It's a Mambo—in the sense that "Mambo Italiano" or "Papa Loves Mambo" is a Mambo. It is possible to dance a Mambo to its rhythm. It just isn't a very good one.

I do understand, to some degree, why people choose these types of songs for "routines "/ comps etc. ; the general audiences at comps/recitals, are more familiar with the pop genre , and back when, the availability of authentic latin, was not as easy to come by as it is in todays world.

I also believe its worth noting that, the Prof. ranks music, has improved immensely in recent times .

Cugat also is a poss.
