For a tune called “Sing Sing Sing”, there’s a distinct lack of singing in it. While the original version of this song featured lyrics, the more famous rendition by Benny Goodman/Gene Krupa is the indelible epitome of swing. This remix keeps the 30s feel, but strips back the instrumentation and composition a little bit while increasing the tempo, granting it just a hint of mystique, as well as giving the somewhat overplayed original a new lease of life. It’s still every bit as swingin’ as the original version, that’s for sure!
