Listen and Download the Best Swing Music
It seems that the era of the 1930's and 40's must have been one of the most fun times in the history of music. Too bad Grammy's weren't around that time, because it would have been interesting to see all of those jazz greats get their much deserved awards. For those during that era that went to the different dances and experienced all the wonderful things we believe it just had to be incredible to hear those big bands play live in those days. Well, unfortunately we aren't still in those times just for the musical experience. However, many of us still just love to listen to some great swing music now and then to put our mind back in a time where there were so many happy dancers with smiles on their faces as they enjoyed the true big band sound in person.
What we are trying to do is make this article something like our own kind of time machine. As you listen to the music we have on our playlist here, transport your mind back to the 1930's and imagine a time where you would have been able to hear these things in person. Also, if you like, you can download some of these songs to your playlist and keep them handy. Music can often serve as a time machine of sorts for those times you want to make a mental escape and just travel to a different time and place. We invite you now to escape with us to the 1930's and hop into some swing music with us now. Enjoy this awesome swing music we have complied for you.

All of these songs that are in this playlist are definitely in a time period all their own. We haven't been able to hear these classics outside of their time period in this way since the time of their first release. There have been many imitators of great classic swing music, but nobody has been able to effectively recreate these moments in history only done by the original artists. Will music return to such days where classic music is created and last more than a decade or two? Who knows? At least for now, we can be grateful for the wonders of the internet that have brought music.
We would like to take this last moment to thank you for stopping in and reviewing our list of swing music classics that take us all back to a different time. We hope that as you have enjoyed the music you have downloaded the ones that have meant so much to you.
