IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM GreatShowTunes.com

GreatShowTunes.com is brought to you by Jazz on the Tube and JazzontheTube.com needs our help...

It's very possible that if GreatShowTunes.com fans do not support the site this month, we will have to disconnect the GreatShowTunes.com website from our offerings. It currently costs more to operate than it makes in ad revenue.

Will Great Show Tunes survive into 2015?

Great Show Tune's sponsor Jazz on the Tube needs a little help from some friends...

Over the last year, our modest income from ads is down 32% and out expenses are up 37%

We're not daunted and there's still a lot more we want to add to the site, but...

Between hosting, e-mail management, extra bandwidth charges, data storage costs, research and editorial, clerical, programming and customer service, our monthly nut comes to $1,500 a month or nearly $18,000 a year.

The ads we run help, but don't cover the entire cost so if you're inspired and able, we're appreciative of any help you can send out way - as we are of all your support.

The Bee Gees (and Rita Hayworth)

Advertisement

Musicality is musicality. Here Rita Hayworth, Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, and many others dance to the Bee Gees' disco hit "Stayin' Alive" from "Saturday Night Fever." Of course they're not really dancing to this song, but a creative editor was able to marry dance clips from 10 movies to the disco beat.

From 1934 to 1972, Rita Hayworth appeared in 61 films, many of them musicals. She was the first featured dancer with both Astaire and Kelly. She also "sang" in many of her films, but her voice was usually dubbed.

The movies featured are Down to Earth, You'll Never Get Rich, Tonight and Every Night, Cover Girl, You Were Never Lovelier, Gilda, Miss Sadie Thompson, My Gal Sal, Pal Joey, Affair in Trinidad. We'll be seeing some of these originals in future Great Show Tune videos.

In the meantime, a bit of additional trivia about this song is that it has been used by the British Heart Foundation and the American Heart Association to instruct people on the proper rhythm for heart compressions when doing CPR. They recommend that you call 911 (999 in the UK) and "Push Hard and Fast" to the 100 to 120 beats per minute of Stayin' Alive. See how Ken Jeong does it in this Great Show Tunes Bonus. By the way, Ken Jeong knows what he's talking about. He plays an odd teacher/student in the NBC comedy, Community, but he actually has an MD from UNC-Chapel Hill.
