Singin' in the Rain,
just singin' in the rain,
what a glorious feelin'
I'm happy again!

I'm laughin' at clouds
so dark up above,
the sun's in my heart
and I'm ready for love.

Let the stormy clouds chase
everyone from the place,
come on with the rain
I've [got?] a smile on my face.

I'll walk down the lane,
with a happy refrain,
and singin',
just singin' in the rain!

*It's a classic, of course sung by Gene Kelly. Wasn't it in a movie of the same name? Or at least it was in a movie of his!

There is definitely a movie "Singin' in the Rain," one of the all time best hollywood musicals, and Gene Kelly dances up a storm in it, sings the song, and courts Debby Reynolds. Donald O'Connor, who plays his best friend, has a wonderful comic dance routine in it as well. Rent it, watch it, love it. --seed

The song was written in 1929 by Arthur Freed (words) and Nacio Herb Brown (music). It was introduced in the movie Hollywood Revue of 1929 by Cliff Edwards, the Brox Sisters, and the Rounders. It will be forever identified with Gene Kelly because of his memorable performance of the song in the 1952 movie, Singin' in the Rain. I sure liked that movie.

Of course, if you like your cinema filled with violence, brutality & cynicism, there's always "A Clockwork Orange" in which our lovley protagonist...well, let's say he behaves rather badly while singing this song.

Hi,

One of my favourite films. I just love Gene Kelly, (died a few years back I think).

I'm a sucker for the MGM musicals.

We did a version of this when I was a Scout leader some years back. We'd yell the command "chest out" and have the boys sing the chorus of Singing in the Rain.
Then "stomach in" and another chorus and on to:
bum out - chorus
knees together - chorus
toes together - chorus
head down - chorus
mouth open - chorus
When the kids got into it (and the younger kids often did) it was hilarious.
Ahhh, the good old days.

Hi, Bob - I still do that version of "Singin' in the Rain," except that I have people swivel their hips with their thumbs up and their knees bent and all that, while chanting
Toody-toddy, toody-toddy, toody-ta-ta
Toody-toddy, toody-toddy, toody-ta-ta
The the "Singin" part is the chorus. Around the east side of Sacramento, it's known as "Joe Offer's Greatest Hit."

Do you get them to clap their hands as they sing the chorus too? That's the version I know! Actually, I didn't even realise I had done this (on a tall ship, wouldn'tcha know - we do the daftest things there to keep the troops amused) until I started mentally going through the routine! Vote me in on the "Singing in the Rain for Best Musical Award" too! Dignity, always dignity.... Best, Mo

Joe & Mo: I'd forgotten about the thumbs out and knees bent parts - never knew about the swivel hips, the chant or clapping hands. And I haven't tried it with adults ... hmmmm ... hmmmm ...

Folk Police: I think our ad hoc multi-national movement has started converting this tune from Hollywood musical to oral tradition to folk.

Here's what I do, Bob - I shout out a command and have the group repeat after me, adding one command each time we go through. the last verse is:


thumbs up THUMBS UP
elbows in ELBOWS IN
knees bent KNEES BENT
head up HEAD UP
tongue out TONGUE OUT

Toody-toddy, toody-toddy, toody-ta-ta
Toody-toddy, toody-toddy, toody-ta-ta


And then the whole group usually collapses in laughter. Adults seem to like it, too.

Dear Folk Police, I can usually hide behind the fact that if a song is already in the database in the form of lyrics, then it should be legitimate to add the tune as well. I need your interpretation of the relevant folk laws in this regard, and what action if any you would propose to take. I note your disapproval of the contributor who was foolhardy enough to post the lyrics above. Given that this song is not yet technically in the archive, perhaps I may need to consult Justice Greenhaus. If you are considering prosecutions I would not hesitate to point the dexter at Mr Joe Offer in the first instance. While I am sympathetic to Mr Offer's intentions I doubt that this constitutes an offence on my behalf.

Regards John

Who, ME????
Well, I think it has already been established that I am a folklaw scofflaw of the worst sort. I plead guilty - proudly. All I want is for people to have a good time singing good songs. I'm not fussy about genre, although I prefer songs that are at least a few decades old.

Aaak! Did I unknowingly violate a law!?! Ooops. Oh well. To me, if my Nana sang it, it's a folk tune. All other folktunes are sung by Rev. Ken Ramsden. Thats my rule, but I warn you that I've led a sheltered life. Cheers, Candace
