The Gang of Five

It certainly has been a crazy year, hasn’t it?  Well, thankfully, a new year is upon us and here at the Gang of Five forum we have a new year of showcases, prompts, and themes to get the new year started in the right way.  We wish you all a happy new year, and we look forward to what you have in store for us this year!

For the month of January we have a new character showcase.  Please warmly welcome Littlefoot's Mother! :)littlefoot The character showcase topic for this month can be found here.

Also keep in mind that the December and January prompts for the fanfic prompt challenge is now open.  We are doing things a bit differently this season and allowing for people to either fulfill a monthly prompt or a suggested prompt during each month.  I look forward to seeing what you all come up with! :)  The fanfic prompt rules and list of monthly prompts can be found here.

The Italian version of the TV series has its own intro song, even better than the original English one.

I fell in love with this song. Listen to this beauty :lol:

I understand Italian at a rudimentary level (which means not much), and from what I can tell the song is about discovering the beauty of the Enchanted Valley, a world of youth with wide horizons that never reach the sky, rivers and intense smells. A world everyone should discover for themselves (paraphrasing the end of the song). Can anyone translate the song completely? I'd very much appreciate it. :)

LOL, from what you say about the lyrics, it sounds like the lyrics to any Rhapsody of Fire song.

But to be honest, I think I prefer the English version, the one by Ladysmith Black Mambazo. I dunno what it is, but something about a combination of a fantasy series about dinosaurs, and a theme song done by an African acappella choir (usually a gospel choir, no less), just seems to...match.

Hey, the Italian intro is really nice. I'd even go as far as to say that i like the fact that i don't understand a word of that song. Singers' voices sound like inseparable part of the melody. Sweet. :)
