Thanks for the new all troupes table Ryan, I was looking for the old one the other day. Notable that they're all what you might call 'hot' routines (even Barbados in the snow!) with no slow and sensitive representation.
Good point GD and yes I do leave myself open to your sharp observation. Unlike HDTY Legs & Co in All Right Now[without Rosie again you'll also notice] are given choreography that is not belittling to them and so the could be seen as demeaning attire of ARN is overcome with a tongue in cheek energetic performance.
I think you guys just might be thinking too much. It's ok to score a performance on whether you like it and not analyse whether you should like it or not in my opinion. We're all imperfect humans after all but these dances often give you a gut feeling and All Right Now puts coal in my boiler. I also agree about it being surprising to see Silly Love Songs so high but it's good to see a variety of styles at the top of the charts.
Some Dancers who gave a good time, broke all the rules, played all the fools, yeah yeah yeah they blew our minds
Thinking too much maybe. Our opinions are formed initially from our gut feelings I agree. You are attracted to something because of how of it makes you feel and then try to justify it afterwards intellectually. So many different viewpoints but ultimately surely there is such a thing as Objective Reality beyond our subjective impressions of what we see? That is what I am seeking, I think ? Or should that be I feel to be so ? I like many foods, some taste pleasant and some bland, but only some are Objectively good for me, is that not so ? Are truly of good quality, are healthy to eat, which as an individual I may or may not like. And so with dances, some are genuinely in good taste and others are not even if they can be liked by many.
LNV, I'd hate to ask you whether or not you'd like a sugar in your tea.
By the time you'd finished deliberating, philosophising and pondering the pros, cons, merits and otherwise, how beneficial or harmful a saccharine supplement would or would not be, what effects may be caused to your energy levels on long or short term bases, how effectively debilitating the sweetening suggestion could be dental-wise, whether you'd be looked upon favourably or with distain as a consequence, the beverage would be stone cold.
Admittedly it does take me some time to put my thoughts together, such as they are. I try to give a considered opinion on the dances, not that I should trouble myself too much with such things when a quick like or dislike summary would be enough. Why should I take the trouble of going against the grain as I often do with my opinions, whether through my own contrary nature or trying I believe to look a little deeper at what these dances signify, if anything ; rather than viewing them as transient entertainment.
There is a statistical method called 'truncated mean', where you truncate the lowest and the highest value before you determine the mean. I wonder how some of our routines would change their positions with this method.
