Shut up and dance: Music Monday

I know it’s a Tuesday, but bear with me…it’s worth it.

Nothing makes me happier than a good dance scene from a movie. There are way too many to even start trying to list them all, but think Flashdance, Footloose, Dirty Dancing, Slumdog Millionaire, Magic Mike, Saturday Night Fever, Pulp Fiction and West Side Story.

If we’re talking musicals, the dance scene is expected. If we’re talking drama’s or comedies, they are always a welcome surprise.

I just watched this video and it had me smiling from ear-to-ear.

Somebody put together all the most perfect, and most famous dance scenes from movies across all genres and laid it to the track Shut Up and Dance, by Walk the Moon.

It. Is. Perfection.
