Music Monday: Sing, Sing, Sing!

Good morning!

Today we are going to keep it short and sweet, because there isn't much I can say that will better this bad boy video.

The best comment I've heard about this song (you can still see it on the YouTube site) is simply:
"This [song] makes music nowadays sound pathetic."

Get ready for the best five minutes of your day (and I'm not kidding). Boys and girls, it's Benny Goodman, a bandleader otherwise known as "The King Swing" and his tune "Sing, Sing, Sing (With a Swing)":

I don't know about you, but when I hear good music I start to tingle. Let's just say this piece gets my toes full out tickled. When I was young, my Dad used to pop the old Benny Goodman cassette tape into the tape deck in the car and my sibling, my Father and I would all bop along to our destination.

Only now do I realize how invaluable that bopping was.

Thanks Dad, we had a blast with Benny.

Oh, and pop music, better luck next time!

Have you started cursing the ways of the new and modern? Do you want all that noise turned down?

I hate to admit it, but noise makes me crabby. Oh well (better luck next time)!

Moving and grooving like I'm five (all over again),



  1. oh fabulous! LOVE big band, LOVE swing swing swing.

    there is too much noise, i agree. and often lament. as i type from my future-machine, fully aware of the contradictions of loving the old way while fully submersed in the new...
