When we think of chart-topping musicians over the last decade, we might picture artists like Bruno Mars, whose music has become nearly ubiquitous. His funk-tinged tracks were everywhere a few years ago, appearing in everything from Google Home promo videos to Skippy peanut butter commercials.
While his songs did amazingly well on Top 40 stations listened to by teens and twenty-somethings, his style harkens back to funk and soul music from bygone eras, attracting older listeners as well.
But what about elderly listeners? It might seem surprising, but one couple couldn’t get enough of his hit single “Uptown Funk.” The couple, from Texas, went on vacation in Canada, and while they were there, they decided to check out some live music. Keith Mullins was playing at a restaurant near their resort, so the music-lovers headed there for some entertainment.
They were loving the music, and when Keith started playing an acoustic version of “Uptown Funk,” they knew exactly what they had to do. The adorable pair had their proverbial dancing shoes on, so why not hit the floor? Both of them got out of their seats and put on a performance that warmed the hearts of everyone watching.
Fortunately for us, someone had the foresight to capture it all on video and share it online! Watching the two of them dance together would make just about anyone want to cut a rug alongside them.
And beyond that, it’s made commenters express their dreams of sharing such a fun relationship full of friendship and love in old age. YouTube commenter Drema Bell said, “I love this couple. Hope this is me at their age!” People were particularly enthralled by the husband’s fancy footwork, and when you check out the footage you’ll definitely see why.
This charming video serves as a reminder that music truly has no age limit, and that it has the power to bring people of all generations together in unexpected ways. It’s a testament to the timeless nature of music and its ability to bring joy and connection to people of all ages.
