The Spirit of the Weekend

img_2962-1If you separated out the righteous anger we saw yesterday and focused just on the sense of hope and yearning there expressed, you could look to this song to sum that feeling up. I love that the singers are young and that the boy is seen scratching his leg just before the song starts. I love the smooth columnar strength of the darker girl’s thigh and the frail courage of all clear and mortal voices. I love the way a fourth singer  responds to the gesture of beckoning offered part way through the song. I feel beckoned by this well-known round myself. Watch it here –  and see if you don’t find your own self singing along.
