A Sunday Morning Workout!

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: SONGS FEATURED IN FILMS THAT MADE THE CHARTS

You may have had hopes that this would be a relaxing Sunday morning. However, my song choice today is one of those tracks that is impossible to sit still to. I defy anyone who can hear this song without tapping their toes or flaying their arms around, or jumping up and imaging they are the sole performer on the dance floor.

Girl, Woman, Female, Dance, Jumping

The song is of course “What A Feeling” from the film “Flashdance”. At the end of this post I have added a trailer for the movie itself. The song topped the charts around the world and spent six weeks at the US Billboard Number One spot.

I know the Irene Cara song so well and have danced to it many many times….but you know, I have a terrible confession for you, I don’t think I have ever seen the movie. I am not great with films in general – I have been rather busy for the past twenty years, with my “free-time” coming in short 15-60 minute bursts. Other than The Sound Of Music, I have not scheduled time for film viewing. I have seen clips but I have never actually watched it. Jack is horrified about that….I sense a movie night is going to be scheduled.

First when there's nothing
But a slow glowing dream
That your fear seems to hide
Deep inside your mind

All alone, I have cried
Silent tears full of pride
In a world made of steel
Made of stone

Well, I hear the music
Close my eyes, feel the rhythm
Wrap around, take a hold of my heart

What a feeling
Being's believing
I can have it all
Now I'm dancing for my life

Take your passion
And make it happen
Pictures come alive
You can dance right through your life

Now I hear the music
Close my eyes, I am rhythm
In a flash, it takes hold of my heart

What a feeling, being's believing
I can have it all
Now I'm dancing for my life

Take your passion
And make it happen
Pictures come alive
Now I'm dancing through my life

What a feeling

What a feeling (I am music now)
Being's believing (I am rhythm now)
Pictures come alive
You can dance right through your life

What a feeling (I can really have it all)
What a feeling
(Pictures come alive when I call)
I can have it all (I can really have it all)

Have it all (pictures come alive when I call)
(Call, call ,call, call, what a feeling)
I can have it all (being's believing)
Being's believing (take your passion)
(Make it happen) Make it happen
(What a feeling) What a feeling

            1. You must know that any dancing videos have the potential to go viral though. I still regret the two videos that were leaked of me strutting my stuff on the dancefloor. One my Tina Turner tribute….the other when I was wearing bloomers.
