    Around my area and in the events (that have country dance stuff) I've
    attended, the dance music is really just a small slice of all the country
    music out there (on the radio, etc.). It's only the "danceable" songs
    that have tune and flow that suit the trained dance movements (with
    lots of room for ad-lib) that get played. So, perhaps the likes and
    dislikes are more based on different segments of the big pie, as well
    as the ears of the DJs in geographic region.

    Here are non-country songs that are played for CW2S. I particularly
    like the smooth, soothing, types of music. I'm curious
    how many people would _dislike_ these...

    Sunshine - Steve Azar - 2010


    Top of the World - Carpenters - 1972

    Old style rap, reincarnated.
    Cha Cha , West Coast Swing, Hustle...

    24K Magic - Bruno Mars - 2016


    The top 15 of the current Top 40 list all seem to have a
    similar style/sound, but this one stands separate.

    Many of Bruno Mars's songs have a very retro sound.

    Whoops. A relisting of #496 from Nov 2015. Came across it because of "Better Man."

    The last two years is recent enough. :p

    But I think it has been posted here before.

    Run Away With You

    How about this one?

    Sia Never Give Up Samba 2016



    I hear a strong samba beat in there that could possibly be used... but it sounds like it would fit another dance better. What do you think?

    Duplicate of post #605 from May. :)

    Nice song. Hear it now and then at various places. Just need to beep the
    lyrics for the kiddies (though they know much worse, I'm sure).

    The censored live version...
