The Swinger "is a bit of python code that takes any song and makes it swing. It does this be taking each beat and time-stretching the first half of each beat while time-shrinking the second half. It has quite a magical effect."

The samples on the website are actually pretty cool.

What an interesting concept! Some of the songs worked better than the others. I liked Enter Sandman and Sweet Child O' Mine.

Makes Money for Nothing sound a little bit country.

Enter Sandman does seem to work fairly well.

Kind of fun, overall, but nothing I'd really want to listen to, especially since most of these have such an iconic rhythm structure in the first place!
