I bet you're thinking what has happened to Rock Choir, well we are resting for the Easter break. Yes only two more weeks and we will be back for a new term and to start some new songs.
We start back with one I have personally been waiting for. It was bound to come around sooner or later, well we are a choir so surely we must be singing something from The Greatest Showman. I loved this film and all of the music too, how can you not? Let's face it you would have to have been on a different planet not to know anything about this movie.
'This Is Me' will be our first song to learn and I think most of us won't need our lyrics as I am sure all of us Rockies have had a diva moment at one point, can't be just me. It is a very emotional, empowering song which says I don't care what you think of me, suck it up buttercup as this is who I am .......this is me!!!
I can't wait, so excited, to get back singing again and to sing this song. I wasn't too sure about our other offerings though. Oh I've said that a million times before haven't I? I can think that I don't like a song and then when we learn the Rock Choir arrangement I end up liking it better than the original so I am not making any judgement at all.
The other two songs are 'Mandy' by Barry Manilow and Stevie Wonder's 'Don't You Worry Bout a Thing'. Out of all the Stevie Wonder songs this was the one I least expected to do really but we'll see, I won't worry, bout a thing. I do love the song Mandy but another one I wasn't expecting and another I'm not sure of again but I know Rock Choir are gonna prove me wrong and I'll be saying that I love em'.
We also have to bear in mind too that some of the Rock Choir members request these songs and we must respect that, they probably have a deep meaning for others and we all have different tastes. I suppose it is hard to please everyone with every song. I often wonder what I would do if my wedding song popped up? I'm no longer married but I like my song, would I bunk off for a couple of weeks or would I hold it together and sing it? I'll let you know it it ever appears.
Ha got you thinking now haven't I? Some will know it, those that attended the wedding. Oh ya can't beat a bit of Bazza, no I didn't have one of his songs but he is great though. I'm going to just shut up and get on with it after all I could sing the alphabet and be happy and actually we do sometimes in warm up.
Thank you for being here my lovelies and reading my posts. I will return tomorrow for Teapot Tuesday but for now......you all take care.
Today is about anything to do with my love of music, whether it be reviews of concerts and gigs or shouting out my favourite tunes and my experiences at Rock Choir!
