Re: Argentine tango wedding song Posted by belleofyourball 8/28/2010 12:22:00 AM
Argentine doesn't lend itself so easily to inspirationally Carpenter's Top of the World themed wedding dances. It tends to be more a dance of passion, frustration, lust. I love to dance tango but a wailing bandoneon...okay that is my diatribe.
I am going to assume you don't know Tango Vals but if you do Gotan has a beautiful and properly wedding(y) song on their new album. It's called Erase una vez. Vals dancers and teachers are a little bit rare in the US anyway.
Two others that are pretty and to the tango style I'm guessing you are looking for are Otra Luna by Narcotango and Celos which is a standard and done by many different groups in many styles but one of the prettiest I've ever heard across the genre.
If you want to go with the old world Metrotango has cleaned up and remixed a Gardel standard called Anclao'En Paris and it has a haunting beauty that most wedding guests would like...that way you get something old and something new.
