Two videos I never tire of watching

I was looking back through the EKN archives and found this video, which I very much enjoy on all kinds of level: Macca celebrating his rock and roll roots, a great arrangement, and fabulous dance moves in the video making it all a celebration of multicultural Britain. I'm all for variety.

For various reasons which should become clear, the dancing video reminded me that Persephone of Post-It Notes From Hades posted a great video recently, which I instantly pinched and stuck on my Facebook wall but never got round to linking here. (In the intervening period the Youtube version Persephone used - and which I used on FB - has been blocked, but it's still on Vimeo.)  It shows an amazing marriage proposal by Isaac Lamb, a guy in Portland, Oregon. Now proposals can be romantic, they can be soppy, and sometimes they can be truly awe-inspiring, like this one. Or perhaps I mean awesome and inspiring.

The song is "Marry You" by Bruno Mars. And "dancing juice" is apparently what they call alcohol in Portland, Oregon. Sit back and marvel.

It's a beautiful night,
We're looking for something dumb to do.
Hey baby,
I think I wanna marry you.

Is it the look in your eyes,
Or is it this dancing juice?
Who cares baby,
I think I wanna marry you.

Well I know this little chapel on the boulevard we can go,
No one will know,
Oh, come on, girl.

Who cares if we're trashed got a pocket full of cash we can blow,
Shots of patron,
And it's on, girl.

Don't say no, no, no, no-no;
Just say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah;
And we'll go, go, go, go-go.
If you're ready, like I'm ready.

I'll go get a ring let the choir bells sing like oooh,
So what you wanna do?
Let's just run girl.

If we wake up and you wanna break up that's cool.
No, I won't blame you;
It was fun, girl.

Just say I do
Tell me right now, baby
Tell me right now, baby

Just say I do
Tell me right now, baby
Tell me right now, baby
