Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #144 - Swingy Swing Swing


Featuring Donkey Kong Country and some jazz music.

Greetings fellw game music lovers,

unfortunatly, after reexamining the Battletoads samples I came to the conclusion they aren't that good so I decided to skip directly to Donkey Kong Country (1994). Our song of interest is the first level song "Island Swing" which, after a lavish tribal drum introduction, goes into this:

The title of the song is pretty much a dead giveaway as it's likely supposed to be classic flaming jazz from the early 20th century in emulation of Kondos style. An example of what I mean:

The Ames Brothers - The Naughty Lady Of Shady Lane (1955):

Ella Jenkins - A new Day's Coming Soon (before 1977):

Next week probably some more small stuff.

Phil out.
