"That's the way it should be"

This post's primary goal is to make up for the recent blogging drought. And to flaunt one of my favorite scenes in any movie musical ever.

So, who else loves Bye Bye Birdie (the 1963 movie musical) as much as I do? I watched the film during Thanksgiving Break and thought it was an absolutely hilarious satire. ("Ed Sullivan?! He's my favorite human being!")

But it is also, surprisingly, an exceptionally sweet film. The scene I posted exhibits all the charm and humor of the film. I love how Ann-Margret and Bobby Rydell have such innocent, adorable chemistry. Plus, Janet Leigh constantly amazes me. And "One Boy" is just such a swell song.


  1. Havent heard of the movie, but I did like that video.

  2. i tried to watch the video on the 10th, but it's not up any more

  3. sorry - my bad - it's back - very sweet - you are obviously a romantic. you should be reading victorean novels.

  4. I'm glad you all enjoyed the video!

    Richard, I do like Victorian novels. My favorite book ever is Dickens's David Copperfield. I'm a fan of Dickens's writing and I hope to read more of his works in the future.

  5. you must read anthony trollope-try
    'orley farm' to start. as you are already used to the victorian writing style, you should enjoy it very much. trollope has a great sense of humor-very droll. unfortunately, he wrote only about 45 books, but most of them are still in print. i've read at least10.
    is the earth always moving in fremont?
