Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

If you were at a nightclub that played dieselpunk and electroswing music, what song would get you up and dancing as soon as you heard it?

Caravan Palace, Dragons pretty much always gets me.  But I would guess you want more than the obvious answer.


Pretty much any good mix of ol' Django Rineheardt's "Minor Swing" works.  John Beltran's mix from a few years back was pretty good, but there are numerous out there.


Kormac's "Scratch Marchin'" is always a favorite.  Something about Kermit in the intro makes me dance.


Hope it helps!  I have a bit more, but I had until very recently thought electro-swing was a random occasional derivation, I had no idea until just a few months ago how big it is on the other side of the pond!


Great suggestions so far.

If you have more, I'm all ears.

Right now a few of my hotwax favorites are Shake Ya Boogie by Mocean Worker, Soulsalicious by Tape Five and Touch my Horn by Jesse Rose...yass yass siree!
I agree with Jeremiah on Caravan Palace. "Dragons" is really good. I would add "Suzy." I'm a big fan on Tape Five "Pantaloons."
Caravan Palace of course, many songs from White Mink: Black Cotton 2, Lyre le Temps or Parov Stelar  

@ Hayen Mill: I was thinking the exact same thing!


But anything upbeat by Wolfgang Parker would do as well.. 

Absolutely Wolfgang Parker. I agree completely Wels.

I actually feel a bit silly for not mentioning Wolfgang, being native to his home town..


Parov Stelar's  "Chambermaid Swing" is some pretty good stuff
