A Ginger Rogers fix



Ahhhhhh, I have always loved the idea of being able to dance eloquently. For me, this is not one of my talents. I have mastered the side to side step, along with some 'sprinkler' thrown in for fun, maybe a 'stir the pot' if I am really, REALLY feeling sexy...Hopefully you can visualize these fine dance steps that I have mastered, and understand that my artistic attributes do not include much movement whatsoever!
We all know of the famous dancer Ginger Rogers...So elegant, and beautiful...Sophisticated and STRONG. She inspired me in one of my songs off of my latest album. I showed what I had written so far to a friend of mine Adrienne Pierce. I sent her a little video of Sammy (my son) and I working on the song, asking her if she could write something for it as well...She came back shortly with some fantastic lyrics, really tying in the whole ' Ginger Rogers ' theme and added a funky 3/4 waltz part to it....
Here is the song if you would like to listen to it:...hmmmmmm I think it needs a video.
Here are some images of what comes to mind for me when I think of the song...I will put them aside the lyrics. If any of you feel so inclined as to send me your thoughts on visuals for this video, I would GLADLY add your name in the credits....Give it a spin!!!


Ginger Rogers- C.Miller/A.Pierce 2013
I'VE NEVER FELT THIS WAY BEFORE 
I'VE NEVER SPENT SO MUCH TIME WITH ANYONE 
YOU LAUGH AT ALL MY SILLY JOKES 
YOU EVEN LET ME WEAR YOUR JEANS 
I WAS A SOLOIST THEN CAME YOU 
I'D NEVER LET ANYBODY LEAD
BUT YOU SEEMED SO TRUE 
I WANT TO BE THE ONE YOU NEED 
CHORUS: 
AND I WANT TO BE THE ONE YOU GO TO WHEN YOU 
NEED ANYTHING 
YOUR CLEVER PARTNER ON THE SCENE 
GINGER ROGERS ON THE SILVER SCREEN
WE'LL PLAN THE STEPS WE TAKE TOMORROW
BUT TONIGHT WE DANCE ON AIR 
OUR DISTANT MEMORY IS SORROW 
WE'LL BE AS HAPPY AS WE DARE AS HAPPY AS WE DARE 
CHORUS: 
AND I WANT TO BE THE ONE YOU GO TO WHEN YOU 
NEED ANYTHING 
YOUR CLEVER PARTNER ON THE SCENE 
GINGER ROGERS ON THE SILVER SCREEN

BRIDGE: 
123 123 YOU'RE THE ONE FOR ME 
123 123 I KNOW YOU CAN SEE 
123 123 THIS WAS MEANT TO BE  
CHORUS: 
AND I WANT TO BE 
THE ONE YOU GO TO WHEN YOU 
NEED ANYTHING 
YOUR CLEVER PARTNER ON THE SCENE 
 AND I WANT TO BE THE ONE YOU GO TO 
WHEN YOU NEED ANYTHING 
INTEGRAL TO THE CLOSING SCENE 
GINGER ROGERS ON THE SILVER SCREEN

I was thinking about love when I wrote this song, and how I wanted to be that magical partner, the silent partner in crime, the other half of an infamous duo...You know like Batman and Robin...Or Ernie and Bert, or Frida and Diego, But I was also dreaming of love like a 1935 screenplay...Exciting,Exhilarating,NEW,romantic and Eloquent.
Everything that my dancing is NOT!
So now I am thinking of a video.....hmmmmmmmmmmmmm
 

I would love to here your ideas....Or your Ginger Rogers moments!
