Roger Federer has always been one of the most charismatic and funny fellows in the ATP Tour and seeing a video compilation of him entertaining tennis fans all over the world while the famous hit Dance Monkey is playing in the background will surely bring a big smile on your face.
In the video below you can see Federer in his youngest years and when he was in his prime — not implying that he is far from it now; you can see him laughing, making funny faces, waving his hands in the air, dancing along Bill Gates, hitting tweeners, lifting trophies and a lot more.
Dance Monkey is interpreted by Tones And I — Toni Watson — and this week was their 22nd at the lead of the Australian singles chart. Besides this, Toni Watson’s hit has topped the charts in Germany and New Zealand.
Essentially, Dance Monkey is a song that describes the author’s life as a busker. She sang in the streets and in other public spaces, but the fact that people, especially drunk ones, were rude to her was not so happy part of the busking business.
The song was born from this experience. "I had already been busking for six hours. One person ran past and stole my money, and another was drunk and tried to lean over and play my keyboard. The crowd was very drunk and rowdy. I said, 'I'm sorry, but this is it.'
They tried to get me to keep playing, then they started booing me, and I was so frustrated because it showed me how people didn't have much patience anymore." Watson told to Diffus.
