Thread Name: tune names - may I vent?
Subject: RE: tune names - may I vent?
All our dances are one-off. One dance is done to one tune. I wish we had a repertoire of easy dances which people could get under their belts so they can relax more. But our leaders don't want to make it easy.
So, Peter, to answer your question, if the tune has a name, call the unique dance to it by the same name. If you compose a dance for the existing tune "Bruxa", call it "Bruxa."
Here are a few illogical pairings which I would rather not bother with:
Autumn in Amherst to the Red Star Line
Alice to Siciliano
General Grooviness to March for Warren
and if you like twee, The Chocolate Equation, danced to a tune called 72%
Meanwhile, I'm dealing with certain fellow musicians who can barely find the rehearsal spot, much less organize their music.
