Sound & Motion Pictures: impromptu dance scenes

When you hear certain songs you just can’t help yourself: you must dance! These are funny, contagious dance scenes that happen rather unexpectedly and it’s impossible not to related to the characters. Music from the late seventies and early eighties gets the lion share, these are some memorable dance tunes used in many films.
