Something for Thursday

Singin' in the Rain has so many great numbers, that this one always seems to get overshadowed. Here, Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly) has taken Kathy Selden (Debbie Reynolds) into an empty soundstage and set the scene with colored spotlights, a ladder, a fan to make a gentle breeze, a fog machine, and a large silver spotlight to create "moonlight".

This is one of the songs I sing a lot, under my breath, when I'm working...and in my dreams, maybe once in a while I can dance like Gene Kelly. Maybe. For a minute, before I wake up.
