Seems silly to include `From Here To Eternity` in this, we cant really see the dancers can we ! So i will move on this.
Well this one gets no better does it, cant say it features on my play list ever. I will award DOTD to `Rosie`, who once again plays the lead in a routine very well. Just a shame she was lumbered with the unnecessary spot on her chin.
Yes I agree, the ribbons, flowers, makeup and bedsheets are unable to hide Rosie's beauty here. Patti has a few good moments and the rest of the flock is in good unison but overall this is not one of my most valued performances at all. Rosie it is then for DotD
Some Dancers who gave a good time, broke all the rules, played all the fools, yeah yeah yeah they blew our minds
The worst thing about this Routine believe it or not is the way in which George Benson delivers the song, in an over enunciated style that tries to come across as ever so sincere, pure hokum syrupy I’m so concerned about our Children’s future blah blah. The sentiments are not to be faulted but please it just is phoney to me.
The Routine is nice to look at, with a golden summery feel at the start, bed sheets and all. Though using the word ‘nice’ is as good as it gets in damning something with faint praise, I suppose. As the lighting changes to a white balance look, are they supposed to be dancing in the moonlight ? I like the cool light blue colour that appears on the edging of the outfits. Then once again at the dance finish all turns a golden yellow. There will be a significance to this no doubt, knowing our Flick's liking for hidden symbolism or a meaning connected to the song that the Troupe are dancing to. Maybe I over analyse.
I can stand to watch it more often than most, going off comments made about it so far.
