Jive Bunny - Swing The Mood (1989)

Well, you either love them or hate them, but Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers spent five weeks at the top of the UK singles chart with Swing The Mood during July and August 1989. In fact, the song went on to become the second best-selling single of '89, beaten only by Ride On Time by Black Box.

The song features a medley of rock and roll hits by artists such as Glenn Miller, Bill Haley and his Comets, Little Richard, Chubby Checker, Eddie Cochran, Elvis and The Everly Brothers. Jive Bunny are from Rotherham in Yorkshire (UK) and followed in the footsteps of Gerry and The Pacemakers and Frankie Goes To Hollywood to become only the third chart act to have three No.1 singles from their first three releases! The other two #1's were That's What I Like and Let's Party.

Jive Bunny was slated by the critics, of course, but the British record-buying public seemed to have a soft spot for the furry DJ. This stuff is guaranteed to get a party going, at least, or maybe it will get everyone going quite literally - straight out the nearest exit!
