 Post subject: Modern Songs that Swing?

Ok, my club occasionally does modern nights, where we step away from the oldies after hours and put on non-swing music that's good to dance to. So, my question is, who can suggest me modern songs that swing or modern songs that don't swing but are swing-danceable. Examples would be Mambo no. 5 and The Middle (Jimmy Eat World).

Can you help me think of others?

Trying to wrap my brain around songs that are over a decade old being called "modern."

Our scene has a rather large modern influence and play quite a few of these (heresy, yes I know). My favorites right now:

Stronger - Rebecca Loebe (Bal) (the Youtube versions are not good representations)
Ain't Nothing Wrong With That - Robert Randolph
Let's Do It - Alanis Morissette
If You Seek Amy - Britney Spears
Right Round - Flo Rida
Take Me Back - Taio Cruz

Let's revive this thread! :)

I recently played 'Gold On The Ceiling' by The Black Keys at a Lindy Hop party and turned the volume up a bit. The crowd went crazy :D

You mean the Cole Porter song? It's been covered by tons of people, of course. :)

I would love to have this thread revived. I played "Run" By Tiggs Da Author last night as my last song. Every person got up to dance. Even ones that didn't have partners. I would love to have a list of 'alternative' or 'different' songs to throw into the mix towards the end of the night.
