The Swing Of Things

Jonathan Coulton leads a music parody game alongside Ophira Eisenberg on <em>Ask Me Another</em> at the Bell House in Brooklyn, New York.

Revisit the New Jack Swing, you know, that musical genre trend of the mid-1980's to the early-'90s that fused R&B with jazz, soul, and hip-hop. In this music parody game, songs from the New Jack Swing movement are rewritten about things that very literally swing — or can be swung.

Heard on Justin Long And Marina Franklin: Franklin My Dear, I Don't Give A Long.
