Our Talent Show performance for Candidates Gone Wild on April 17 was successful beyond my wildest dreams. The incomparable Storm Large made it work SO well. Imagine that, super-nerd sings with super-star!. See the video here. Storm and I adapted the ABBA song, "Fernando", with these lyrics (not all of which were actually sung at the event):
Storm: Can you hear the crowd, Amanda? I remember long ago another silly night like this…
Amanda: In the center light, my friend Storm, singing songs of World War One amidst the evening's stupid skits. How I love this crazy town and all the folks who came to smile for me tonight!
Storm: We know you do, Amanda, every hour every minute working for the good of all.
Amanda: As a City Council member, it's not so much a job but more a passion for my home. And I'm not ashamed to sing this song and ask you for your vote on May 15.
BOTH: There is something in the air tonight, the stars are bright, Amanda .
They are shining there for you and me and this City, Amanda.
Storm: Though I'm pretty sure that you can't lose, my vote you'll get.
BOTH: If I get to do the same again, I'll be your friend, Amanda.
Yes If I get to do the same again, I'll be your friend, Amanda.
Both slowly, If we get to do the same again, I'll be your friend, Amanda.
