Feast your ears on this:
Now how do you feel?
I know I do.
This song…is my jam.
It’s the jam of my life.
My life jam.
“Wait…didn’t you say that about that 80s hair band…and that Shakira remix, AND that Led Zeppelin song?” I hear you say.
Ah-hem, as I was saying this is my new jam. I can listen to this over and over. It’s so relaxing.
Here’s an hour long version:
The genre is called “Electro Swing!” This song “April Showers” seems to be a more relaxed version. But can I just say, I love this mix of old and new. I heard through the grapevine that this kind of music was featured in Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby
(which was based on one of my least favorite books ever…but it always pulls me in…anyhoo).
“April Showers” which you’re hopefully still listening to was made by a guy named ProleteR who lives in France. Here’s the website: ProleteR Website
Pretty cool stuff.
C’est trés genial. Oh, oui, je parle français. Mais pas habituellement, malheureusement. And it’s possible that my phrasing is off since I don’t think in French often at all.
Here are some more cool Electro Swing tracks:
And here’s a short clip on jazzy swing featuring early Jazz Legends Cab Calloway and the Nicholas Brothers.
(As I’m sure you notice, “scatting” is an early forerunner of rap)
