I’m American and my Fiance is Mexican. We plan to pick two songs for our first dance – start with mine and then “fade” into his – and still keep it under 4 minutes. I want to start with “Everything I Do, I Do it For You” by Bryan Adams. He can’t seem to find anything he wants though. His style of music is called Cumbia (I think). Does anyone know some good first dance songs for his half?
I’m not sure if you’re aware of this -but ‘cumbia’ style of song/dance is more fast paced. Does he want something in Spanish? Why doens’t he go for a ‘bolero’ song-a little something more romantic. If he’s set on ‘cumbia’. i would suggest taking dance lessons as well
I just learned that I got his style of dance wrong. He likes something called “sapatiado” – hopefully I spelled that right. The stuff I hear him listen to is kind of fast paced I think, and I have no clue how to dance to any Mexican music, not even traditional salsa.
Oh man, I didn’t even think about learning to dance to his music! I’m screwed!
Actually I like Aventura and the bachata style quite a bit. I bought Aventura’s latest CD a few months ago just before they started taking over the radio!
“Eres” sounds like a very nice song. However it doesn’t sound like the style I hear my Fiance listen to. I’ll have to ask him exactly how to spell “sapatiado” and maybe get some examples of bands he likes to get the search started.
Ha! Jen, that’s Banda! You will definitely need to learn how to dance La Quebadrita for that… direct translation…the breaking dance because your partner tosses you and bends you back to the point of breaking your back..lol
Not the most romantic songs but a ton of fun to jump around to even if you don’t have any pro moves.
Well if he likes Vicente Fernandez, why not try Hermoso Cariño or Te Presumo by Banda El Recodo.My 3rd recommendation doesn’t fall within the music that he likes but it doesn’t hurt, it’s a song called-Tu de que vas by Franco de Vita. They are all slow dances so no dance lessons would be needed. If I can think of more I’ll let you know.
