Happy anniversary, Hoppers! This is the 50th edition of the Tarot Blog Hop and to celebrate, our wrangler Jay Cassels has come up with a super glam idea:
PAIR TAROT AND MUSICALS!!!!!!!
and because these are two of my favourite things, I said to myself:
Crikey, I almost missed the deadline!!!!!!
In such a short time, what could I do? Well, I decided to keep it simple. My favourite musical? Elisabeth, without a doubt, although the “Tanz der Vampire” (Dance of the Vampires) makes a close second place. My favourite tarot card? Death, of course, what else? Pair them together and what a coincidence! Death is a central character in Elisabeth!
See him dancing with Sissi, with German lyrics but English subtitles:
That’s all well and good but now watch it in Hungarian!! The guy singing Death was so popular he was even invited to sing in Japan! 😀
And this is my favourite song from the whole musical. Its title would translate to something like ‘The shadows grew long today”… Death tries to entice Sissi’s son… and of course he wins. 😉
Comment your favourite Death themed songs! Now hop on, I need to do some singing on the top of my voice! Happy hopping!
