Rain Dance



Everybody wang chung tonight! Er, I mean, everybody rain dance! What moves! I'm sure all Native Americans are proud of this interpretation of their sacred rituals.

I love the fact that they got Darth Vader to do the spoke-word intro.

There sure is a lot of energy and joy in it. With such a big fancy church you expect there to be more people there in the congregation though.

This, most likely, gets better return on the dollar than, let's say, Shall We Gather at the River.

This slide in the Church began when the Bible was translated to the vernacular. It was just a short step to introducing that devil-begotten rock 'n' roll music. WWJP? Lead guitar?

It might have been the Germans with that instrument of the devil, guitar, that was first!

At least they didn't call them INDIANS! LOL

Am I the only one that sees they are using ASL? Sign Language for the deaf?

@Rusty - I just saw this and was about to post the same thing. Some of the movements are exaggerated as pronunciations/phrasing is in vocal singing and some are stylized as there are not signs for every single word and fingerspelling them would interrupt the flow of the piece and be too difficult for an audience to see. Many churches and schools have "sign choirs" for deaf people to participate in. They can keep the beat by feeling the vibrations through the floor. The loudest place I ever was was a party with a group of deaf people--they cranked the music - wired through an amp - up to "11" (Spinal Tap anyone?) so they could dance. I couldn't take it for very long.

Oh yes! Let's all laugh at how the deaf communicate!
