Things We’re Bringing Back

Original air date: Monday, November 03, 2014
Episode Description:

While Malayna and Stacy were busy celebrating bringing things back to life, they thought this would be a good time to look at other things that have been brought back. Remakes of popular films and TV series, fashions from the past, reboots and retooled fan favorites and mash-ups. Is everything old new again? Should it be? We’ll discuss and see if we can find new ways to look at it!

Connection, Oneness, spirits, animals, nature, each other

  • Bring it Back, Sing it Back – Moloko
  • Evanescence – Bring Me To Life – “Wake me up inside”

Justin Timberlake already brought Sexy back in 2006, so that’s not on us.

My Bonnie – traditional Scottish folk song, and connects to OUTLANDER!

The origin of the song is often suggested that the subject of the song may be Charles Edward Stuart (‘Bonnie Prince Charlie’):[1] after the defeat of the Prince at the Battle of Culloden in 1746 and his subsequent exile, his Jacobite supporters could have sung the tune in his honour; and thanks to the ambiguity of the term “bonnie”, which can refer to a woman as well as to a man, they could pretend it was a love song.
