    It's Di Sarli's vals, Alma mía, 1940, played about 50% faster than normal ...

    Second is El Adios, no idea which orchestra.
    Third is La Foule, by Edith Piaf, which I think is her cover of Que nadie sepa mi sufrir
    Fourth is Y todavia te quiero, and no idea either which is the orchestra or singer.

    El Adios (the 2nd song) is by Ojos de Tango.

    I'm curious what you dislike about it so much, that you call it terrible.

    I saw nothing growing out of the music: nothing that illuminated the melody, rhythm or the lyric. Just dancing by numbers. Every tango competitor dances the same - the only difference is how well they can do it. SoCal(led) tango, indeed.

    For me, I liked the dancing a lot more than I liked the song. I actually thought they were all pretty good, considering what this was, although I thought two of the couples were better than the third at dancing to the music, IMO.

    I'll be curious to see how this compares to the real US championship that just ended in San Francisco. I'm biased about that one, as I know two couples who are in it.

    Well, we must be made very different: this period of Troilo yields wonderful dancing. The arrangement and performance is matchless.

    Different again: I couldn't be less curious about tango competitions (and If I knew the couples competing, I'd try and talk them out of it). I am only interested in dancing tango in the embrace of a partner, and I'll dance for her, and not the crowd.

    Yes. Different, we are. I like to encourage people to pursue their dreams, (not mine or anyone else's).

    FWIW, IMO just because someone likes the social dance, doesn't mean they can't also like performances or competitions. They are different things, though.
