Dance Scene   Monday, September 17, 2001 (5:35 p.m.) 

I love this score! especially track 3. But i wonder why they didn't include the song from the dance scene at Raphael's party. That in my opinion is one of the best songs in the whole movie.

Shedding some light on the dance scene   Friday, January 16, 2004 (11:41 p.m.) 

This is a copy of a thread I posted on another site:

The music for the dance sequence is not on the soundtrack simply because it wasn't composed by James Horner (as all the other songs were).

I believe the music for that scene was originally based on a famous folk song from the 1800's called "El Sombrero Blanco".

The closest copy I found to it on Kazaa was a rendition by Enrique Rodriguez called "El Sombrero". The beginning sounds very much like the dance sequence, so I'm pretty sure that's it. There's also one by Los Churumbeles De Espaņa, but I think the one by Rodriguez is more similar. Keep in mind that the folk song is more upbeat -- in the movie version, they slowed it down, added more strings, and made it more dramatic.

I agree that it's a beautiful song, especially combined with the sweeping movements of the camera, and, of course, Antonio & Catherine's dancing.

I've also read that "El Sombrero Blanco" was also used in the 1940 film The Mark of Zorro, where Zorro (Tyrone Power) again dances to it to win the heart of a seņorita. But I haven't seen that film, so I couldn't say for sure.

Hope that answers your question.

I agree this is one of the standout pieces of music from the whole movie, and is a startling omission from the soundtrack. A fundamental flaw that should be put right. Should it make any difference that its not by Horner?

Does anyone know what this piese of music is called and if its on CD or not?
