Dick’s Daily Pick

If you like German songs and sharp tangos, you’ll enjoy “Pariser Tango” sung by the French artist
Mireille Mathieu. It’s a rollicking good tango on
Superior Dancing 4, and is accompanied by the familiar and beautiful “Hor Mein Lied,
Violetta”, an instrumental by the Bela
Sanders Orchestra.

Today it’s a SAMBA.  It’s COPACABANA, and they

played it on “Dancing with the Stars” this week.  I found a good recording of it on STAND TOGETHER PLEASE by Irvin

Tidswell and His Orchestra, the band that played at

the Blackpool Championships for some years.  This

recording has a clear samba rhythm, at a comfortable

speed of 51 MPM and just the right length of 2:19
