Tango is belly rubbing music

american-bandstand-bwIf you were a teenager in the 1960s as I was, you probably danced to belly rubbing music at a sock hop or prom.  It was the slow music you liked with a special partner.  It was easy.  Boys got to hold girls in their arms and didn’t have to know any steps to do it.  It was all about moving together in an embrace.

I’d like to imagine what would have happened if they played tangos for American teenagers in those days.  After all, tango is belly rubbing music.
