Swinging saturdays is a musical meme hosted by Ice Cold Passion, to share our passion for music. The goal is to make a top 5 (or Top 10) for whatever genre or artist you like or get creative and share a theme based music top 5. For example a bookish soundtrack, funny songs, song to listen to on a rainy day top 5.I can't dance for shit, but I love to see people dance, I watched all the Step Up movies, Dirty Dancing, Save The Last Dance.They are all awesome, I think the allure is to me that I can't even phantom doing something like they do, my body is not made to hold a rythm. Anyways here are some of the most beautiful dance video's I have found over the years.
Muse ~ Dead InsideYou might think well something like Muse is impossible to dance to, rock is not somehting you associate with dancing, and yet the choreography in this video is really amazing. I hope you enjoy it as well.
My Chemical Romance ~ HelenaI don't know I have always loved this video, it might just be the beautiful church but also the beautiful costumes and dancers.
Ed Sheeran ~ Thinking Out LoudHere is the starting point of artists that dance their own music video's and of course these are found in the realm of pop songs. I fell so much in love with this video the first time I have watched it, it is so mesmerizing so beautiful. I don't even have words for it. Just enjoy oke?
Lady Gaga ~ Bad RomanceCan do beautiful dance video's without adding one of my favorite pop singers. In showmansship she rivals Micheal Jackson. I absolutely love her strange videos, beautiful weird costumes and the time and effort that went into every detail.
Michael Jackson ~ ThrillerYou would not think I would leave out the king of pop would you? ofcourse we are ending this list with the one and only master of dance, Michael Jackson! Thriller is an amazing work of art, no doubt about that. And many took inspiration from this music video, through out the years. You will also find some of the elements in the above video from Lady Gaga. This video has aged very well, and even in 2021 it is one of the most impressive video's I have ever seen.
Let me know what you thought of this top 5, and if I should re-attempt something like this again. I know there are many more beautiful dance videos that I haven't mentioned, would you like to see a part 2 to this one? Maybe do a deep dive in various styles of dancing something like that? I would love to know what your thoughts are, feel free to leave a comment here or on my socials.
