Good dancing in this one. The stuff with the men and the chairs is fun. I don't know how Karyn does some of those moves in high heels.

A great video. She cited Gene Kelly as an influence on her career.

 

She even danced with an animated character in a video

I already posted this in another thread but this one is influenced by the Sound of Music (obviously).

I like that one. Makes me think of the suffering during the Great Depression. Good song.

The director of this one must have been an "American in Paris " fan...
