You May Want to Dance with Somebody After Watching This: VIDEO


Director Alan Brown's film Five Dances, which we previewed on this site back in May 2012, opens on October 4 at the Cinema Village in NYC's East Village.

Brown and singer-songwriter Scott Matthew have released a stunning video, a gorgeous cover of Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody", in conjunction with the film's opening. The clip was directed by Brown.

  5. The video and song are both trying desperately to be magical and ethereal. This seems like a goosey teenager's idea of art and dance.

  6. Beautiful. Jacob, from SYTYCD, looks really good. Very masculine.

  7. That was the longest video I ever watched. 5 minutes felt like hours.

  8. Missed the mark. Too many close ups. Hard to enjoy watching people dance when you can only see them from the waist up. Plus the down tempo and the slow motion just made it seem interminable.

  9. It's also available on Spotify

  10. Thanks, Andy, it brought a tear to my eye to whatch this. I was in high school when the song hit the charts and it spoke to me then because I really wanted to dance life with someone. It took 20 years later and an acceptance of myself before that occured, but it did occcur. Now I am dancing the remainder with someone who loves me.

  11. I wasn't sure what to think about this as it first started, but oh gosh... beautiful.

    I really like the way a fabulous pop love song can become a ballad.

    Love - In all it's forms. We are we. Together.

  12. I wanted to like it. Some parts were sensual and good. The problem is close ups, you don't see movements.

  13. The video is stunning but the remake of "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" was spectacular. I've never heard that version before. It's just amazing how an artist can take something so familiar and recognizable and flip it on its head in such a way that it's almost unrecognizable from, but even better than, the original.

  14. Who is the hot guy on the right in that picture?

  15. Pansexual modern dance porn. Who would've thought it possible, but there it is.

  16. Thanks. I found it to be quite beautiful.

  17. I generally liked the video; however, I'm wondering why there wasn't a single woman/woman dance pair. It's great to be be inclusive and show men dancing with men and those same men dancing with women, but why no love for the lesbians? I'm getting a little bored with the arts and media obsession with male homosexuality. We need more bisexual and lesbian inclusion.

  18. Don't forget, we're only supposed to make positive comments about tiresome work.

  20. crazy boring.

  21. Nice for those who haven't heard a slow version of the song, but you should really listen (youtube) to Matt Alber's version. And if you want to see sensual/sexy/romantic dancing, also on youtube, see his "End of the World" video. Get out your hankies; it will bring tears of joy to your eyes. I can almost guarantee you'll be posting it to your facbook friends, and listen again and again. Amazingly beautiful.

  23. That was terrible! I bet Whitney Houston is crying in heaven right now!

  24. snore...

  25. I want to like it so much, but taking such an iconic song and completely changing the tempo like this, well I don't like it. It sounds like the singer is sick, can't quite get enough breath. Not much of a singing voice either. Now I need to listen to Whitney to erase this from my mind.
