Agent Carter vid: Shut Up and Dance

Note #1: I first encountered this song in a lovely Star Wars: The Force Awakens vid by [personal profile] such_heights. You should go watch it; it's great!

Note #2: You know how 90% of what I write is a riff on the exact same theme, finding home and family? This is basically that, in vid form.

Title: Shut Up and Dance
Artist: Walk the Moon
Fandom: Agent Carter
Spoilers: Seasons one and two
Summary: Peggy finds her people, and her place in the world. Agent Carter team vid.
(This vid contains a couple of talking clips in the middle, in case that's something that bothers you.)

Lyrics:

Oh don't you dare look back
Just keep your eyes on me
I said you're holding back
She said shut up and dance with me
This woman is my destiny
She said oh oh oh
Shut up and dance with me

We were victims of the night
The chemical, physical, kryptonite
Helpless to the bass and the fading light
Oh we were bound to get together
Bound to get together

She took my arm
I don't know how it happened
We took the floor and she said

Oh don't you dare look back
Just keep your eyes on me
I said you're holding back
She said shut up and dance with me
This woman is my destiny
She said oh oh oh
Shut up and dance with me

A backless dress and some beat up sneaks
My discotheque Juliet teenage dream
I felt it in my chest as she looked at me
I knew we were bound to be together
Bound to be together

She took my arm
I don't know how it happened
We took the floor and she said

Oh don't you dare look back
Just keep your eyes on me
I said you're holding back
She said shut up and dance with me
This woman is my destiny
She said oh oh oh
Shut up and dance with me

Deep in her eyes
I think I see the future
I realize this is my last chance

She took my arm
I don't know how it happened
We took the floor and she said

Oh don't you dare look back
Just keep your eyes on me
I said you're holding back
She said shut up and dance with me
This woman is my destiny
She said oh oh oh
Shut up and dance

Oh don't you dare look back
Just keep your eyes on me
I said you're holding back
She said shut up and dance with me
This woman is my destiny
She said oh oh oh
Shut up and dance with me

This is so much fun :D "Bound to be together" with Peggy, Daniel, and Jack, yess; and the Jarvises too, aww. I love how the vid emphasizes how important Peggy is/becomes to so many different people.

I love that song so much, and this vid uses it well. I love the way this so well captures how people react to Peggy, the changes she builds in the them, and how she is so wonderful and so good at bringing people together as family. Very sweet and satisfying vid.
