Flash Mobs for Everyone! Let’s Sing and Swing!

Time for true confessions: the reason I picked this “Flash Mob” musical theme is because I got so carried away with willowdot21’s  “All Things Travel” theme that I could not resist continuing travelling around the world.  Blame the choice of Flash Mobs all on the “Ode to Joy” video which I’ve included here because it was the piece that sent me searching for mobs in places of transportation. Yes, you can travel the world via Flash Mobs everywhere. Some of them will even moon you. Yes, indeed, five guys and a fountain where it’s illegal to wade…yeah, I wonder if Bear, Willowdot21 or Johnny have selected that piece of young guy fun?  What I enjoy most about these Mobs are the expressions on those watching and those performing.
Enjoy, be careful with the mob from Moscow. Damn, I wonder what sort of a riot one hot guy with a boombox can incite if he were inclined to do so? LOL.
Imagine all the great music, fun and dancing everyone could be enjoying every day around the world if all the warmongering would just cease and desist. As Tracy Chapman sings: This could be heaven here on Earth.

El Bolero de Ravel, en la estación central de Copenhague
articulosiete
Parece que cuando se habla de un flashmob este tiene que ser un baile “improvisado” en una estación de tren, por lo que habrás visto este esquema una y otra vez, sin ninguna originalidad. Sin embargo aún se pueden hacer flashmobs preciosos y llamativos como este de la Filarmónica de Copenhague (Sjællands Symfoniorkester) en la Estación Central de la capital danesa, donde sorprendieron a todo el mundo con esta interpretación del Bolero de Ravel.

    Gangnam Style Flashmob (illegal mob) – Happy Holiday Indonesia #5

  2. October 17, 2013 at 7:27 pm

    I think I like Fanfare for the Common Man in Dublin!!! And who doesn’t like El Bolero? Waltz of the Flowers, lovely, I had not hear of Good Deed Day.:-) and who know, Hugo perhaps should have written in Polish. 🙂 …other fun stuff too!!!

    • October 18, 2013 at 1:54 pm

      Indeed, who does not like El Bolero? Yeah, well, written in Polish or not clearly isn’t a problem for those folks. 🙂 As I explored this I was so surprised at the variety. Heck, I sure didn’t expect to find Bollywood in Peru!!!!

  3. October 17, 2013 at 7:31 pm

      Hi willowdot21. Yeah the Polish Les Mis gets me every time too. Those performers seem to be really having a great time out there interacting with the public at large–and all things considering history…
      Glad you enjoyed the trip!
