Ella Fue (She Was the One)

Artist: Fania All-Stars

Album: Rhythm Machine

Song Length: 3:43

George's Thoughts: A funky Latino pop tune. I had never heard of it before seeing it named by several dancers as a popular choice for Cha Cha. Bit of jazz flavoring makes it quite sophisticated. Guest band member Eric Gale's guitar sequence in the opening has a short but clever musical reference to "Twist and Shout" in the chorus. The beat count is just complex enough that experienced dancers will enjoy it but novices may find it difficult.
