Singing in the Rain

I heard this song twice this week and decided Dame Fate demanded I post.

I smile when I see this dance number. And I don't know what makes me smile more ~ the sheer joy in the beauty of the art, the fact that Gene Kelly was a competitive perfectionist sonovabi*tch and you would never know it from this clip, or that it reminds me of when I was four years old running out in the rain in a little red bikini with big white buttons, screaming with my cousins and my siblings their first visit of the summer at our Gramma's house.

In the end, it doesn't matter. The song and the dance and the memories make me happy.
