Twitter Mashes Up ‘Singin’ In the Rain’ With ‘It’s Raining Men’

The internet has also brought us the joy of watching Gene Kelly dance to “Sandstorm”

Gene Kelly’s iconic dance under a downpour in “Singin’ In the Rain” is arguably one of the most famous scenes in movie musical history… so, of course, the internet is going to turn it into a mashup.

One adept poster on Twitter named Cuppycup noted that the famous song can be swapped out with any track that has the same beats per minute, and Kelly’s fancy footwork synchronizes perfectly. To demonstrate, Cuppycup paired the clip with a song that’s about as far as you can get from postwar showtunes: Darude’s “Sandstorm”

And Cuppycup didn’t stop there, showing the clip with several other songs that are a BPM match, most notably another toe-tapper about precipitation: “It’s Raining Men.”

“Singin’ In the Rain” is available to stream now on Filmstruck.
