Musical Monday ~ Movie Dance Scenes

Welcome to Musical Monday! Music has been known to affect our emotions. Listening to music can make us happy or sad, relaxed or motivated, put us to sleep or make us want to dance. Music absolutely plucks at our heartstrings bringing to the surface a multitude of emotions.

Someone once described music to me as a time machine. When we listen it often transports us back to a place in time. A certain song can bring back feelings of someone we loved, our wedding day, someone who died, or any of the many important times in our lives.

Music has always been a big part of my life. When I am sad listening to a sad song often allows me to release that sadness. Happy songs tend to take away my sadness. It has helped motivate me to do housework. Yep, just crank up the radio or a music television station and I’m good to go. Warning: Be careful not to turn your music up too loud though. I have actually blown out the speakers in a television once doing this.

I have been known to start singing in a store when a song that I like comes on, I tend to sing along with songs while I am driving, and it isn’t unusual to see me moving to the music in my computer chair as I sit and listen to music.

  1. Dance scenes I love: Julia Stiles’ audition scene in Center Stage. Vera-Ellen and John Brascia in White Christmas. The Bollywood number in Cheetah Girls 3. ::ducks and hides::

  2. These were wonderful – some of these I’ve not seen in years! I watched the Saturday Nigh Fever routine with the sound off, and I was surprised at how graceful and, frankly, old fashioned it is. Thanks for posting these!

    • Thank you for taking the time to come by to watch. It’s always been amazing to me how some people can dance with such grace. I’d probably have fallen on my face if I tried some of the moves I’ve watched.
