"Swingtown" as written by and Steve Miller Chris Mccarty....
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Come on and dance, come on and dance
Let's make some romance
You know the night is fallin' and the music's callin'
And we've got to get down to Swingtown

We've been workin' so hard
We've been workin' so hard
Come on baby, come on baby, let's dance
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon

Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Come on and dance, come on and dance
We may not get another chance
You know the night is fallin' and the music's callin'
And we've got to get down to Swingtown

    General CommentI have to add something here because no one has said anything about "Swingtown" yet. I think this was my very first favorite song ever. When I was really little my dad used to play the 45 for me and I would dance along to it. I remember spinning in a circle to watch my dress billow out.

    Anyway, it's a great, fun song. Every time I happen upon it on the radio I listen to the whole thing. There isn't much meaning here, obviously; it's just a happy song about having good times. I love the immediately recognizable opening, the bassline, the groove, the instrumental section in the last third (with the kind of cheesy but fun drumming), and then the fade at the end.

    General CommentThis is an upbeat, romantic song that reminds me of the U.S. after WW2 when the troops were coming home. I guess I connect the word swingtown to swing music which was prevalent during the 40's. The man seems to be trying to convince his girlfriend / wife that the hard work and deprivation of war is over, and now is the time to go party.
