What cha cha (cha) song would make a great soundtrack to a choreographed, comedic entrance?

Asked by kevbo (25603points) October 6th, 2010

I’m looking for music to fit the entrance of characters known as “The Holy Weavers” for a play based on an adaptation of “The Emperor’s New Clothes.” The moment needs to be funny to ridiculous. The script calls for a motown song, but I think a cha cha would work better.

More specifically, I want the sound to be kind of 60s, like Mad Men or a less serious version of Ocean’s Eleven or the Enzyte commercials that feature Bob (yes, I know that’s not a cha cha). Something maybe Austin Powers would dance to or something that you’d see in an old Bugs Bunny cartoon. This wouldn’t be too bad if it didn’t have the contemporary drum beat and maybe had more pauses.

Also, I think it would be better if it were pure instrumental.

Thanks!

I once heard ‘Tea for Two’ played in a Cha (3) beat; seemed to work well.
Also like Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White, however that could be a rumba, don’t
know for sure…

Those are really good, but the sound is a little dated for what I’m looking for. I do appreciate your response though (thanks!!!!).

I might go with something on this album. Anyway, that’s kind of the sound I’m thinking of. Less horns and more keyboard.
