Dance scenes from old movies put to Bruno Mars music

Michael Binder is what you would call a “movie aficionado” through and through. He’s probably watched just about every single movie you’ve ever heard of, twice. In fact, Binder loves movies so much that he’s managed to make a career writing about them and talking about them for his hundreds of followers.

But when he saw the mega viral hit that featured a bunch of dance scenes from popular movies matched up to the incredibly popular song, “Uptown Funk,” he was instantly inspired to do a similar mashup, only he wanted to use dance scenes from movies that only came out of the Golden Age of cinema.

It took him a long while to find the perfect clips which properly conveyed the energy and passion, but after he scanned through hundreds and hundreds of movies from 1953 and earlier, he finally edited together an absolutely stunning video featuring some of our favorite dancers and singers.

It’s pretty amazing to watch legends like, Gene Kelly, Shirley Temple, Judy Garland, and Fred Astaire dance to one of the catchiest songs ever!

The amount of time it must have taken to edit this whole piece together is truly astounding. Not only did Binder have to be aware of the dance sequence in his head, but he had to time it properly with the music without speeding up or slowing down the original footage.

All about that bass – music video

I grew up listening to music playing in the house. When I used to play Santana – loud – in the basement my mom would come downstairs and ask me to turn it up! My Mom!! She quite enjoyed Santana, along with many other blues, jazz, and rock and roll bands I’d play. My mom’s dead now. I can just picture music blaring and her swinging from the chandeliers in heaven. Go for it, mom.

This music video was delived to me today. It’s quite popular according to youtube. I hope you enjoy it too.

One Tin Soldier music video

Listening to more music of late and came across ‘One Tin Soldier’ by The Original Caste.

According to the web site Subversify;

“The lyrics never explained whether the Mountain People were being elitist in their wanting to share their treasure only with “brothers” instead of the entire land.  Were the Mountain People acting just as greedily as the Valley People by insisting the treasure was theirs?  At the time, we were living in the age of peace loving hippies and aggressive Kent State National Guardsman, and so we assumed that the pure Mountain People must have been exploited by the modernistic Valley People.  The lesson seemed to make sense; more importantly, it seemed to satisfy 1970s audiences who read their own problems into this simple song, which could have very well remained timeless and abstract.

Religious references do abound in the song, from the denunciation of religious leaders claiming to be heaven-inspired, to the “judgment day” coming in which presumably God judges those who are blood guilty for their deeds, not their side.  This led many to believe that the song may represent more than just governmental abuses of power; perhaps it was a reference to the power that all organized religion had over the masses.”

Conquistador Donald Trump.

I was going through some of my old vinyl records when I came upon “Conquistador” by Procol Harum – recorded with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra – and thought how much this music video fits Donald Trump.

Donald, you’re a sad, tired, boring old fool who’s greatness is only in your imagination. Instead of conquering the world you’ve made the United States the laughing stock of the world. Even the Swiss are laughing at you.

You have truly gone far beyond your ‘Peter Principle’ level of incompetence. You should have quit before you won. Now everyone knows you are just a tired old fool.

Conquistador lyrics:

Conquistador your stallion stands in need of company
And like some angel’s haloed brow
You reek of purity
I see your armor plated breast
Has long since lost its sheen
And in your death mask face
There are no signs which can be seen
And though I hoped for something to find
I could see no maze to unwind
Conquistador a vulture sits, upon your silver sheath
And in your rusty scabbard now, the sand has taken seed
And though your jewel-encrusted blade
Has not been plundered still
The sea has washed across your face
And taken of its fill
And though I hoped for something to find
I could see no maze to unwind
Conquistador there is no time, I must pay my respect
And though I came to jeer at you
I leave now with regret
And as the gloom begins to fall
I see there is no, only all
Though you came with sword held high
You did not conquer, only die
And though I hoped for something to find
I could see no maze to unwind
And though I hoped for something to find
I could see no maze to unwind
