"Swing the Mood" is a song by Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers from their debut album The Album.

Produced by the father and son DJ team of Andy and John Pickles, "Swing the Mood" was a cut and paste record which fused a number of early rock and roll records with liberal use of Glenn Miller's "In the Mood."

Derided by critics it nevertheless became a massive hit in the United Kingdom spending 5 weeks at the top in July and August 1989, partly aided by the Jive Bunny animated character. The record became a worldwide phenomenon, reaching #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States. It was the 2nd best-selling single of 1989 in the UK, outsold only by "Ride on Time" by Black Box.
