Mo's Manic Monday - Swing

Posted: Monday, May 11, 2009 by Travis Cody in

Welcome to another Manic Monday with Morgen. Don't forget to cruise by MM HQ at the Manic Monday blog. Today's theme is Swing.

When I think swing, I think dancing and dance music. There are some perfect dance songs. To me, one of the ultimate dance songs is Sing Sing Sing from Benny Goodman.

This is The Floogees, a Dutch Lindyhop dance troupe.

Don't forget...tonight our Final Four couples compete for your votes in the quest for the fabulous mirror ball trophy!

    Man I loved the dance video and I love that song! Awesome SWING post!

    Have a great week Trav.

  1. Who knew the Dutch were so groovey? I found them on You Tube last year and couldn't believe it.

    Sing, Sing, Sing is definitely one of my favorite swing era tunes.

    I definitely can't think "swing" without thinking Benny Goodman! I so wish I could dance even half that well but alas ... two left feet and weak ankles!

  1. I definitely thought of swing dance and you when I read the theme was "swing" for this week.
