A SONG THAT YOU HAVE DANCED TO WITH YOUR BEST FRIEND
A few years ago I was in Tulsa, OK for a concert. “It’s Keisha, Hasty, not Quiche- Ah” R corrected me. I never could remember how to pronounce her name. We actually found ourselves standing in line for this concert twice because the first time we lounged in line for more than 4 hours before finding out the concert had been cancelled due to storms. I don’t actually remember which night we decided to go to the club after the concert but regardless me, R, and the rest of our friends decided to go to a local club to have a few drinks and dance.
That night we were happy. Sometime during the night R and I happened to be dancing on the stage being silly with a few of our friends when Lady Gaga came over the speakers. The song was “Alejandro, or Born This Way, or Judas”. Ahhhh see these are the memories that I am losing. I hear any Gaga song now and I remember this night. I am pretty sure the song was “Judas” so we will just go with that for this story. There is some irony in here somewhere but I digress.
If we had been filming a movie this would have been that scene where the viewers would laugh and think, wow this is corny!, but they would enjoy it anyway because it would make them smile. R had choreographed a routine in Zumba for all of these songs and when “Judas” began to play everyone left the stage except for us. I was behind R because he was the star and I was just a shy embellishment. We did the routine and broke out in laughter because we realized it was a re-mix and had to improvise, we bowed, people cheered, and it was a really cool moment.
JUDAS- LADY GAGA
