New Ashes to Ashes music video: The Wizard and I

Title: The Wizard and I (download here)
Fandom: Ashes to Ashes; S1
Music: The Wizard and I from Wicked (music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, performed by Idina Menzel)
Stats: DivX (48.9MB) and WMV (26.9MB), 3:19
They're Oz's favorite team.

Hi, have some crack! Oh, I argued with myself about this one -- I got the idea way back whenever while watching the S1 finale and was all: TOO CRACKY, SELF (and also? u r drunk). But then later (soberly) on, I kept thinking of ways in which it was undeniably true and I caved. Though then I was delayed by various real life stuff (already chronicled here to some degree, so let's not delve again) and it took longer than it should have.

What really kept me on board beyond the crack aspects are the darker parts of the song (Elphaba's vision, which is quite true in a twisted way...this works for Alex as well) and how they tie into A2A. The song is cut and restructured significantly and I even got to play with vocal extraction in order to create the few seconds of intro that open the vid (which are actually not instrumental in the song).

When I meet the Wizard
Once I prove my worth
And then I meet the Wizard
What I've waited for since...since birth
And with all his Wizard wisdom
By my looks, he won't be blinded
Do you think the Wizard is dumb?
Or, like Munchkins, so small-minded?
No! He'll say to me,
"I see who you truly are
A girl on whom I can rely"
And that's how we'll begin
The Wizard and I

Once I'm with the Wizard
My whole life will change
'Cuz once you're with the Wizard
No one thinks you're strange
No father is not proud of you,
No sister acts ashamed
And all of Oz has to love you
When by the Wizard you're acclaimed
And this gift or this curse
I have inside
Maybe at last I'll know why
Oh, what a pair we'll be
The Wizard and I
Yes, what a pair we'll be
The Wizard and...

My future is unlimited
And I've just had a vision
Almost like a prophecy
I know -- it sounds truly crazy
And true, the vision's hazy
But I swear, someday there'll be
A celebration throughout Oz
That's all to do with me!

And I'll stand there with the Wizard
Feeling things I've never felt
And though I'd never show it
I'll be so happy, I could...melt!
And so it will be
For the rest of my life
And I'll want nothing else
Till I die
Held in such high esteem
When people see me, they will scream
For half of Oz's fav'rite team:
The Wizard
And I

All feedback is appreciated times one billion. Yeah, that much!
