While you may be right in a way (I like my Rumbas and Cha-Chas to be Latin music, not something else with approximately the right rhythm), craiguerabbitry said at the beginning that almost the only available music where he lives is country music. So he would like to be able to answer the question "Can you name a Rumba and I'll play it?" in terms that will be of use to him.

A former instructor in the New Orleans area lived in a small town 40 miles from New Orleans. He used to go out to the local clubs and have fun dancing to what was available there--not the music you hear at Blackpool!

You work for 4 days and then have a day off. Your best friend works for 5 days and then has a day off. How many days after you had a day off together will you have another day off together?"
Can someone please explain how I do this?

Carrie Underwood - Cowboy Cassanova WEST COAST

Steve Holy - "Come on Rain" is a good Rumba

There are lots of good country waltzes that are very good. My favorite is "Slow Dance" by Michael Peterson. "Sandy's Song" by Dolly Parton is excellent also, but a trifle slow. "I See It Now" by Tracy Lawrence is very good also.

There are also a fair number of good country swings. I recall "Watermelon Crawl" by Tracy Byrd in particular.

Good country numbers for many ballroom dances are hard to come by, partly because country-specific dances like Texas Two Step take up much of the "musical space" that would be Foxtrot, Quickstep, etc. Also, Tango is a country dance, - just the wrong country. Good luck, hope this helps!
