They were having a lot of fun too!

Pat said...

Z: I think the fact that it was thrown together at the last minute - for Live Aid - gives it an edge.

Good stuff!

Eryl said...

I knew I'd seen Mick Jagger wearing a nice green shirt while singing with David Bowie!

Didn't know it was his birthday, but hope he's having a lovely one.

Mage said...

Yes, it has a wonderful immediacy. I'm sitting here grinning.

You can't beat a good ol' camp-it-up!

Little known fact #1; I once won 100 quid (2nd prize) for singing this very song at a works 'do' many years ago!

Little know fact #2; My kid brother, Eddie, is the spitting image of Mr. Bowie! :¬)

Pat said...

Naomi:
out around the world, are you ready for a brand new beat?
Summer's here and the time is right for dancin' in the street.
Dancin' in Chicago (dancin' in the street)
Down in New Orleans (dancin' in the street)
In New York City

All we need is music, sweet music,
There'll be music everywhere
There'll be swingin' swayin', and records playin,
Dancin' in the street

Oh it doesn't matter what you wear, just as long as you are there.
So come on every guy, grab a girl,
Everywhere, around the world

There'll be dancin', they're dancin' in the street.
This is an invitation, across the nation,
A chance for folks to meet.
There'll be laughin' singin', and music swingin'
Dancin' in the street

Philadelphia P.A., Baltimore and D.C now,
Can't forget the motor city,
All we need is music, sweet music
There'll be music everywhere
There'll be swingin' swayin', and records playin,
Dancin' in the street

Oh it doesn't matter what you wear, just as long as you are there.
So come on every guy, grab a girl,
Everywhere, around the world

They're dancin', dancin' in the street
Way down in L.A., every day they're dancin' in the street
Lets form a big strong line, and get in time,
We're dancin' in the street.
Across the ocean blue, me and you
We're dancin n the street


Everybody: all together now!

Parsnip: I went back and listened to Martha and it is great but I really enjoy the war of the egos with Mick and Dave.

John: glad you approve:)

Eryl: I'll bet he knows how to party

Mage: you have to dance too:)

Map: you'll have to sing it again - it's ageless.
YOu know David has eyes of different colours - as in - one blue, one brown.

Gypsy: now we have the words lets have singin' too.

Mage said...

RYN: Tights are in here. Opaque stockings when you are not in boots ...which are very in. :)

Pat said...

Mage: thank Heaven for boots and sandals. Smart shoes are a pain - literally

LL Cool Joe said...

I have to say I much prefer the original.

Happy birthday David!

Pat said...

Joey: Oh:(

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Thanks SOOOO Much Pat....Well, Now...it all makes sense!!! LOL! They certainly do look like they are having a good time...And ALL places here in the good old USA...!

Kim Ayres said...

I'm sure I remember seeing a few parodies of this video, although to be honest, it's a bit difficult to make it more amusing than it is :)

Pat said...

Kim: I checked one of the parodies and you're right - it's just an imitation done by two girls.

rosneath said...

just proves to me how much more tasty David is to me than Mick!! Love him! Go David Go!!
(oh and I love the word verification for me 'mater'!!

Granny Annie said...

Nothing like a good bit of fun for a good cause. Neat video.

Pat said...

Rosneath: they are both outrageous but David is my favourite.

Granny Annie: them's my sentiments eggsackly:)
