Thank you, Erin. This made me smile this morning.

Erin O'Brien said...

sxk: I could watch this again and again. Gene Kelly was simply poetic.

Hi Goat. Yay!

Anon: You're welcome, although the credit goes to Kelly and MGM.

Of films of that era it's definitely the best, nice choice Erin! I watched that clip all the way through too!!

I always wanted to see MC Hammer do a remake of this. But, I drink a lot too.

*the best part is, I knew what this was even before I hit 'play'. (sigh)

Great stuff.

Doug said...

If you come 'round my blog this Thursday, my first entry on the Thursday Thirteen will introduce you to the AntiKelly, arguably one of the most appalling dancers of all time.

Jim Winter said...

Pretty cool, O'Brien. Reminds me it's not that dark of a world after all.

It's still dark, just not all dark.

This is disgusting, the way this schmuck blatantly ripped off A Clockwork Orange!

Helen Mansfield said...

Late post, I realize, but I'm with Hal on this one. This is one of MANY songs that I just can't hear without thinking of bad movie bits.

"Stuck in the Middle With You," Steelers Wheel.

"Lust for Life," Iggy Pop

The list goes on
