So this weekend I am going to see the musical Wicked, which I’m sure everyone’s heard of, but just in case, it’s a sort of origin story of The Wicked Witch of the West, based on a pretty good book with the same name by author Gregory Macguire. And because I have an odd sense of humor, I thought it would be funny to post up some of the lyrics from one of the songs, “Defying Gravity” along with photos of flying armbars. I tried to link the sources where I could, but really I just googled “flying armbars” and this is what came up. And here’s the full song, just in case anyone is curious.
We’ll see how this goes: enjoy everyone and have a great weekend!
Something has changed within me, something is not the same, I’m through with playing by the rules of someone else’s game/ Too late for second guessing, too late to go back to sleep, it’s time to trust my instincts, close my eyes, and leap!
It’s time to try defying gravity/ I think I’ll try defying gravity and you can’t pull me down
I’m through accepting limits, ’cause someone says they’re so/ some things I cannot change, but until I try I’ll never know!
As someone told me lately, “Ev’ryone deserves a chance to fly”
Tell them how I am defying gravity, I’m flying high, defying gravity! and soon I’ll match them in renown,
And nobody in all of Oz, no wizard that there is or was, is ever gonna bring me down!
