I’d Rather Dance With You

Posted by shanoah on January 7, 2009

Well, given that I’ve already played the main other song I can think of dealing with puppets, I may as well go completely off track and post something I’ve been planning on posting for a while.

And, you know, it really feels like I’ve typed this before. I likely previously started this post and lost the draft, or something.

I’d Rather Dance With You – Kings of Convenience

This song is actually one I’ve had on cd for a while. Catchy as it is, I never really remembered it till seeing this music video, though. This is one of these music videos that feels like it ought to be a trailer for a movie. It probably me some manner of story about growth and self expression, following a kid who was ridiculed for his unique dancing style growing up and teaching a dancing class.

On the other hand, this covers most of that well in 4 minutes. And the kids seem to go from automations at the beginning to take on character and expression in the second half of the video. That *really* has to be hard to do in the limited time span. Anyways, love this music video, and I’d love to see more…
