Major Arcana on DVD: http://sunspot.bandcamp.com/merch/major-arcana-dvd

A combination of theater, audience participation, multimedia stage show, and rock concert party, Sunspot’s “Major Arcana” links live performances of their songs with the story of Joe, a recent college graduate who lives most of his life online. The audience sees Joe through the eyes of the people he meets in the digital world, especially an Internet Psychic whose Tarot readings form the heart of the story.

This song is “Scott Bakula” and as Joe is starting to feel a little more confident, he’s thinking of maybe trying to get his old girlfriend back. The card represented here is “The Empress” Reversed – Possible domestic problems, financial difficulties, lack of affection and achievement. Creative blocks and possible problems with a relationship. Infertility, sterility or promiscuity and/or unwanted pregnancy. Yeah, that’s as horrible as it sounds. Joe is being an idiot, much like the character in this song who was trying to compete with his girlfriend’s idea of a fictional character.

Sunspot’s “Major Arcana” tour was about creating a completely new type of experience that’s personal like a rock concert has the emotional weight of a musical, that’s dynamic visually like a film, and has the depth of great literature. The band premiered the show at SXSW and took it on a tour of America’s East Coast, Midwest and South. Recorded at The Annex in Madison on the last night of their tour and is a complete live production specially recorded, along with tour videos, deleted scenes, bonus songs, a commentary track, and other special features. This DVD is the culmination of the tour and stage show: http://sunspot.bandcamp.com/merch/major-arcana-dvd

I used to watch Quantum Leap,
Every night with my girlfriend.
Al and Sam, they leaped through time,
And I felt like they were my best friends.

Ziggy said there’s a 98 percent,
Chance of a broken heart.

Scott Bakula,
Never played Dracula,
Laid down the smackula on the bad guys.
Well, he was honest and sharing,
Loving and caring,
The kind of guy who would always do the right thing.
Clever and handsome,
And so friggin’ sensitive,
And I’m not Scott.

He was sweet enough to tame the fire,
In that self-empowered Murphy Brown chick,
I even bought Lord of Illusions,
Even though that movie kinda sucked.

Ziggy said there’s a 98 percent,
Chance that the ending’s sad.

Scott Bakula,
Never smoked crackula,
Played quarterbackula in Necessary Roughness.
Well, he was honest and sharing,
Loving and caring,
The kind of guy who would always do the right thing.
Clever and handsome,
And so friggin’ sensitive,
And I’m not Scott.

He’s nice enough to play a gay guy,
He’s cool enough to star in sci-fi,
He’s man enough to helm a starship,
And I’m the type of dude who would feel up that Vulcan chick.

Ziggy said there’s a 98 percent,
Chance that I’m a prick.

I’ll never be Scott Bakula.
No one can love Scott Bakula can love you.
He possesses all the traits,
That I sorely lackula.
Sometimes I just want to,
Punch him in the sackula,
Because I’m not Scott.
