    What's this song called?

    If you jump to 4 minutes 55, they start playing some song:

    Code:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=294&v=naVPICuZL0Y
    I can't remember the name of it, my lass thinks it's 'Putting on the Ritz' by Fred Astaire, but I think she's wrong and it doesn't sound like that.

    Cheers.

    Go to youtube and compare both songs though - they don't sound the same to me?

    That's not Jazz dude, it's swing music - jazz is totally different (and excruciating to listen to :-)).

    I despise heavy metal music - all that screaming and people sounding like they are possessed by demons and stuff - that grates my sh*t, but some people love it - go figure???

    Anyway, sorted now - that was bugging me all day trying to get the name of that song :-), now I can sleep soundly tonight!

    @saintomer1866
    I love the music in this song (even though it's German), but the actual music itself:

    What would you class that as?

    Interesting result, as I too thought it was Putting on the Ritz - even Shazam couldn't decipher it either! lol!!
    Suppose 42nd Street is from same era or Swing as has been said - used to get back to back old mono films on tv containing all this, but rarely nowadays it seems!

    42nd Street:-

    Iím not a big fan of jazz or swing but love rock, I think itís great that we all like different types of music. But working on building site with everybody listening to different radio stations as loud as possible is excruciating. I wonít listen to radio one though. Just my tuppence. Chippy.

    No hint in the caption either:
    Japanese women's band~ It's amazing.

    You could try emailing: jerry ming

    I suspect it is a Chinese marching tune (may well have been a rip-off of a western tune.)
