Classic Movie Musical Number Pick Me Ups

Found myself in a classic movie mood recently. More specifically, in the mood to watch two of my favorite classic movie musical numbers.

The first is “Chattanooga Choo-Choo” featuring Dorothy Dandridge and the Nicholas Brothers from the 1941 movie Sun Valley Serenade.

The second is the infamous dance break in Stormy Weather (1943) featuring the Nicholas Brothers, considered by many to be the best dance break ever. It’s the crescendo that ends Cab Calloway’s “Jumpin’ Jive.”

Each time I watch these numbers, I’m a bit happier than before I pressed play. They both exude joy to me.
