New Year's left overs.

New Year's Eve, Turner Classic Movies had an Astaire/Rogers marathon. I hadn't planned on watching, but got bored and started watching one and then recorded a few more. so, tonight we watched Swing Time. I think this is the first Fred and Ginger movie I saw when I was much younger. so far, i think it's still my favorite. so I hunted down the final dance number from it on YouTube because I think it's the best. maybe because it's a bit different from the others, not as happy.

skip to about five minutes where the dancing starts if you're impatient. the set-up is she's leaving to marry some band leader. the music covers some of the previous numbers in the movie so it's just that much more sad. to me anyway.
