Radio XLVIII, side A, track 10: “Swing The Mood” by Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers

Jive Bunny - Swing The MoodOh, Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers, I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say that I’ve listened to this song a hundred million times.  I’ve been saying that I’ve realized that this was the best Hot New Music Hour I ever taped, and this track confirms it.  This song is the culmination of awesome that the whole hour had been building to and I was immediately in love.  Long before song mash-ups were a thing, you guys had already mastered the mix, Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers.  And maybe it speaks to living in a simpler time, or maybe it’s just nostalgia talking, but how great was it that a song consisting of “oldies” from several decades before could become a new pop hit?  And I’ll tell you something, Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers, I actually didn’t know that you guys were also sampling Glenn Miller.  I thought all the big band music was your own stuff and you were supplementing it with classic rock tunes.  Sorry, Glenn Miller.  There’s not really much else to say about this song other than “Push Play again, please”, which I pretty much told myself and still tell myself every time this track ends.  I love you, Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers.

You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog

Cryin’ all the time

You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog

Cryin’ all the time

Shake shake shake shake
Rattle and roll

Well’a bless’a my soul, what’s’a wrong with me

I’m itchin’ like a man on a fuzzy tree

Friends say I’m actin’ wild as a bug, I’m in love

I’m all shook up

W-w-w-warden threw a party in the county jail

Prison band was there and they began ta wail

The band was jumpin’ and the joint began ta swing

Ya should’a heard those knocked-out jailbirds sing, let’s rock

Everybody let’s rock

Everybody in the whole cell block

Was dancin’ to the jailhouse rock

Bahhh bahhh bahhh bahhh
Bahhh bahhh bahhh bahhh
Bahhh bahhh bahhh bahhh
Bahhh bahhh bahhh bahhh at the hop
Hop
Hop hop hop
W-w-wop wop bop a loo ma
W-wop bop a loo ma
W-wop bop a loo ma
Lom bop bop
