Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from May 28, 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).

Hello! I am pondering the fact that the 1920s are now 100 years old as I sip a Manhattan Mary inspired Manhattan

Never mind...

I managed to parse that!

Note to self: If writing a song about a haunting melody, give it a memorable melody.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:17pm doctorjazz:

Ahh, those 20s vocals..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hello darlings!! I watched The Godfather Part II this week and my favorite part was when Robert De Niro was in 1910s NYC and went to see a crazy little Italian operetta! I would have watched three and a half hours of that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Also I am in PA and it is pouring rain so if the power goes out, you will have to guess what the songs might be called
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:21pm WR:

That Victor record, My Hula Maid, has "75c in U. S. A." printed on it. Really, 75 cents in 1915 seems pricey.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:21pm doctorjazz:

Man. Did Louis Armstrong change how musicin the US sounds
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:22pm WR:

You just said a mouthful doc.

Correction to song lyric: Robinson Crusoe did not happen "a thousand years ago, maybe more," but in the 18th century. Sheesh!

@doctorj, word!

Come September, there will be theater goers again.

Uri Caine's album Sidewalks of New York was a fun take on 20s music

I will not be "sent on my merry way."

Wow, that twist in the lyrics with the mom brought me a tear.

Interesting idea to turn Emma into a musical.

There's been a couple

Has a Disney/Menkin sound to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Menken has many sons
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:53pm diciassette:

I have heard that an epiphany and an apparition are the same thing in some languages. Is there a satisfying Wuthering Heights musical, or did Kate Bush spoil that for anyone?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Bronwyn Bishop:

no but there's a crappy one
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:56pm doctorjazz:

Thanks, Bronwyn!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:59pm diciassette:

Thanks Bronwyn!

Thank you Bronwyn, laters all.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Webhamster Henry:

Thanks too! I love that old stuff!
Avatar 🎭 9:00pm Listener Gregory:

Thanks for tonight's joyful noise, Bronwyn. Maybe this final song will make up for all the sinning going on in the previous songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

thank YOU darlings!!!
