I've been off work for a couple of days
feeling proper poorly
(cue: ahhhhhhhhhhhhh)
but this cheered me up no end.

The world is certainly changing;
who would have thought it -
a flash mob happening in Moscow,
dancing to an 83 year old American song
written by a Russian born American Jew
(Irving Berlin).

Why do flash mobs ALWAYS make me cry?!

Jo, this popped up just as I was logging off and stopped me in my tracks. Love it but sorry you're not feeling too good. Hope you feel better soon. xx

Hi Jo,
Love it! They always make me cry too, but I think I know why. A flash mob is nothing more and nothing less than a celebration of JOY! -can't get much better than that.
Feel better,

Thanks for sharing! Hope you soon feel better Valerie

Thanks for this Jo - one of the best flash mobs I've seen.
They make me feel happy and weepy at the same time. I think it's because all differences are put aside and people join in for the sheer joy of it.
Hugs and sparkles for you - hope you feel better soon.xx

Always reminds me of that scene in FAME (bad movie, great dance scenes) when they all come out of the school and start dancing on the cars.

Hope you feel better. Can you cut and glue in bed?

Brilliant - love it love it. It has the same effect on me I go all warm and fuzzy, find that I am grinning like an idiot and then feel tearful, happy tears though.

So sorry you are feeling poorly. Alan is off with a lurgy too. Don't stick to the sheets with all that glue and glitter will you. Get well very soon sweet one.xxxx

This made me smile and cry all at the same time! Fantastic!!!!!

Monica said...

This is no mob and no flash. No group is that coordinated that hasn't practiced and practiced.
And you cry because when you tried the back flip it was an whoops moment

They make me smile. I have an idea for our 50th to do a surprise 1960's dance....( you are invited ! )

sorry not well xx

That was very cool, Joanna. I think flash mobs make you cry because it is people getting together, cooperating, expressing themselves and DoInG something GOOD! And fun! And creative! xoxoxo love it, thanks.

Virginia said...

Wow that was absolutely awesome, thank you for sharing and I must admit to being slightly watery eyed as well!

BadPenny said...

The local choir did " Food Glorious Food " Flash Mob on the village green during food week and I missed it !

i cried all the way through the flash mob... shining happy tears.

just kindred souls!
hugs from across the pond,
