Several weeks ago I posted about Ely Kim and his 100 songs in 100 locations. Here he is again.
BOOMBOX from Ely Kim on Vimeo. I love music and I love dancing, so I thought it would be so fun to emulate Ely and do my own dance compilation.
So I did! Really! Over the last six weeks, I had several of my family members film me in different locations. At times, I just danced and had fun. Other times I felt self conscious and thought, “Why the H am I doing this?” I’m sure some of my family also thought, “Why the H is she doing this?” But I did it. Embarrassing at times, just letting loose at times, silly at times. It’s done, and here it is. Thank you to my cinematographers (my husband, 9 year old son, 6 year old daughter, mother in law, hubby’s aunt, and my dad all filmed parts of this!), and thanks to Ely for making me dance!
KELLY DANCES TO 12 SONGS IN 12 LOCATIONS
1. Baby Got Back by Sir Mix-a-Lot
I think I dance slightly better than the Burger King dude in the commercials….
2. Rock Your Body by Justin Timberlake
I’m no JT, that guy can dance!
3. Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It) by Beyonce
This was actually choreographed by my hubby’s cousin, Anna. This is filmed in her dance studio. She was captain of the University of Iowa Dance Team last year. She is an AMAZING dancer. Me, not so much.
4. Freedom by George Michael
That’s my son J-Man in the goggles. That’s the mother of three in the polka dot tankini.
5. Somebody Told Me by the Killers
I was trying to dance like Ely in this one. Isn’t the forest preserve behind me beautiful?
6. Hollaback Girl by Gwen Stefani
OK-Go’s treadmill video gave me the idea for this one!
7. Fergilicious by Fergie
What? This isn’t the moves to the Rain Dance?
8. The Reflex by Duran Duran
I SO love Duran Duran! Can you tell my six year old filmed this one?
9. Kiss by Prince
Yes, this was first thing in the morning. Me, no makeup, very tired.
10. Tainted Love by Soft Cell
Didn’t you dance on Easter Sunday?
11. Disturbia by Rihanna
This was filmed in the foyer of my house, can you see lil JD on the stairs?
12. Super Freak by Rick James
My dad’s neighbors stopped to watch this one. Very embarrassing! If you didn’t see Little Miss Sunshine, you probably think I’m nuts. Oh, wait. If you just viewed this video, you already think I’m nuts.
