Please note - where we give a listing of music, it is only as a guide.
These tracks may be not in sequence, or may drift out of sequence, or may not be
long enough to be used at a normal sequence dancing venue. Inventors may be
using tracks to suit the choreography, and to cover two or three sequences at most,
as required by the competition rules. Note particularly that many "Blackpool"
competition or championship tracks last only 2 minutes or less, all that is
required by Ballroom and Latin competition rules.
