Dance Into The Light Lyrics

A fantastic intro takes us into a powerful song with an almost constant bass drone. Drum trioles after the intro resemble those in Colours. River So Wide is a kind of musical brother to Lorenzo as both show a dominant African influence. It is hardly necessary to point out the terrific vocals. In the middle Stuermer plays a brilliant guitar solo that embodies his style: perfect technique, but a bit soulless at times. At the end of the song Stuermer has a second opportunity to shine when he weaves a carpet of sounds from several guitars. Next to him we hear the full band without the brass. River So Wide picks up thoughts from Dance Into The Light: It is about the way into the light, albeit this time with a more global approach. People are divided by a wide river, and they ought to leave their stormy past behind and understand that it is high time for change, that this is perhaps the last chance to build a bridge across the river to make a better present and future for us because, after all, we are all equal, so let us cross the river that divides us.

Nothin you can't handle nothin you ain't gotPut your money on the table and drive it off the lotTurn on that old lovelight turn a maybe to yesSame old schoolboy game got you into this mess yeahYou better get on back to townTo the sad sad truth the dirty lowdown

I was walkin' home one evenin'I know this takes some believin'I met a group of creatureswith the strangest lookin' featuresA poor ould dog and a worm and a weedand a fine ould pidgeon yes indeedDaddy longlegs jumped up spriteand danced a reelof the flickering lightRound we go, heel to the toeDaddy longlegs jumped up spriteand danced in a reelof the flickering lightOn his thin and wispy spindleshe was deft and he was nimble,His eyes were scientificand his dancin' was terrific.The rats and the worms they made a din and the nettles in the corner took it in,"Oh God" sez I,"tonight's the night we'll dance to the reel in the flickering light!"round we go, heel to the toe"Oh God" sez I,"tonight's the night we'll dance to the reel in the flickering light!"Then he looked at me directlywith two eyes that could dissect me,And he asked me in a whisper"Have you got any sisters?""Good God Almighty' sez I to himWhat sort of a man do you think I am?I've only one and she's not your type, she wouldn't dance a reel in the flickering light!"Round we go, heel to the toe"I've only one and she's not your type, she wouldn't dance a reel in the flickering light!"Says he"Does she come from another planet? Does she have a bee in her bonnet?Does she do her daily duties? You never know we might be suited."And the rats and the worms began to laugh and some of them started shufflin' off.We're goin' to have some fun tonight gettin' ready for the reel in the flickering light.Round we go, heel to the toeWe're goin' to have some fun tonight gettin' ready for the reel in the flickering light.I could see he had no scrupleswhen I looked into his pupils,They were purple or magenta like a statue during Lent."I'll go and get her right away""Good man" says he,"now don't delay,We're goin' to have some fun tonight." Then he flipped his legs in the flickering light.Round we go, heel to the toeWe're goin' to have some fun tonight." Then he flipped his legs in the flickering light.Then up stepped a red carnationand they gave her an ovation.She was warm and enchantin'as she slowly started dancin'.And the bright auld pigeonpeeld his eyeand the nettles and the weedsbegan to sigh,Daddy Longlegs said "My, oh my, are we ready for the reel in the flickering light?"Round we go, heel to the toeDaddy Longlegs said "My, oh my,are we ready for the reel in the flickering light?"She was gentle, she was charmin'and I heard him call her Darlin'.He was graceful as a whisper on his delicate legs of silver.And the rats and the wormswere still as miceand the poor auld pigeonsaid "that's nice"A shimmering veil of a lovely brideand they danced to the reel in the flickering light.Round we go, heel to the toeA shimmering veil of a lovely brideand they danced to the reel in the flickering light.

Scenic art is an exciting theatrical field focusing on the creation of the "finished" visual picture onstage. Scenic Artists paint, carve, sculpt, texture, and faux finish large-scale works, often combining materials in creative ways to achieve the designer's vision. This introductory class will focus on basic techniques and move into more advanced work as the semester progresses. There will be a brief introduction to color theory, working with muslin, basic texturing techniques, and then focus on fundamentals such as glazing, spattering, spraying, light and shadow, etc. Students will learn to apply these fundamental techniques to various projects throughout the semester. Focus will be on the creation of large-scale scenic elements that maintain their visual integrity when viewed from a distance.

This is a concentrated hands-on training course that quickly introduces students to scenery, costume, and property construction, along with lighting and sound production. Students are shown the stages, shops, tools, equipment, safety procedures, and some of the basic techniques involved in producing a live performance. The course is required for all theatre arts majors. Course requirements outside of class include a mandatory tool qualification, and the attendance at one technical rehearsal and two performances. Theatre faculty teaches the course.

Many field hollers are preserved in recordings made in the mid-twentieth century when ethnologists took steps to preserve the tradition before it died. In the late 1800s wandering singer-guitarists in the Deep South began to perform in segregated bars, train stations, on street corners, or for community events, dances, and picnics, where they played proto-blues songs such as "Make Me a Pallet on Your Floor." Unfortunately little is known about these early musicians. In 1907 ethnologist Howard Odum recorded some of them, but his recordings are lost. His work, however, establishes a strong link between these songs and the commercial blues of the 1920s. In 1925 he noted that many of the lyrics that he had recorded and transcribed nearly two decades earlier were appearing in contemporary popular blues songs. The commercial blues emerged as artists such as composer W. C. Handy and singer Gertrude "Ma" Rainey, both of whom began their careers in minstrelsy, merged black folk traditions with theatrical traditions and formalized the conventions of the blues (see Unit 6). Many white communities were isolated from the popular music of Tin Pan Alley. Sometimes, as in the case of embittered southerners in the years after the Civil War, this was a deliberate choice. In other cases isolation resulted from geography, as communities in Appalachia and in rural areas of the North and South simply did not have access to current popular music. Instead, in these areas people continued to play and sing in the folk style descended from traditional music of the British Isles. Some songs like "Barbara Allen" and "Hangman, Slack Your Rope" were direct descendants of that tradition. "John Henry" (a song shared between white and Black traditions) and "Wreck of the Old 97" are examples of new songs based on real events written in the old ballad style of four-line verses. In addition to the old ballads, many rural Americans enjoyed instrumental tunes on fiddle or banjo. Fiddle tunes descended from the British isles, but the banjo was an instrument brought to America by enslaved Africans. By the turn of the century the guitar was the favored accompaniment and harmony was the favorite vocal style. All three instruments might be combined into string bands to perform instrumental dance tunes such as "Arkansas Traveler," "Old Joe Clark," and "Cotton-Eyed Joe." Rural music of these traditions was destined to be called "hillbilly music" when it first hit records and radio in the 1920s. From that popular beginning, it would evolve into the "country and western" style that developed in parallel to northern popular music (for more on hillbilly music and country and western, see Units 6 and 7).

The social and economic changes sweeping the nation left many people to face difficult times. Songs became catalysts for change. Their emotional impact could express frustration, bring hidden injustice to light, warn of danger, or rally for change. The emotional content of the songs affected a listener more directly and effectively and thus was more persuasive than mere speech. Social reformers working during this era, usually motivated by their religious beliefs, used three strategies with considerable overlap: encouraging individuals to change their ways (evangelism, social gospel, temperance), providing social services to the poor and sick (settlement houses, Salvation Army), and lobbying for legislative and economic policy changes. All of these strategies used music. The Temperance Movement lobbied for laws prohibiting alcohol consumption and called for individuals to "sign the pledge" to not drink alcohol. Temperance ballads warning of the dire consequences of drinking were popular in the East and tended to be especially sentimental, including dying children, shivering, starving mothers, and drunken fathers. Children were often pressed into service to moralize, as in the songs "Father's a Drunkard, and Mother is Dead," Henry Clay Work's "Lillie of the Snow Storm," and "Come Home, Father" in which a young girl beseeches her father to come home to say goodbye to her dying little brother: 041b061a72
