No sooner do I get a new blog idea/concept up and going, that I forget about it. Remember how I said I was going to do Musical Monday’s? Well I didn’t! Because this Monday, I didn’t blog about music at all!
So continuing on with my Adam Pascal obsession…
I’ve seen this show… a lot. This is the show where I actually met Adam Pascal. It’s an Elton Rice jam, so the music is poppy, happy, and even a little schmaltzy at times, but very singable. Sometimes the lyrics don’t exactly make sense or are difficult to figure out the meaning, but hey, it’s just a musical!
Aida follows the story of Aida(Heather Headly) (duh), Radames (Adam Pascal), and Amneris (Sherie Rene Scott) in a love triangle. Aida is a Nubian princess who is forced into slavery by Radames. Radames is engaged to be married to Amneris, the flighty, quirky Egyptian princess, but soon falls for Aida. Radames must make the life altering decision to either marry Amneris and be set for life, but unhappy or confess his love for Aida and be buried alive…harsh right? SPOILER ALERT Radames confesses to Amneris that he doesn’t love her, but he does love Aida. Aida and Radames are thrown in a tomb and buried alive! Dramatic right?
My favorite songs from Aida are:
Love it! I love Adam’s voice in this!
My Strongest Suit
This song is great, because it is so ridiculous (and I mean that in a good way)! I’m sure all Egyptian princesses just had a runway in their bedroom and strut their stuff all over the place.
Written in the Stars
I mean come on, beautiful voices!
Okay, I could sit here and watch videos all day, but a girl’s gotta have priorities…like eating!
Next time maybe a little Chorus Line or West Side Story??
