Music to tickle your fancy is ready to entertain you. Hopefully you are going to like it. It might be not as you think, the rhythm that you can easily find around the world. If you like it, perhaps most people will say you start to become old fashioned.

What music you like anyway? If you were born in Germany you might like classic. You come from Jamaica probably you like Reggae and if Indonesia is your mother tongue, dangdut probably appeals to you. And if I say the latter, the one to tickle your fancy better than anything else, you might disagree with me. It's subjective and we are not talking things locally, are we?

To talk further about dangdut we might refer it to Indian or Arabic ttaditional music. None, perhaps to tickle your fancy. As the world develops and gives options, there are a lot of  music genre people can enjoy. When it comes to conservative taste, surely it will be left behind. However, dangdut might present as a bridge between traditional and modern, between old-fashioned and progressive and between like and dislike.

Is dangdut a pice of unique music to to tickle your fancy? What is dangdut anyway? Dangdut is a genre of Indonesian popular music that is partly derived from Hindustani,Malay, and Arabic musics.

Okay now, here are the reasons to regard dangdut as a piece of music to tickle your fancy. It can be mixed or collaborate with all of music around the world. It can spoof Bon Jovi or Metalicca's songs, it can make disco, hiphop, or rock sound more lively. The flute, saxophone or trumpet all are nice to listen to when mixed together with dangdut.

More unique about it is that most Indonesians to where dangdut belongs, despite consider this as old fashioned or second class music--if asked whether you like it or no, many will hypocrately say no. The thing to tickle your fancy is that they cannot resist singing or dancing at a gathering event, wedding ceremony and so on.

The self-acclaimed king of Dangdut Rhoma Irama has got doctoral degree for his music dedication and innovation. Some international people have also received dangdut as entertaining music. Different context to tickle everyone's fancy is that coming along with music usually are beautiful singers dressed in miniskirt and they lead men to wild fantasy. In Indonesia many artists become the mistress of the officials and subject to gossip to people.

Well, that's all for today, ladies and gentlemen, let's shake your body with any music you like. If you like to try dangdut please don't wear miniskirt while you plan to grow your beard. That's not the proper way to tickle everyone's fancy. Lol.
