long intro. We both love the last two though. Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” is FI and I’s song, but Anka’s cover is easier to dance to. We’re also massive Who-vians and love just how powerful this piece is in the context of the show. On top of that, I’m a huge choral nerd and love how epic the voices are.
So, I’d really appreciate an outside perspective. They’re all great songs and we like them all. We just need help choosing.
