As Sage is deep down the rabbit hole of a never ending work event (Seriously everybody! Send her all the good vibes so she can survive one more day!), I’m taking the playlist post again this week.
Pats self on the back for being an awesome blog partner.
In addition to being massive TV geeks, Sage and I are also musical theatre geeks. So it was inevitable that showtunes would end up on the playlist. And for some reason, I’ve been in a quite a showtuney place lately, so I thought I would look at the ones we chose for the playlist…
Written in the Stars – Aida
“I am here to tell you we can never meet again.
Simple really, isn’t it? A word or two and then
A lifetime of not knowing where or how or why or when.
You think of me or speak of me and wonder what befell
That someone you once loved so long ago so well…
Is it written in the stars?
Are we paying for some crime?
Is that all that we are good for
Just a stretch of mortal time?
Or some God’s experiment
In which we have no say?
In which we’re given paradise
But only for a day.”
Um. Was this song ACTUALLY written for this scene…?
Why yes. Yes I THINK IT WAS. Aside from the whole “Marry the princess, Radames” interlude, that is. I will never be able to listen to this song the same way again. You’re welcome.
