Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from April 9, 2021 Options

Bronwyn Bishop's avatar View Bronwyn Bishop's profile Options

Musical theater from off the beaten path. Obscure and unusual show tunes from within the canon and without, flops, failures, and the newest works from up-and-coming artists—plus tried-and-true hits. Also, occasional appearances from songs that are not show tunes (but only if they go really well with show tunes).

Hi all! Are we on the Steam? (The song list days Goldfinger).

Don't go sitting under the apple tree...

Or did I just miss Goldfinger...?

Never mind...
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:16pm doctorjazz:

Nice set...😇😕
Avatar 🎭 7:16pm Listener Gregory:

@doctorjazz: Do not adjust your set. We control the sound and vision.
Avatar 7:17pm Andrew Hollywood:

It was pure witchcraft, doctorjazz.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:19pm doctorjazz:

I Got fooled by knowing every tune, which NEVER HAPPENS here, couldn't be Acid Jazz Hands.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Webhamster Henry:

California Nights has good chord changes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi everyone!!! :D
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Webhamster Henry:

In Acid Disco Hands mode again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I was delighted to discover that this essential disco track was written by the most famous German musical theatre songwriting team
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:28pm diciassette:

I like this disco mode!
Avatar 🎭 7:28pm Listener Gregory:

I will register my official protest against this song, which I actually heard 10,000 times when it was a hit and was tempted to kill myself.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:29pm doctorjazz:

Ok,don't know Fly Robin Fly, feel at home 😀
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Webhamster Henry:

Day jobs of the Musical writers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Bronwyn Bishop:

What a great day job! I dream of writing a pop song someday
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Webhamster Henry:

I missed the first set because I was writing a fake folk song for a podcast.
  7:42pm Jeff g. via app:

Oof missed some good ones. That’ll teach me not to go food shopping. Hi, BC and acid hands.
  7:43pm Jeff g. via app:

Sorry BB!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:45pm diciassette:

BC adopted BB! If I remember right..
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Webhamster Henry:

Bronwyn is the Annette of WFMU.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:48pm diciassette:

I think the Pink Shoelaces song would pair very well with a Yellow Polkadot Bikini song
Avatar 🎭 7:49pm Roberto:

Somewhere, Rik Mayall is smiling.
Avatar 🎭 7:51pm Listener Gregory:

Dodie Stevens is a new one for me.
Avatar 8:01pm Andrew Hollywood:

Are you are? That is the question.
Avatar 🎭 8:03pm Listener Gregory:

I saw the George M. Cohan biopic as a child, and it made a strong impression on me. Maybe it starred James Cagney???? (That is a guess.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: Am I? I love that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi Jeff G!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: It did star James Cagney! And the musical about him starred Joel Grey
Avatar 🎭 8:13pm Listener Gregory:

Crossword help. "Show biz hit." Four letters, begins with B. Anyone??
Avatar 🎭 8:15pm Listener Gregory:

"It was a very good year" sounds like it should be in a musical. Sinatra sang this a lot in later years; very dramatic.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Webhamster Henry:

The standard WFMU version is sung by Shatner.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: The first time I heard this song it was being played in a rock version by a female singer/guitarist, I forget her name, but I remember it was really intense and affecting when sung somewhat angrily by a middle-aged woman
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Bronwyn Bishop:

my favorite thing about THIS song is that it's so cool and psychedelic and was written by uber-square Hal Hackady, lyricist of SNOOPY!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: I played that version once in the medley with his crazy Hamlet Soliloquy!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:23pm doctorjazz:

The Shatner covers are great/terrible.
Avatar 🎭 8:28pm Listener Gregory:

Where is the hive mind??? "Show biz hit," four letters, B____. If it were a flop, I could say "bomb." But it's not.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:30pm doctorjazz:

Fun fact-i used to deliver kosher barbecue chicken in high school to Barry Manilow's mom (who was very proud of her boychik).
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:34pm diciassette:

WOW
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:34pm diciassette:

what a belt *that* was
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:37pm diciassette:

tous les deux !
Avatar 🎭 8:38pm Listener Gregory:

This is a real show of sad looking-back songs, including Milord.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@doctorjazz: That is delightful!!! If I was Barry Manilow's mom I would also be very proud of my boychik
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: Interesting...not intentional! I guess when the theatre lads write pop songs they write them about nostalgia
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:40pm diciassette:

Dino Martini!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Bronwyn Bishop:

ok so in the talk set I'm going to mention "that's amore," which I was supposed to play but it didn't make it into the mix for some reason
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Bronwyn Bishop:

the radio gods didn't want to make you all hear it again lol
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:44pm diciassette:

the radio gods work in mysterious ways
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:44pm diciassette:

much to our delight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm northguineahills:

here, and my voice is sheer!
Avatar 🎭 8:50pm Listener Gregory:

Milord ends with this "shadow of the street" saying that we should all dance! And sing! And the song seems to get upbeat. But it's really a dance of desperation, and she will return to her drab, sad existence at its end.
Not to be a downer, of course.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:51pm diciassette:

Moose Charlap!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:52pm diciassette:

*whomp*
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:56pm doctorjazz:

Great show, thanks Bronwyn! Great weekend all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Bronwyn Bishop:

this song is dumb, but bob merrill is a member of the musical theatre squad and we love him
Avatar 🎭 8:57pm Listener Gregory:

How Much Is That Doggie is the first pop song I can specifically remember hearing as a child. However, I wasn't alive in 1953, so I suspect my memory is from my grandmother singing it to me.
Sob! You've got me all verklempt, Bronwyn!
Very clever show. Thanks!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:57pm diciassette:

Thank you Bronwyn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Thank YOU doctorjazz!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:58pm doctorjazz:

(Love the Doggie single cover).
Avatar 🎭 8:58pm Listener Gregory:

@BB, Merrill probably made more money from that than any of his "real" songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Thank YOU Gregory and diciassette!!!
Avatar 8:58pm Andrew Hollywood:

what a sweet show :) thx Bronwyn
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Webhamster Henry:

Lorenz Hart was already dead and rolling in his grave here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Thank YOU Andrew!!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:58pm diciassette:

I was going to say, Listener Gregory, that I probably knew the song from my mother singing it to me!
Avatar 8:59pm Andrew Hollywood:

I have the urge to watch American Werewolf in London now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: Rolling with delight!
Avatar 🎭 8:59pm Listener Gregory:

@diciassette, the song is like opium for 5-year-olds.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:00pm diciassette:

excellent!
