Electronic Swing

Normally, I extremely dislike commercials and mute them at best or change channels. Have heard a few lately that struck my fancy because of the background music. One in particular had a track I remembered, but could not recall the artist. As usual, I scoured the web to find out more information.

It was Parov Stelar, one of my new besties. His musical style is called Electronic Swing. The first YouTube video I remember from him 'All Night', complete with amazing dancing LINK.

Here is one with vocals from singer Cleo Panther (I think I love her) 'Nobody's Fool'  LINK.

Here is one for the oldies, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dancing to Parov's 'Booty Swing', with samples from 'Oriental Swing' LINK and a rousing live version LINK. These will get your toes a tappin.

Fred Astaire Bonus

Speaking of Ginger, this YouTube shows the how the dance scene where Fred dances up the walls and on the ceiling is done. Interesting Hollywood magic explained. LINK - and a bonus with Fred, his ladies, and the Bee Gees song LINK .
