Speaking of vidding...

When I first heard this song ("Spanish Dancer" by Patti Scialfa) several years ago, I thought it would be perfect for a Buffy/Angel vid. I just listened to it again, and I think the narrator is too timid for Buffy. But the images seem so perfect for a vampire vid. I wonder if there's another vampire universe which would work better?



SPANISH DANCER

Oh mama there's this Spanish dancer
Whose steps I follow when he comes near
The red dress of temptation
Over a long black slip of fear
Will I fall beneath the shadow
Of some broken cross
My arms emptied and all my treasures lost
Still like that Spanish dancer
I throw my roses down for him
Across these beds of darkness
He opens his arms and gathers them in

Oh mama the bridges were burning
Over a river black and cold
But I walked when love commanded me
Up to the edges of his soul
But I'm still frightened of that dark divide
Will I gain entrance or be denied
Still like that Spanish dancer
I throw my roses down for him
Across these beds of darkness
He opens his arms and gathers them in

Oh mama when you were a young girl
Did you ever love a man so much
As if he were some fantastic jewel
That you should never be worthy of
But all those illusions strip and fall
And he is just a man after all
And just like that Spanish dancer
I throw my roses down for him
Across these beds of darkness
He opens his arms and gathers them in
Just like that Spanish dancer
I throw my roses down for him
Across these beds of darkness
He opens his arms and gathers them in
Just like that Spanish dancer I
Just like that Spanish dancer I
Just like that Spanish dancer I...

You're right, that would be perfect for a vampire vid - or an Inquisitor from the Spanish Inquisition. But...no one expects the Spanish Inquisition! (g).
