Donald O’Connor – “Make ‘Em Laugh”

Year: 1952

Album: Singin’ in the Rain soundtrack

“Make ‘Em Laugh” alone, with its incredibly silly and impressive dancing by Donald O’Connor and its smart lyrics, could be the reason why you should watch Singin’ in the Rain. Fortunately the rest of the movie has aged well, and it is pure Hollywood bliss for all the non-cynics in the room. Maybe it’ll make you want to get up and dance too.
