Swingtime

Rating: 5.0
Ah, the 'low decadent decade'
when Sally Bowles invented black
stockings and poets thought Germany
shone with ideas worth thinking.

Swing was born - under a new moon;
an articulate child, sassy,
jazzy, slick and slim; America
on song, sashaying across dustbowls
and dancefloors, airwaves and sirens.
