Astonishing found footage of kids dancing to the Velvet Underground in 1956!

From the DM archives:

The footage is from TV teen dance show “Seventeen” that aired in 1956 on Iowa station WOI-TV. The video was uploaded to the Internet without sound. In its silence, I imagined a soundtrack completely unrelated to the place and the time these dancers inhabit. I put together a soundtrack of tunes that is far different from the kind of rock ‘n’ roll that existed in the mid-1950s…but not that far. As long as there’s a beat that syncs up with the movement of the teenagers in the clip, it doesn’t matter what era the music is from - it’s all about the rhythm, the rock and the roll. Yep, the soul of music is timeless. And here’s the proof: a bunch of kids dancing to the Bush Tetras and The Velvet Underground in 1956.

Songs:
Run, Run, Run - The Velvet Underground
Rule The Nation - U- Roy
DJ’s Choice - Dennis Alcapone
Warm Leatherette - The Normal
Why Can’t I Touch It - The Buzzcocks
Too Many Creeps - The Bush Tetras
Love Song - The Cure
B.O.B. - Outkast
America Drinks And Goes Home - The Mothers Of Invention
