Subway Passengers Break Out In Impromptu Performance Of ‘Dancing On My Own’

The passengers’ impromptu performance of ‘Dancing On My Own’ at the New York subway went viral.


Let’s face it, no one who has to use public transport daily actually enjoys it. This holds true for commuters on the unfriendly New York City subway, where passengers spend most of their journey trying to avoid making eye contact.

According to the video, it was Robyn’s ‘Dancing on My Own’ that made the ride more enjoyable, as people came together to sing and dance on the subway.

Skeptical New Yorkers were seen loosening up and turning their normally boring commute into a fun time. The video was shared online and quickly went viral, garnering more than a million views.

The video got many comments, one wrote, “As soon as enough people sing together, it doesn’t really matter whether the individual can sing. It always sounds good, and even the worst singer gets carried along and can feel proud about him- or herself.”

Another person wrote, “As a New Yorker myself, it’s so rare to see New Yorkers having fun together as a community, especially in the subway stations.”

May we all learn to enjoy the good music that God created for us. Let the little kid inside us come out, have fun, and keep things light.
