Carsie Blanton's Baby Can Dance - OFFICIAL VIDEO - YouTube
Nice song, cool lindy in the video (almost all lead and followed apparently, there's no choreography apart from one tiny bit) illustrating that it's not all about the aerials.

The Swinger « Music Machinery
Turn anything into a jive (well, anything in 4/4 anyway): "The Swinger is a bit of python code that takes any song and makes it swing. It does this be taking each beat and time-stretching the first half of each beat while time-shrinking the second half. It has quite a magical effect."

August and Everything After (San Francisco, 2004)
Adam Duritz singing the Counting Crows song whose lyrics are on the album cover of August and Everything After (but which doesn't appear on the album itself). There are a couple of live versions of this: this one's better because the crowd aren't yelling through it.
