Episode #8 - The Powerful Play

As many of you know the name of our band was inspired by the 1989 Peter Weir film starring Robin Williams, Ethan Hawke, and Robert Sean Leonard. One of the first songs we created was “The Powerful Play”. It is the only song to date that has been directly inspired by the film. The lyric we used was derived from the scene in which Mr. Keating explains what poetry is all about. Moreover he explains how important it is to live a creative life that is filled with romance and meaning by quoting from Walt Whitman’s poem “O me! O life!” from Whitman’s 1900 edition of Leaves of Grass.
