Song: Dancin' The Boogie
Artist: Silvan Zingg





This recording is from 2004, and it's a composition by the performer, Silvan Zingg. So it might not even be 20 years old.

But it's nostalgic just the same, because it is so representative of the music of the boogie-woogie era.

And it's just a lot of fun to listen to and watch. The dancers are so accomplished that they do justice to the fantastic composition and playing skills of Mr. Zingg.


Oh to move like that. Fabulous.

Some of my friends used to have LP collections that consisted of lots of "Greatest Hits" and "Best Of" albums. I had a few of those, but I mostly concentrated on just the "normal" albums.

And when you do that, you find that some bands will produce some clunker songs that are just there to fill out the album.

But occasionally, some bands are able to put albums that don't have any clunkers on them. I could listen to either side of that first MTB album any time, and enjoy every note.

The song "My Jesus Told Me So" is another deep cut from that album that is just about perfect. And if there's a higher energy song than "Ramblin'" I'd like to know about it.



Edit: Just listened to "Can't You See" for the Nth time (where N is smaller than Graham's Number, but not by much :) ). I never get tired of it.

Ramblin' - yes, one high energy tune for sure. But I'll give you one that'll match it - 24 Hours at a Time, live version, from the Tucker Boys "Where We All Belong" double album.

Love Tommy Caldwell introducing Charlie Daniels at the very beginning:

I thought ABBA was the fluffiest, worst band I ever heard back when they were megapopular, but I ran across this cover of Dancing Queen and it illustrates the incredibly
effortless hooks used by that band and the Swedish pop formula which became wildly influential. Whatever, this guy is incredible.
