My Mom and Dad were big fans of Bob Hope and James Cagney. I wish they could have seen this video. They taught me to love music and I was brought up on show tunes. When you watch this… you ask yourself… “Self, why are these guys so talented in all aspects of show business?” Part of it is… they honed their skills in vaudeville and when they got to the movies and TV it didn’t take them long to become stars.
How do you get to the top of anything? Practice, whatever it is, for years. Endless hours. You keep failing until you get it right. Dancing is one of the hardest skills to perfect. Most people can’t tap their foot to the music. Stop saying, “I wish I could do that.” You probably can, but your heart isn’t in it.
These two guys earned the title of “show stoppers” all their lives. Watch. You won’t regret it.
