    I'd vote for including 2 chords; regardless of various objections, it still 
    seems to be standard practice to play them, and most dancers are used to them. 
     If anyone really objects to two chords they can simply copy the track and 
    chop the first chord off; easily done with various computer audio editing 
    programs. -Steve
