Promise of a new day
Woke up with a song on my head and not exactly sure how it struck me…
This is associated with one of the most beautiful choreography and DANCE performances i have witnessed and also recommended staging at various places when i was taking care of the cultural extravaganza during my college days!
A handful of my senior batch, extremely smart and innovative in style and thought, came up with an ODISSI choreography for this song(if anyone grabs an mp3, listen and try relating :)) Add to the choreography, some efforts in fitting in the right costumes (a black odissi classical dance dress with silver jewellery) and always demanding the perfect stage set up!
This was a rocking hit in BITS Pilani – Oasis-RAZZMATAZZ where it was staged first, repeated the next year , sweeping both years the top place 😉 and was part of our college shows within Delhi. I wish i could grab a video or something!
I used to get high watching them perform (I always missed the auditions when they were updating the group for future stagings 😦 ) !
Anyway, this morning , i am stuck on an unusual playlist:
– Promise of a new day – Paula Abdul
– Vogue – Madonna
– Some similar tracks on Pandora
– Africa – Toto
Aah yes, last week i had my first voluntary(i have accidentally had flesh in the past :D) Chicken intake followed by Prawn pakodas yest ;))
It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had
The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what’s right
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
I seek to cure what’s deep inside, frightened of this thing that I’ve become
