#SongLyricsSunday: I Burn For You

I am trying to get back to blogging after two weeks of being here and there. Just needed to catch up on sleep this weekend and had to prepare for the new school year, which starts tomorrow!

I really enjoy participating in the Song Lyrics Sunday challenge two weeks ago. So, I am going to try to continue this every week! This week theme is “Burn/Fire/Flame,” as suggested by the host Jim at A Unique Title For Me, with this post.

Music Moves Me Monday: Music with the Fox

This week’s 4M is a free choice week. Since a local adaptation of James Brock’s rendition of Aesop’s Fables, which I am a part of, will open this weekend only at a local playhouse here in Nagoya, I dedicate this 4M to the fox.

Everyone knows about the “Tortoise and the Hare” from the Aesop’s Fables collection! But have you heard “The Fox and the Sour Grapes”? Or even the “Donkey and the Lion Skin”? Or perhaps, “The Fox and the Crow”?

Why did I choose the fox for this 4M? Well, that is because I am playing the character of the Fox in one of the fables. I also play the role of Betty who is a bit of a snob and wants everything her way, think Gretchen Wieners from Mean Girls or a snobby rich girl from Clueless. (Note: This play features humans transforming into different animals, It’s also an ensemble play.) I can’t reveal the whole story (but you can find parts of the play on Google Books) as you have to come to Nagoya to see it! Of course, I can post the highlight video when it comes out.

Some knew the band since their formation in the late 60s. Some, like myself, grew up listening to the band’s songs thanks to their parents playing the songs on the car radio. Recently, a whole new generation was introduced to Fleetwood Mac when the Marvel film Garden of the Galaxy II included their hit song “The Chain” on the movie’s soundtrack. Thanks to Marvel, a new generation would at least know one song from this legendary band.

If I would conduct a poll on the streets of America and ask the question “Who is in Fleetwood Mac?”, many would answer Stevie Nicks. But, how about the other members? Stevie Nicks did have a prolific solo career in the 80s. But what about the other members, do they too have a successful and well-off solo career?
