 MRP Music Group's Latin 101
(Cuba) Most music historians agree that the Cuban son is the backbone for contemporary salsa and was probably the most popular dance music genre to emerge from Cuba during the early 20th century.
Music historian Vernon Boggs notes that Son possesses numerous African musical influences including syncopated rhythms and melodic line that had no connection to the underlying percussion.
This was distinguished from guitar music intended primarily for dancing such as the Cuban son or guaracha- although in later decades, as musicians began speeding up the rhythm and dancers developed a new dance step, bachata began to be considered dance music as well.

The J. Geils Band was an American music group, formed in 1967 in Worcester, Massachusetts, that had a successful blues-rock/RandB-influenced sound in the 1970s, before moving towards a more pop-influenced sound in the 1980s, which brought them MTV airplay and their 1982 international hit single "Centerfold".
After their initial commercial successes the group seemed destined to be nothing more than a first-rate party band, until the release of the under-appreciated Monkey Island (1977), followed by the more conventional, Sanctuary (1978).
The group's commercial fortunes improved in the early 1980s, first with the humorous Love Stinks, then with their success with the Freeze Frame album which included "Centerfold" (#1 for six weeks on the Billboard Hot 100) and then the title cut (#4).
