I would have loved to have been at one of those fun old time dances, I think these were played during the WWII years. The tempo is so kool, it makes me wanna shake my booty I had to throw that one in there, I couldn't help myself. Have you heard this before? Does it make ya wanna dance? So much for cats not liking water, seems Boobear likes it just fine
Tex Beneke and the Glenn Miller Orchestra perform the jazz classic: "In The Mood" (1946) This video is really good, and apparently on DVD now: http://www.cdu...

That tune is timeless. I'm glad that kids are playing it these days.

That music is a bit before my time, I prefer classic rock and roll. And I stink at dancing lol.

@rebelann I must admit I'm pretty narrow minded when it comes to music, I don't like big band, and hate country music. Probably don't like country because my dad played it all the time.

I had a cat that use to do that and then lick the water off her paw. It was so cute. I have heard this before and yes definitely makes you want to dance. The youth orchestra that my granddaughter is in plays this song.

Oh, those Swing Time Tunes! I love listening to them and watching the dancers!
I have loved this song for a long time & I am also a fan of swing dancing so I decided to combine the two. I love that the song & the dancing is very upbeat,...

I can do some of it if I could get the right partner but at my age I couldn't go quite as fast as they did back then @Shellyann36 I'd pull a muscle or pee in my pants.

@rebelann I agree. The beats of the tune will make the body moves unintentionally.

If I danced like that for at least a couple or more hours a day I'd probably be a whole lot thinner and more energetic .... uh oh, I'd have to buy more food cuz I'd get hungrier more often. Ok, my brain will lose a little weight by me dreamin of it

All the musics of Glenn Miller Orchestra were great, I have many old vinyls with the WWII songs.
