Does anyone remember sexy, single lawyer, Ally McBeal? Besides being one of my favorite shows in a category I like to call GirlTV, Ally was one of the most musical shows on television. Ally and the other lawyers often imagined elaborate musical numbers being performed in and out of the courtroom. In one of the most iconic scenes in the entire series, Ally dances with a CG baby that represents her biological clock.
In one of my favorite Ally McBeal episodes, Ally starts therapy with the wack-a-doo, Dr. Tracey who encourages her to do something very important...
I searched for a clip of Ally dancing to her theme song on a busy street but the internet has failed me. Below, I've included a few songs, including "Tell Him" (which is Ally's song) that I seriously have danced to in public.
If you haven't tried this, grab your ipod, your mp3, your walkman, your discman, or do what Ally does and hear the music in your head. Pick a public place - the grocery store, the mall, or my personal favorite, a city sidewalk. Press play. Don't think about anyone. Just dance, walk, swagger, whatever. Did I mention the more annoyingly cheerful/cheesy the song is the better it works? I tried this two days ago walking across campus. I can't remember the last time I smiled that much.
Do. It. I triple dog dare you.
Look. This guy did...
What have you done this week to make yourself smile? What's YOUR theme song?
