The following three break into song movie moments made our hearts sing, swoon, smile, dance, ache, break. Watch the videos to relieve what were undoubtedly the best moments of your teenage life.
Three Break Into Song MomentsThat Made Our Teenage Hearts Sing
10 Things I Hate About You, 1999
Heath Ledger singing and dancing Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You
I’m pretty sure this scene defined the lives of many teenage girls. From this point on, if your boyfriend didn’t sing and dance in front of all your friends, effectively making sure everyone knew how much he loved you, he wasn’t that great a boyfriend. The best part of this scene, besides the adorable playfulness, is the fact that Heath Ledger holds nothing back whilst singing his heart out to this classic love song.
(500) Days of Summer, 2009
Joseph Gordon-Levitt dancing to You Make My Dreams
I mean, OBVIOUSLY. Although he doesn’t actually sing, the surprise of this moment was such a delight it demands a place in this list. What starts out as a normal, joyful skip in his step, soon turns into a big happy flash mob, and we can’t help but smile along.
Blue Valentine, 2010
Ryan Gosling singing You Always Hurt The Ones You Love
Even when he’s singing stupid, this damned Ryan Gosling makes us swoon. Knowing how this romance turns out doesn’t diminish the sweetness of this moment, which is made even cuter by Michelle Williams’ tap dancing.
I may or may not have listened to this song obsessively on my old mp3 player.
