Note: this is long music. If played all the way through, it comes to 10 walls of dance and finishes beautifully at the end of the 10th rotation. However, that’s a REALLY long time for one dance so I suggest having your DJ fade out just after the tag (at about 4:08). I was unable to find this song in a shorter version.
