I wish I could have been alive during the peak of this era of music far better than what they play on the radio stations nowadays.

My Uncle of 99 years young thinks Big Bband music is the only music. He may be right.

I've heard the Airmen of Note several time live playing In the Mood. This studio version seems more stilted, but still swings. If you ever get a chance to see this band, or the US Army Jazz Band, do it. Both are great groups. Quick note on In the Mood: Artie Shaw had first crack at this in 1939 and while he played it on the air a couple of times, never recorded it. The writer of the song, Joe Garland, then took it to Glenn Miller and the rest, as they say, is history.

This is truly one of the great songs of the time, it's excellent to wake up to and even now it is still a great song.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the beat say of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs n 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will come on the screen in big letter. This is so scary because it actually works
