When I was younger, around 2004 or so, Mom discovered the men of Il Divo. I mean, the music was okay, but I didn’t care for it much because it’s mostly opera singing, and they were singing in languages I didn’t understand. BORING. However, I have since changed my mind.
Listening to Diego Torres on iHeartRadio this weekend led me to a Spanish-music-buying binge, where I bought a few more of his songs and bought the rest of Shakira’s new album, “El Dorado”.
Oh, I think that I found myself a cheerleader, she is always right there when I need her.
Back in April, we had Camptown at my school. Well, part of it, anyway. They had to reschedule all the games and rides because it was raining cats and dogs outside.
But the Sage the Gemini Concert was still a go. They moved it to the gym because it was still raining. I got myself a front row seat at first, but some of the school events organizers told me I could move if I wanted to. I decided it would make sense to go upstairs on the track; I wouldn’t get trampled.
So I found myself upstairs on the track. I tried to live stream video from my Facebook page, but it kept buffering, so it wasn’t really worth it.
I had a nice bird’s-eye-view, but the acoustics were horrible; I could barely hear anything. I heard music, but I couldn’t hear the words. What I did hear, though, was good.
I’ll have to go back and check out his music.
Towards the end of the semester in my Introduction to International Film class, we watched Slumdog Millionaire. I was excited to see it because I remembered one of the songs, Jai Ho. I was too young to see the movie when it first came out, but they used the song in a promo for the soap opera All my Children, which I did watch. Two of the main characters, Kendall and Zach Slater, got pretty heated on the couch during the song. I’m not sure I ever saw the episode, but I never forgot the song.
I didn’t think I’d have to wait until the end of the end of the movie to hear it though. That was kind of disappointing. I didn’t know there were two different versions either. In the commercial for All my Children, they used the English version by the Pussycat Dolls. In the movie, they used an Indian version of it. I like both versions, but I’m partial to the English version. Who knew All my Children would come back into my life? I’d stopped watching it ages ago, and I thought it was gone forever once it was cancelled. Apparently not.
