Saturday tunes (with a swing)

I'm not sure any other pop music genre has one song that defines it quite the way that "Sing, Sing, Sing (with a Swing)" symbolizes Swing/Big Band music.

Clocking in at around 8 minutes, "Sing" took up both sides of a standard 78rpm record.

Written by Louis Prima, but basically owned by Benny Goodman (clarinet), Henry James (trumpet), and Gene Krupa (drums). Love it.
