Dancing to Merengue songs is not for the physically challenged and a merengue dance party should come equipped with towels for the guests that can't resist dancing every number. I have to admit that this great playlist has been tamped down a bit making it music that even people over 30 can dance to! Dominican Los Toros Band used to boast Hector Acosta as the lead on their vocals until Acosta decided to go solo; lately they've been associated more with bachata than merengue although their music has always been a kaleidescope of Dominican music performed with great vocals. Merengue, like most genres, is changing with the addition of electronic elements, sped-up tempos and fusion with other forms.

Every time this song comes on a big smile comes on my face, and I want to get up and dance! That feeling if I could capture it, that joy would be what I want people to remember when I leave this Earth! The song For those non-English speaking basically speaks of this gardener who tries to win the heart of his love by planting different flowers for her in his garden, and telling her of how he will make her fall for him eventually. The song breaks up into a horribly mispronounced English rap that just ads to the coolness of this song.
