The Song - Watch the Birdie

It probably doesn't surprise you to hear that I love old music. A few weeks ago, I downloaded a song I had heard at swing dancing lessons called Watch the Birdie. I loved the quirky feel of the song, as well as the random pauses and theatrical style, and I thought to myself: I bet this song is from a movie. Well, what do you know - when I looked up the song on Youtube, it turned out that it's from the 1941 film Hellzapoppin', which has some of the best Lindy-Hop dance routines in any movie. Anyway, I quite enjoyed watching the video clip, so I thought I'd share it with you.

Until next time :)
