I know this is and old thread, but I think the song would work–I actually just heard a cover of it the other night (I think it was Madeline Peraux?) done in a slow vocal jazz style, and it’s like it was made for a slow swing dance. 🙂 So pretty!

to do a swing dance or lindy-hop, you very specifically need to have a specific rhythm, “eight to the bar.” you know, with an eight-count that can be broken up into beats/steps of four (or eight) or combinations thereof. i love leonard cohen, and am trying to sing that song in my head right now…. and i’m quite sure it is not at all in swing rhythm. i think it’s very slow, too, right?

Oh, you can swing to almost anything! If it’s too too slow, trying dancing double time!
