Shirley, Fred and Ginger

Some ‘mash-up’ juxtapositions are good, some are not so good.

This one works well in a strange way.

Starting with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers on the silver screen.

Fred sings ‘Cheek To Cheek’ from the 1935 movie Top Hat, written by Irving Berlin.

#Heaven, I’m in heaven, and my heart beats so that I can hardly speak…#

Then the soundtrack becomes the sultry ‘Slave To The Rhythm’ by Dame Shirley.

An unlikely combination but Shirley’s song works with their virtuoso dancing. It’s cleverly time-shifted to match.

See what you think… and thanks to DS9Sisko whoever you are!
