Jonathan Coulton leads a music parody game alongside Ophira Eisenberg on Ask Me Another at the Bell House in Brooklyn, New York.

Revisit the New Jack Swing, you know, that musical genre trend of the mid-1980's to the early-'90s that fused R&B with jazz, soul, and hip-hop. In this music parody game, songs from the New Jack Swing movement are rewritten about things that very literally swing — or can be swung.

Heard on Justin Long And Marina Franklin: Franklin My Dear, I Don't Give A Long.
