Obsessional Editing

This is the original by Jeff Lynne's ELO. I did post about it back here but I've since watched it a hundred or so times, and felt compelled to find the information outlined below.

This is the original dance edit by Alfonso Jimenez Videos. A lot of it is in HD so that's my reasoning for suspecting it came first.

The next edit is by Sabrina Fani

Sabrina's principle addition is an edit of Bebo Best & The Super Lounge Orchestra - Sing Sing Sing (Dance Video) | Choreography | MihranTV

This is one of the original dance scenes (Lot of Livin' To Do) from the movie "Bye Bye Birdie" with the extraordinary Ann Margret

For me this is the next level choreography. If you pay attention there are always at least three layers of action going (foreground, middle and background) on and there are references to antiquity which just boggle the mind and hint at creative input that is in my opinion rarely seen for public consumption. I probably wouldn't have noticed it, just by watching the 1969 movie Sweet Charity, with Shirley MacLean (sister of Warren Beatty and Illuminati bloodline), but the dance edit by Alfonso Jimenez brings it to life in a way that is unforgettable. Original choreography by Bob Fosse.

The last video is Freemasons (ironic huh?) featuring Katherine Ellis "When you touch me", an homage to the dance scene in Sweet Charity, as she bears a strong resemblance to the lead female dancer. I've yet to find the names of the dancers in the movie but that's the final piece of the jigsaw.

To find this information took me weeks and weeks as I had to trawl through the comments of the Sabrina Fani video edit.

It's safe to say I'm obsessed with that Sweet Charity choreography and setting. When I found out it was released in the year of my birth, I couldn't believe it. I genuinely thought it was super fresh and made recently.

I may come back if I find more additions of original material.

And here I y;am
