I would like to share with you today the best Electro Swing songs that in my opinion provide the right setting for a sensual dinner date or a slow dance. I came up with the list by searching on Youtube, Spotify and Soundcloud and by listening to other bloggers’ lists.
I have chosen these songs because they have a unique style of combining modern beats and old school jazz vocals, which gives them an extra edge over other electro swing songs. They are arranged in this order according to my personal preference, but keep in mind that music is quite subjective, so what I consider to be number one might not be your favorite song.
My recommendation is that you listen to all of them and make your own opinion. Enjoy!
Here is my top 5:
This is a great song to start a sensual dinner date. It’s also perfect for a slow dance in the dark, as it starts off with a slow beat and builds up as the song goes on.
This song is a perfect companion to “Alone” because it starts out with a slow beat and builds up as well. It’s more upbeat than “Alone” but not so much that it’s overwhelming.
This song has an interesting back story about how it was originally intended for an advertising campaign but never made it into one because of its explicit lyrics (or lack thereof). The title comes from an old French slang word meaning “to do something naughty.” The track itself is pretty catchy too, so it’s worth checking out if you haven’t already heard of this electro swing track before!
This track has just enough twang to make it sound like you’re listening to country music while still having all of those electro elements we love so much! This track is perfect for anyone who wants something with some twang but doesn’t want anything too extreme or loud.”
Have you ever experienced that moment when the song you are listening to perfectly encapsulates your mood, your relationship with a loved one, or the way you feel about life in its entirety?
In that moment, it’s as if the song was written just for you. The lyrics and music seem like they were plucked out of thin air and fed straight into the ears of both you and your partner. This is that playlist.
You may have heard some of these songs before, maybe even danced to them at a club or in your living room while no one is watching. However, I guarantee that using this playlist at the right moment will be an experience so surreal it will disguise itself as normal. These songs should be played at a dinner date or during a slow dance with someone very special in your life. They are all designed to elicit feelings of love and longing; to stir up romance and create memories which will last for years to come.
For years I’ve used this playlist on numerous occasions with varying degrees of success. The more intimate the setting and the better acquainted both parties are, the more effective this playlist will be. There are no guarantees that it will work; however, I can tell you from experience that nothing beats witnessing somebody fall for you all over

Electro swing is a genre of electronic dance music and is based on samples from the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s. Electro swing combines these vintage sounds with modern beats and bass lines. The genre has its roots in the late 1990s when it was pioneered by artists such as Parov Stelar, DJ Para One and Caravan Palace. Other notable artists include: Bart & Baker, Gramatik, Zoot Woman, Waldeck, Jamie Berry, Deluxe, Tape Five, Club des Belugas and Parov Stelar (again).
Electro swing has been featured on TV shows including How I Met Your Mother (The Short Long Story), Skins, Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire and in video games such as FIFA 13.
