Somewhere Over the Sunny Side of the Street

This is an intriguing bit of video that features a rare look at the dancing of Ray Bolger along with an informal version of "Sunny Side of the Street" by Judy Garland.  The two of course worked together many years before on The Wizard of Oz.  This is from Garland's CBS television variety show of the mid 1960s.  There are some awkward moments, and what was supposed to be spontaneous just appears under-rehearsed, but it's got some "in the moment" life to it as well, and it's a short but very upbeat version of "The Sunny Side of the Street."

If you're stressed by the election, you aren't the only one.  Maybe this will help.  Stay tuned, more sunny sides to come.
