Old School, New School

video
from 9/4/06 from
pseudo-intellectualism

I haven't seen Idlewild. I am sure I would like some of the period sets and musical numbers. Reviews say that the director didn't go to school on some of the classic 30-40's musicals. The plot evidently is just as stale as the old schools', but I'm sure there's nothing in Idlewild that can compare to the Nicholas Brothers and Cab Calloway. From Stormy Weather, done at probably 1% of Idlewild's budget


You say you want a literacy connection? Here's those meaningful lyrics-hey they're more meaningful than much of Outkast
Boys - what you gonna say down there? Oh Boys - what you gonna say down there?
Palamar, Shalamar, Swanny Shore Let me dig that jive once more
Boys - take it right on down to the gator Oh boys - gotta take a side elevator
Can't you hear those hip cats call Come on boys let's have a ball
The jip-jam-jump is a jumpin' jive Makes you dig your jive on the mellow side
The jip-jam-jump is a solid jive Makes you nine foot tall when you're four foot five
Now, don't you be that ickeroo Get hip, come on and follow do
When you get your steady fool You met your jump like the gators do
The jip-jam-jump is a jumpin' jive Makes you like your eggs on the Jersey side
The jip-jam-jumpin' jive Makes you hip hip on the mellow side
The jip-jam-jump is a solid jive Makes you nine foot tall when you're four foot five
The jip-jam-jumpin' jive Makes you hip hip on the mellow side
Now, don't you be that ickeroo Get hip, come on and follow do
When you get your steady fool You met your jump like the gators do
The jip-jam-jump is a jumpin' jive Makes you like your eggs on the Jersey side
The jip-jam-jumpin' jive Makes you hip hip on the mellow side
Skibbel-de-doo . . .Now I told you 'bout the jumpin' jive
Jip-jam-jum the jumpin' jive I know you dug this mellow jive
Cause you dig it on the mellow side
