"K.K. Swing" is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Doubutsu no Mori. It uses a down tempo drum kit, a thumping bass, a vibraphone in some parts, and a wandering wood-wind instrument. Swing music originated in the 1920s in the United States with influences from jazz and classical music and the song is particularly indicative of the 1940s crooner style of swing by musicians such as Mel Tormé and Count Basie. The song that plays during the night shift in Town Hall is similar to this.
