Swing songs with Tango influences ( or vice versa)

A dance i DJ has a mix crowd of lindy hoppers and tango dancers. the organizer asked me if there are any songs that would work for both styles ( she wants to do a mini showcase). any recommendations?

I've gotten feedback from the hardcore jank lovers here that they prefer early Basie to dance to - especially for fast lindy - I put on Jumpin' at the Woodside from Live at the Sands and was told later it was a lot harder to dance to than earlier versions of this song by Basie.

I live in NYC. Here we had a little problem with most of our venue's closing (for whatever reason). Now we have a few choices: there are 2 DJ dances, there is a Friday night dance to live music and there is Monday night at luci's. I choose to attend the DJ nights for the following reason.
