Nazi Swing

When you go Googling for nothing in particular, you'll find strange stuff. In this case, I found several recordings of swing jazz produced by National Socialist Party paid musicians as part of Joseph Goebbels' propoganda campaign. As a whole, the music is pretty cookie cutter stuff from the 1930s jazz era, sprinkled with bizarre pro-Nazi lyrics like "You can't stop the Germans, you're in their hands, you'll have to listen to their commands" in a distinctively German voice.
