Default Masked Ball Music Poll [OPEN]

Masked Ball Music Poll

This year Abunai! will host it's first masked ball.
To make the most out of this event we would like to hear about your own musical preferences so we can hopefully create a night to remember!
Since there are so many different styles to chose from we need your help!
I listed a few music styles below and if your personal preference is not one of the options, please don't hesitate to post it in a comment below.


Poll OPEN


Keep in mind
  • There will be a ballroom workshop at the start of the masked ball, so if you join that you might be able to dance a waltz and possibly another dance to classical ballroom music. Why classic? Anime related songs are not suited for ballroom dancing.
  • The mixed option is for the people who would like to have two or more options combined throughout the evening. For example classical and anime related music. if you vote for that option please leave a comment with your preferred mixed music styles.
  • You can vote for two options max!
  • If there is a tie, there will be a second round of voting!
  • The option with the most vote wins

And last but not least, thanks for voting!

I feel Anime-realted music and Classic music would be best.
There's also those inbetween tunes like:
A diabloic Waltz (Kuroshitsuji OST)
Social Ball (Vampire Knight OST)
Waltz with Adonis (Ouran High school host Club OST)

there's many more, You can start with the Ouran OST as most of them are in a 1/3 (waltz) rythym. Just wanted to srop that in.
Anyway, I'm very excited for the ball! Wow!

Since I voted Other, I need to specify

Classical Ballroom music is just Waltz, Viennese waltz, quickstep, slow fox, ballroom tango & argentine tango.
With Other I meant the Latin-American dances. So the Chacha, Rumba, Quickstep, Mambo, Jive.
And (just because I love the dances) also the Salsa, Bachata, Merengue

I have a list with songs if you need help with it. Just message me!

@ RT those songs would be perfect! I was trying to find them myself but it was harder then I thought it would be ^^; So if you have more songs that would fit both categories please let me know!

@ kaluranda, Latin -American sounds very interesting indeed! it might spice up the evening a bit~

I voted for Classic Ballroom music, so yeah indeed those waltz etc.
Why? I think it's really classy, and it's the best way to wear those glamsy costumes, be in character and re-do that favorite dancing scene.

I think it would be cool to add some anime/game (etc) OST's to it.
For example: "Libera Me" from Gurren Lagann, but than instrumental.
And other great OST's.

Than again, I think it would also be fun to do one dance style each year.
So maybe this year classic, in 2015 salsa, 2016 wrong music/dances :'D
It would be fun! But mixing it all up won't do! :'(

Changing theme's each year might be something to look into, thanks for the idea!

Please leave out music such as the Radetzky March and the Bolero. I have no idea why these pieces were played at the AniProm.

I vote for a mix because I think it would please most people to have a mix of anime related music and calssical music. Not all anime related songs are really dance-able, yet not everyone likes classical music. One could also try to find Japanese songs which have like a waltz-rythm or a tango-rythm, so that you have Japanese/anime related songs which do have a dance-able rythm.
And I think it would be a good idea to mix up tempo songs with slow songs, too...

I think anime songs that are in a classical style would be great and fit the theme perfectly . There are some touhou songs that fit (also remixes), as well as the theme from Howl's Moving Castle.
