    Daft Punk - Lose Yourself to Dance
    The new song, been on the MTVs and maybe the radio

    Obviously could Hustle to it, but it'd be kinda slow. I feel like maybe it's also a foxtrot beat? What do you guys think? I would like to do some slower dance to it

    Great tune, and if you haven't ever heard of Nile Rogers, I suggest you Google the name. He is arguably the most influential person in music living today.

    I'd do West Coast Swing to that song.

    Yeah, tempo is right for WCS but it's really boring to dance on, no breaks, no accents, everything repeats forever. But could be used in some beginners class for practicing those basic moves

    Speaking frankly, none. You cannot judge only by the speed or tempo. Quotations, orchestration, citations are as important. It's fusion music with a hint of 70s retro sound in it. So hustle would fit, but boogaloo would also do. I find for wcs dynamics and plasticity are missing.

    Lol, what? The intention was for you to google and listen to the song, and then judge by that

    It's really on the slow end for sling hustle, though I agree that it's more of a disco character than a west coast swing character.

    Instructional disco/ hustle... for as long as the teacher can stand using it.

    I'd do hustle. I like slow hustle.

    I wouldn't worry about the confines of ballroom dancing. I'd do this!

    Or the couples starting at 1:54. Seriously, this song is so funky-why constrain it to Ballroom Dancing. Side Note- I'm a big fan of Nile Rodgers. When I first heard this song I thought "wow, that sounds like Chic!"....oy!:dancingbanana: No wonder.
