Throwback Thursday: All You Need Is Music. Sweet Music For Dancing!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants

We both enjoyed looking at this painting by Renoir, at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris.  The dancers are in a world of their own enjoying the dance.  It brought to mind the lyrics of Dancing in the Street, by songwriters: Marvin Gaye / William Stevenson / Ivy Hunter.

All we need is music, sweet music.
There'll be music everywhere.
There'll be swinging and swaying and records playing,
Dancing in the street.
Oh, it doesn't matter what you wear,
Just as long as you are there.
So come on, every guy, grab a girl.
Everywhere around the world
They're dancing.
They're dancing in the street.
 
In this case, they were dancing in the Western suburb of Paris, a city called Bougival in one of the parks there.  No doubt, in those days a band/or orchestra was playing. 
 
                           “Dance is the hidden language of the soul.”
                                               Martha Graham

One of my favorite Renoirs, Alexandra. You don't even need to give me the name of the artist. I see that painting and I know immediately who painted it. And now you have me singing Dancing in the Street. I remember dancing to it in high school.

Such a stunning painting, Ron and Alexandra, and I remember seeing it among so many other beautiful masterpieces at the D'Orsay. And who doesn't know that song?!

How well I remember this song from back in the day, Alexandra. Martha Graham has a great point is her quote about dancing.

Nina Hollander I loved seeing Whoopi Goldberg singing it in Sister Act, The Movie!  And Renoir does not need a signature to tell it is.  My mother in law had a pretentious friend who had her come over to her house to see her RENOYER.  It was a Renoir, but Ron's mother never got over the woman's pronunciation.  A

Jeff Dowler, CRS The d"Orsay had several paintings that were on loan from different museums that I had not see up close before, as did the Fondation Louis Vuitton from the Courteauld Collection in London, like VanGogh peach trees in bloom, as well as his self portrait with the bandaged ear.  A

What a beautiful and colorful painting. Love that song. Like the song "I hope you dance. " You can't dance without singing or/smiling.
