Two songs today, on the 70th day of Project 194. (If you missed it, check out today’s post in which I take stock of the first ten weeks of my song-sharing marathon; I’m now more than a third of the way through!)
In yesterday’s post, I explained how Anna learns that a “Vitamin A deficiency” was the likely cause of her lack of imagination, and how her doctor, Amelia Earhart (yup, the legendary aviatrix), offers to take her on a therapeutic adventure in her aeroplane. In a magical transformation, they go from “in the air” to “ON the air,” and Anna finds herself a contestant on the Answer Man Game Show:
Anna’s ability to always have the right answers doesn’t seem to be of much help in this surrealistic contest, which involves a volunteer from the audience. Eventually, she and Amelia are back in the air once more, but not for long; soon, the plane crashes and Anna finds herself alone in what turns out to be Africa.
If I had only known,
Safe at home I would have stayed!
This thicket’s so very thick,
The trick is finding your way.
But if I don’t make it quick,
Some creature might pick up the track of me
And make a snack of me!
A is for agony!
Won’t someone rescue me?
Amelia, what do I do?
I can’t begin to imagine….
(ECHO: Begin to imagine…)
If you’re the least bit intrigued by these little snippets of songs, you owe it to yourself to watch the video of A is for Anything that’s on the site here. The ways in which the show interacts with its audience and unfolds as a live performance need to be seen to be appreciated!
