The state of Victoria in Australia has just entered its sixth COVID lockdown. That means us. While we know lockdowns work until the next outbreak, that doesn't make it any easier. It is quite depressing after yesterday being a day of no new COVID cases in our state.
Cheer up Andrew. There is fun to be found on YouTube when you go down a rabbit hole.
I was watching a YT video filmed in the early 20th century featuring Melbourne's cable trams and some electric trams and both being seen at the same time. Way cool. Of course in the 1920s there wasn't sound with film so whoever put up the video to YT added music. The first track was Vera Lynn's We'll Meet Again. The second track I really really liked but I did not know what the song at all. The tram clip is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=so9F_TUfhOw if you are at all interested.
I played the second tune to my phone Shazam from my tablet and Shazam took three seconds to recognise it.
It is a music genre I don't know. I know swing music but not electronic swing music. It is fabulous. The dancer says he dances because he just loves dancing. I love him dancing. I don't think he choreographs his dancing but just puts in his moves. I found him and the music mesmerising. Skip forward to 1.40 if you want to hear vocals.
I went on to listen to and see other electronic swing clips by him and others but je t'adore Sven Otten.
