Quick! Name a song for me to choreograph to?

It's contemporary dance, so more like a modern version of ballet! Any ideas? I need something that flows, and that is not too fast paced! Thanks!

    Eric Clapton, Layla - the slow more bluesy version.
    Otis Redding Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay.
    REM Losin' my Religion.
    Isaac Hayes version of Walk on By
    Pointer Sisters: Fire, Slow Hand.
    Peggy Lee - You give me fever.
    Beetles: Eleanor Rigby, Yesterday, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
    Stones: Goodbye Ruby Tuesday. Sympathy for the Devil, Painted Black
    Eurythmics - Sweet Dreams

    • For something really different and unique, Dido's Lament' from Dido and Aeneas, an opera by Purcell. Hauntingly beautiful. It's been choreographed before by Mark Morris, in 1989, I think.
      Also from the world of opera, the flower duet from Lákme by Deslibes. You might remember the British Airways ad, or perhaps Catherine Deneuve's seduction of Susan Sarandon in The Hunger?

    • Oops! I hit the submit button by accident. Something that might quite a challenge is the 3rd movement of Sibelius' violin concerto in E.
      Another great source might be the Pieces of Africa CD by Kronos Quartet.
      Speaking of Africa, something off the Paul Simon Graceland CD. Maybe Diamonds on the Souls of Her Shoes.
      Something off any album by Geoffrey Oryema.

    My fav song that I want to choreograph a dance to, Dream Brother-Jeff Buckley. The drums, gahhhh, it's amazing.

      Make a video share it, send it to Riot Games.. became famous for choreographing a League of Legends song... try to use colour similar to the ones in the video above (or better, do some cosplay)

    • @lime_rampljuset Yes, she should do it.

  • Not fast paced?

  • Anything by Blackmore's Night, but Dancer and the Moon and Under the Violet Moon would be awesome.
