Saturday video break: In The Mood

Still one of my favorite songs, from one of my favorite bands:

As a sax player who was in jazz band in high school, Glenn Miller was my first musical love. And let me tell you, the sax part for that song is a killer. But it feels amazing when you get it right.

That song has words, you know. Here are the Andrews Sisters singing them:

The commenters on that video seem to prefer a faster version that the Andrewses did. I like this one just fine. It’s complex enough that any faster a tempo would run the risk of turning it into mush. But if you want to hear it sped up, here are the Harvard Krokodiloes doing an a capella version:

I think both Glenn Miller and all three Andrews Sisters would respect that. What’s your favorite rendition?
