Phil Bourassa

Song:All the Cats Join In

Artist: Benny Goodman & the Pied Pipers

Description: I first heard this song when I was a kid. I remember groovin’ along (as 7 year oldsdo) and enjoying the cartoon video that went along with it. The song was featured in the 1946Disney movie Make Mine Music. The clip from the movie makes me want to go dancing everytime I watch it.

As far as I know there are two version of the song. The first is a regular studio recording and thesecond one is taken directly from the clip. Having seen the clip, I always find it more enjoyabledancing to the movie version with all of the sound effects. My favourite part of the song is whenit changes up at 2:54. It always gets me going.

When I eventually got into Collegiate Shag, Idiscovered it’s a fairly common song among Shag enthusiasts and a lot of fun to dance to.
