Wanted: Dance Songs

Okay, I'm not out yet but it's getting to the point where I'm running out of ballroom songs. To remedy this, I need your help.

Please comment with:
A) Your favorite ballroom songs.


B) Your favorite songs that might be ballroomable.

Any rhythm is good. If I don't dance it yet, chances are I will in the future (Peabody, anyone?) and I'd like to familiarize myself with the rhythm now, but the basics are always good too. So argnetine tango, east coast swing, nightclub two-step, it all works.

Any style is good. I actually prefer modern pop, but classic songs are good too. I've got collections with "Tennesse Waltz" right alongside "YMCA" so whatever you come up with I'm happy to use.

If you're just posting songs you like that you think might work, or are even borderline (I.e. "Coin-Operated Boy" by the Dresden Dolls. It hides it well with its breaks and bridge but there's a lovely two-step in there if you look for it) share the rhythm if you know it, but don't be shy.

Thank you for your help.
