For many years I taught belly dance classes. I carefully chose music that I enjoyed and that helped to support my dance needs. I crafted dance class "sets" for each of my favorite topics, and I was always happy to give my student the current class playlist, so they could buy the music I used. One of the important themes in my class is dance to the same music until you've mastered the music, feel the music, or are driven mad by it.
I'm taking my own advice, and I'm going to do what I have always told my students, dance to the same music until I really know it. My first set is made of two songs:
Amulet (2005 edit) (2:40) by Natacha Atlas
Faddah (8min) by Hossam Ramzy
I'm going to dance to this every day until I Feb 1 - fun!
