Random Earworm

I had a Benny Goodman CD years ago that got ripped off.  It had the full version of "Sing Sing Sing" from Carnegie Hall on it, where Gene Krupa wouldn't stop playing.  14 minutes of musical brilliance.  But one of the hidden gems was a short song called "Runnin' Wild".  The Benny Goodman Quartet, with Lionel Hampton on vibes.  I can't keep myself from moving when I hear this song.

That there is music for the sheer joy of making music.
