This is not the first time that I have noticed this. It seems often that when a interesting song appears in one performance, all of a sudden you will find a number of couples choosing the same song!? The song in question is “Tu Corazon”, by Donato Racciatti’s orchestra.
I first heard of this song from the Seoul performance (May 2009, number 2 below). Here are three couples offering their interpretations to the same song – take, for example, the different treatments at around the 1:50-2:00 mark. The first one is perhaps more “conventional”, the next two extremely playful, and the final softer and more romantic. That is part of the reason why I like tango, because the same piece of music can sometimes trigger a range of musical expressions.
Are there more examples using this song?
* Actually I prefer their performance at Tangocool which I have already posted here but didn’t want to repeat the same clip. I guess perhaps they were a little overawed by the occasion at Sunderland!? To be fair, this seemed more like an impromptu guest appearance rather than a pre-arranged performance.
* These performances were roughly two weeks apart but sufficiently different.
