Another from my San Diego to Vista commuter days. Great  salsa.

Matthew now plays this on the guitar.  The night we sang it together was memorable.  :  )

I had no idea this was Fergie.  Love her!  Loved this song from the first time I heard it.  I remember dancing a great cha-cha to this with Russell at my friend Marcia’s house.

Another great cha-cha tonight.

Dance a Day Celebration – March 14, 2011 – Day 110 – Last Tango, by Linda Eder

This is actually a fabulous rumba – not a tango at all.  Great song. I first learned of Linda Eder during my days of commuting to Claremont Graduate School in the late ’90s.  I listened to the musical Jekyll and Hyde up and back twice a week for a year and a half.  Linda Eder played Lucy and sang so beautifully, that I bought several of her albums.  This is my favorite from those albums.

Okay.  I am nearly two months behind as I write this.  I have not missed a day of dance celebration, but my posts will be decidedly brief.

Great cha-cha.  Love Steely Dan; love this song.  Reminds me of the days when my kids and I would commute from San Diego to Vista – 4 years for me – 2 for them.  I’ll bet Matthew still remembers every turnoff on I-15 and Hwy. 78 between I-8 and Mar Vista Road.
