Shakin' & Bouncin' the Blues Away

I absolutely love musicals. And during these long sometimes dark winters, there is nothing like curling up and watching a great musical. I especially love Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers films. When I'm feeling blue, I just watch them dance and it instantly puts a smile on my face. I also wanted to add the sublime Ann Miller to the mix with her wonderful version of  Shakin' the Blues Away from one of my fave musicals "Easter Parade". So please watch and smile. I dare ya!

that number is freakin incredible! god she was awesome!
Annie is my second fave female dancer of all time right behind Cyd Charisse. She was a tap dancing hellion and maybe not as dynamic as Eleanor Powell but she had tons more sex appeal and could really sell a song vocally too! imo she totally steals the show in On The Town and Kiss Me kate.
Doesnt hurt she's drop dead gorgeous either ;)

speaking of.... i really like your new profile pic :)
