Life Has Its Funny Little Ups And Downs – Donald O’Connor

Watch more with these video collections:

Noreen Corcoran sings “Life Has Its Funny Little Ups And Downs” to Donald O’Connor from the 1953 movie, I Love Melvin. Not only does it feature this catchy little song, but it includes Donald tap dancing on his roller skates, which starts up and ends… perhaps not down, but definitely with a smash.

Some of the best dancing from the archives: phenomenal swing and lindy hopping, the Haka Dance and, of course, the not-to-be-missed Nicholas Brothers.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.
