Maybe you did not know that CCNEPal had a theme song. Here is one version of it.
I write this the day I put batch thirteen in the 2013 record books – there are only three batches remaining in the ambitious teaching schedule.
When we finished the first batch, waaaay back in May, (when I has just met the first 30 of what has grown to be a list of 411 students… the final number may be 570 or so) we were treated to a dinner, after which the nurses danced. I had not heard “Hookah Bar” before then, but I knew immediately it would be the theme song for summer 2013.
This tune is from Bollywood and wikipedia says “it’s a universal anthem of youth in South Asia, achieving a kind of cult status.”
Of course, the signature dance move that accompanies it, requiring a supple pelvis, probably propelled it to the top as well…….
And now – Everest Brass Baja covers the tune. Sudarshan Pariyar blazing away; thundering percussion; low brass playing as if possessed by a single mind.
Wow. I laughed until tears came out of my eyes. what a great summer I have had. I will be teaching a lot in the last two weeks. I don’t mind. everyone has been so wonderful to me…..
Yes – CCNEPal 2013 has been worth every minute!
