I love this song for six count swing. I find this song just incessantly whispers “swing kicks” to me. It’s a really bopping song, and I’ve never managed a bouncy lindy so this song never quite feels right to lindy to.
Maybe I’m super strange, but if I’m doing lindy for this song, I really prefer a “Hollywood” style as Richard Powers calls it, where the follow travels back and forth in an imaginary slot and the lead gets out of her way. Maybe this song would work for west coast swing and that’s why I get that desire? I don’t know, I very rarely dance west coast swing, so I am terrible at picking out the music for it.
This song is also special to me because in my elementary school there was this one time that we did a karaoke event to celebrate something or other. I don’t remember, I was in like 4th or 5th grade at the time. But the MC for the event sang this song and was rocking out and just having so much fun. It was the first time I’d heard the song and I spent hours and hours after school trying to find it at the library. (Believe it or not, this was back before youtube got big on music video).
