Looking out a dirty old window

Down below the cars in the city go rushing by

I sit here alone and I wonder why

Friday night and everyone's moving

I can feel the heat but it's soothing

Heading down, I search for the beat in this dirty town

Down town the young ones are going

Down town the young ones are growing

We're the kids in America

We're the kids in America

Everybody live for the music-go-round

Bright lights the music get faster

Look boy, don't check on your watch, not another glance

I'm not leaving now, honey not a chance

Hot-shot, give me no problems

Much later baby you'll be saying never mind

You know life is cruel, life is never kind

New York to East California

There's a new wave coming I warn you

We're the kids in America

We're the kids in America

Everybody live for the music-go-round

We're the kids

We're the kids

We're the kids in America

This is completely delightful! I knew it would be as soon as I saw the song, and it lived up to all my expectations. I have a grin from ear to ear. :)

This is so delightful, I love how joyful and fun it is without shying away from the sadder aspects of the story! And I love how you incorporated the clips of the older movie!

(By the way, silly-cleo asked me to let you know that she's offline until Monday so she's not able to watch right now but she's looking forward to it!)

Excellent video! I really loved the song choice and the use of clips from the original movie version. And the repeated shots of Annie's DHS papers - perfect!

This is totally awesome--perfect song and the nod to the older movie is great, and I'm just so glad to see this wonderful, joyous movie get such a loving treatment.

Really great use of the movie. The use of positive scenes as well as negative (or sad, however you want to qualify them) was well done.

This is so beautiful <3 I haven't seen this film yet, but this has made me realise that I DEFINITELY need to. It's heartfelt and beautifully timed (love the use of the dancing, and the intercutting of the old film) and just lovely. Brb, off to find the film.

Oooh, inspired song choice and fabulously edited. Loved the clips of the original movie you sneaked in there - that's the only version I've seen so it pulled it all together for me in a lovely way.

OMG this is wonderful, thank you SO MUCH, it's exactly what I wanted!! The song choice is perfect, and even though I knew from the comments you'd intercut the old movie in, I still was completely delighted when it got there! I love how you've edited all the singing and dancing, and the way it builds up to include the cuts to the old movie, and as someone above said, despite being adorable and bouncy, the vid still not shied away from more serious aspects of the movie! Absolutely perfect, thank you SO MUCH again!! <3333

(Sorry for the delay, after getting back online I got slightly eaten by life, this is the first chance I've had to watch it but I'm excited to watch it many many more times!! <3333)

This is brilliant! Very cute and happy, but not in a way that wasn't true to the story, there's the darker bits too. The section after the one minute mark was great, and all the dancing sections had great timing (that early clip of the kick!). I was meh about this movie but now I want to track it down and see it.

This is so cute and fun! You captured her infectious joy and enthusiasm so well as well as bringing all the other kids into it too which I loved.

This is so incredibly sweet! I haven't actually seen the new movie (though I grew up watching the old) and I want to see it immediately, it looks wonderful. I really enjoyed your mirroring of shots, the interspersing of dance/song sequences with other shenanigans, and incorporating the older versions of Annie was really clever. (i definitely also laughed audibly at the shower of trash to "dirty town"). Great job!
