All of me, why don't take all of me?
All of me! Oder doch was anderes? Jedenfalls: The Old-Fashioned Swing Band took tänzerisch all of us, gestern Abend beim Swing Time Konzert "Old-Fashioned Swing Band" am Salonschiff Fräulein Florentine. Děkuji, ihr habt am kalten Hochwinterabend am Donaukilometer 2137 die TänzerInnenherzen im Downbeat tanzen lassen. PS: Wenn du's weißt, poste uns drunter, in welches Stück die vier Jungs am Anfang des Videos bald abgebogen wären!
