What is your top 10 ukulele swing songs (between 20s and 40s)

Mine is (but can change)

All of me
Bei Mir Bist Du Schôn
Sweet georgia brown
It's a sin to tell a lie
Shimmy like my Sister Kate
Ain't she sweet
five foot two
Yes sir that's my baby
I found a new baby
Aint misbehavin
My Blue Heaven

I don't recognize 'Shimmy' or 'New Baby', but I'd like to suggest:

Tip Toe through the Tulips
Moonlight Serenade

You can add Wayne "The Train" Hancock to that group, as a modern, keeping the western swing torch lit, disciple.

Can't forget about Django! I love the uke version of minor swing on YouTube...I just can't quite get the chromatic run at speed.
