“She sighs, breathing smoke through her lips. "Might as well dance.” ― Genevieve Valentine,

It's no secret I'm a huge fan of electroswing so there's little surprise all things Gatsby appeal to me. I think the music embodies the fun and freedom discussed in this quote by Colleen Moore:

"“They were smart and sophisticated, with an air of independence about them, and so casual about their looks and clothes and manners as to be almost slapdash. I don't know if I realized as soon as I began seeing them that they represented the wave of the future, but I do know I was drawn to them. I shared their restlessness, understood their determination to free themselves of the Victorian shackles of the pre-World War I era and find out for themselves what life was all about.”

This week I'm going back to the 20's, kind of...still with Postmodern Jukebox. I love the fun of these...(original here).

 Weirdly this cover below is how I actually think the song goes...I always get a surprise if I hear the original version (here). 

This is actually a colour photo. With no colour.

As I've discussed many times, when feeling down, you might as well dance.

  6. Lydia,

    I visited you last week and I listened to these song picks. I thought I had left a comment but I guess I forgot. I do that sometimes when making rounds and am sorry for failing to do that. Post Modern Jukebox has a groovy old sound and I like how they put their spin on modern songs with their vintage-style sound from yesteryear. Have boogietastic week, my dear!

  7. Very interesting mewsic, Lydia. We know these songs from the old movies😸Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend🐾😽💞
