Friday Video: Dance with Me

Friday, July 3, 2015

Isabella reporting,

This is the beginning of a long, three-day weekend in America. Yes, the Fourth of July celebrates our independence, but it's also a fun holiday, marked by fireworks, parades, and backyard BBQs, chasing fireflies and relaxing out-of-doors with friends and families.

Today's video is in that nothing-too-serious spirit. Shut Up and Dance by Walk the Moon is one of the unavoidably catchy Top-40 songs of the summer, and YouTube user MsTabularasa has cleverly edited memorable dance scenes from popular movies of the last seventy-five years or so to fit with the song. If you can't name them all (I'll admit I couldn't; I guess I don't go to the movies enough), the YouTube page does have the full list.

Enjoy the weekend!

Great Video. Thanks for using a snippet of one of my favorite paintings...A Friendly Call, by William Merritt Chase.

Didn't recognize some of them?! I didn't recognize most of them. Doesn't matter thought, it still make you want to dance.

Happy 4th!
