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!
It’s December again, and for those who want to liven up the holidays with some inappropriate Christmas carols, I have six I wrote starting from back in 2009.
