There’s a lot to love and appreciate about modern cinema, but for me, nothing touches the magic of a classic movie musical. No special effects are needed for these scenes, they’re just incredible showcases of pure human talent, and a great song and dance routine can make everyone smile like nothing else can.
This video is more than a mashup. It’s an homage to the evolution of dance through the years and a love letter to dance on film. Can you imagine Fred Astaire dancing to Uptown Funk? Well, thanks to the awesome technology, you don’t have to.
This amazing video pairs clips from a parade of old Hollywood musicals with matching beats from Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’s “Uptown Funk,” so seamlessly, you’ll swear the hit song had to have been featured in “Singing in the Rain.”
You wouldn’t think the old, black and white relics from decades ago would pair up well with a poppy, modern track, but the mashup blends the styles seamlessly. It’s so perfectly timed to the music, it looks seriously real.
