Pantala Naga Pampa/Rapunzel
Live at the Gorge

You honestly can’t have one without the other. It’s kind of like peanut butter and jelly. That’s why I’m glad that these are on the same track on this release from The Gorge. Even though they are technically regarded as two separate songs, I always view ‘Pantala Naga Pampa’ (which means “I have a snake in my pants” in Tamil slang {a South Indian/Sri Lankan language}) as an intro to ‘Rapunzel’.

One of things about playing a song live as much as the band plays ‘Rapunzel’ is that without a doubt the song develops a tightness that only grows and that can be heard every time the song played.
