This fall, I started to learn swing dancing, Lindy Hop more specifically. I am absolutely loving it, but not just for the dancing. The music is also absolutely phenomenal. I knew of some of the songs played before, but I’ve also not heard many, so I am also engaged in finding good music I had never heard. It was during one of these sessions to build my Swing play list on Spotify that I found this awesome gem called the Oriental Swing that’s a little racist, but totally acceptable to me (an Asian) considering it was done in 1938. :-)
I heard this song for the first time today, Donna the Prima Donna by Dion and the Del-Satins. They sure don’t write’em or sing’em like they used to!
I wanna get a group together and learn this!
I heard this song for the first time today… and it was love at first verse.
Sure, it’s cheesy, but you know, when you’re in love, it ain’t gonna sound cheesy!
Rain breaks at this year’s French Open tennis tournament have seen some of the best moments of the tournament so far! And it has nothing to do with tennis. However, it’s definitely entertaining, and that’s why I’m calling it tennistainment.
Start with this dance battle between Gael Monfils and Laurent Lokoli!
