The Defamation of Strickland Banks

It's time for the last song in The Defamation of Strickland Banks post series. It's called What You Gonna Do and is No 13 on the album. It wasn't released as a single.

New evidence has come to light in the rape case (Strickland was wrongfully convicted of rape) and there is a retrial. This time Strickland's girlfriend is not in court supporting him. He sings that after what he's been through, he is less bothered about whether he's released or left in jail to serve the rest of his sentence but the jury should hurry up and make a decision soon. The album ends on a cliffhanger so you don't know if he was set free or not. I like to think he was released! :)




Hope you enjoyed the series! :) Check out all the other posts here:

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)


First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.



Turkish and Arabic Songs

Since my belly dance classes recently started again after a break over the summer and I'm also going to the belly dance event South Coast Shimmy tonight. I thought I'd post a round-up of Turkish and Arabic songs, plus a couple of songs I haven't mentioned before. :)
