John Green’s moving rendition of “Ya Bamba Was Off Side”
The Fault In Our Stars- Troye Sivan
I will long remember when I was on the set of the TFiOS movie and Frank, the Transportation Captain, was like, “I loved your book, but I really loved that song about your book by the Australian guy Troye.”
All my preconceptions—about Frank, about Troye, about the people working on the movie—were upended.
What a magical week it has been. What a gift Troye has given us and the children at PMH. If you don’t know the song…enjoy.
I’d heard brief mentions of this song through comments and what not but this is the first time I’ve seen the video and seen what Troye is doing with the popularity of it.
Princess Margaret Hospital is a very worthy cause, they do great work there with some very sick kids and I’ll always hold a particular esteem for them as my little sister has CF and so has spent a decent chunk of her life in and out of there.
So listen to the song, if you want to then buy it and please reblog this because, as Troye says, even if you don’t buy the song yourself the more people who see it the more people who will.
Thanks for reading,
While my son Henry is very bright, he is also three and a half years old, so he rarely says things that really surprise me because I taught him all of the words he knows.
