My least favorite is Swingin' In The Mood by The Brian Setzer Orchestra. It's wrong on sooo many levels.

anything by billy joel.

Hey, "You're Only Human" is pretty swingable; so is "The Longest Time."

Tell Her About It has a kind of 50's groove, too.

I actually like that song, but never considered it a swing song...therefore never thought about it being a bad swing song.

I would nominate Glenn Miller's song, "In the Mood," but it doesn't really swing, so I don't think it would qualify.

Most waltzes are bad swing songs too.

you'd classify it as a "swing" song if you were in atlanta at the time it was released!

There is a 'swing' version of Metallica's 'Enter Sandman.' It sucks huge donkey balls.

Also ANYTHING by Brian Setzer. My mom is constantly buying me his albums cause I like swing so much.

Even the stuff on the Vocaleze CD they did in the style of Lambert, Hendricks and Ross (with at least one of them helping make it)?

My current nemesis is Michael Bubl - Fever. I don't understand how something so awful got on a record in this day and age.

If you think that's bad, check out C line Dion's version.

She also destroys Etta James' At Last.

Really anything by Cherry Poppin' Daddies or the BSO is enough to make me leave the floor. . .

What's the tune with the word brick in the lyrics? I dislike it so much I haven't even learned the name.

The worst (and best) swing song of all time is hands down Jive Bunny's "Swing the Mood"

C'c'c'mon everybody!

The Cha Cha Slide? Turns out the producer of that song is a real-estate fraud enabler!
