    Tabla Competition is only 3:09, but the rhythm is consistent throughout.

    The Class Lists section of BellydanceDownloads.com has great suggestions for drills.

    Not that I recommend this on a daily basis, but I couldn't get off my lazy duff the other night, so I motivated myself by doing my shimmy drills to Lady Gaga

    Most of the time, I actually like some of that repetitive "Gay Disco" techno BD music because it has a good steady beat for sustaining a shimmy. Anything by Turbo Tabla, Harem or Said Mrad is good brainless music that's fun to shimmy to before moving onto more serious tunes!

    Not Middle Eastern, but ideal for the purpose nevertheless: Hip Shake, by the Rolling Stones.
    Rosette

    Suhaila's Remix CD is the BEST for drills. Zill drills, shimmy drills - it has five songs of various speeds, ranging from 5 minutes to 20 minutes, each with their own steady beat. I use Stamina (20 minutes) for shimmy drills all the time.

    I use "Miserlou" and "Hava Nagila" by Dick Dale in my beginning classes, they always make me smile and students get a kick out of them, too.

    I also like Pulse of the Sphinx by the Henkesh Brothers:

    Ooh check out these gems - all very high energy with a consistent pace

    Telegrafin Telleri by Turbo Tabla from the Belly and the Beat
    Pyscho Dancer & Oriental Fire by DJ Kambo from Arabian Spices are very nice
    Mazamir by Body Shock from The Bellydance Project
    Sands of Time by Ametrine from Desert Starlight

    Just a few off the top of my head :)

    Re: Shimmy Drill Songs

    These are some of my faves:

    1) "Chicky" by Oojami
    2) "Desert Euphoria" by Giacomo Bondi
    3) "Move - Oriental Remix" by Said M'rad
    4) "Cedars of Lebanon" by Jef Stott

    I believe 2 & 4 are on the Electric Oasis 2 album, which I know you can download through amazon.com - excellent album all around!!

    I hope that helps! :)
