Once upon a time, DJs Michael Mangiaforte and Michael Brown created the Shake Rattle & Roll remix of Pat Benatar's 'We Belong'. It kicked ass at the time then faded into memory. Thank you to Jayson Leahy for unearthing the vinyl and Phillip Bhullar for giving it a 2020 refresh. The message means more than ever - we DO belong together - and 30 flaggers embraced that with gusto for this month's video. We may be separated by geography and the virus, but we can still flag together. This month we celebrate a community of flaggers that know the meaning of
When Leif decided to return to NZ to be with his
husband we felt it was important to give
him the proper sendoff.
The attached video is our tribute to him.
How we moved from
Flagging IN the Desert
Flagging FROM the Desert
A presentation to the Flagging Virtual Studio
on August 20, 2020
With the incredible help of DJ Brian Norwood, the song selected for this month is called ‘AMERICA’.
This song has an energizing beat and the lyrics are selected from speeches by Barack Obama - very poignant when you consider what we are witnessing around us. We hope the song and your performances leave everyone - flaggers and fans alike - charged and ready for a more positive future.
For this video we focused on ‘home’. Take us to where you feel at home - safe, secure, nurtured. This song does not have lyrics, but since it’s titled HOME we added the flaggers words to amplify the message about
what ‘home’ means to them.
Pride Month was here, this time under very different circumstances. Because we cannot gather together as we traditionally would, Flaggers around the globe gathered as they could to express their heartfelt desires for everyone, everywhere: less hate and more Freedom.
Go spread some love however you can, today!
Song: Freedom by David Morales and Janice Robinson
with a remix by Susan Morabito
We had 40 flaggers from all over the country participate in this video. The song is by Peyton and certainly speaks to the need to look forward and know that
"Things Can Only Get Better".
We had a remix to lengthen the song so everyone could
participate, but you can purchase the original from the
various links at the end of the video.
DJ Brian Norwood extended the length of the song
"OK" by James Bluntso that it was long enough to accommodate the many videos that were contributed.
The lyrics say
"I really need you, I really need your love right now...
...I don't fear nothing when I hear you say
It's gonna be OK"
DJ Jerry Bonham did a remix and extended the song
"You're Beautiful" by Madagascar.
Flaggers across the country were invited to submit videos and we joined them together.
The lyrics say "we're all here together"
