Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from December 17, 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).

Lovely to hear you embrace your sadistic self.

NOOOOO!!!!! I'm knocked out of the Little Drummer Boy Challenge by WFMU - I was so sure I was safe! Well, that's the last time I ever pledge, and I hate the Oil City Symphony too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi doctorjazz, diciassette and Lizzie!!! Lizzie...what is the Little Drummer Boy challenge??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Ok I just googled it...oh no, I'm sorry!! Now that I know what that is, I will try to avoid playing the Little Drummer Boy in the future, especially considering how much I hate that song
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:39pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

It's a contest to see who can avoid hearing that song during the holidays. littledrummerboychallenge.com

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm Bronwyn Bishop:

It reminds me of The Game, which we used to play in HS (and which you all just lost, there's my sadism again)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Michael 98145:

someone in this household resists the Hippopotamus song
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

Apparently there's a similar game with "Last Christmas I Gave You My Heart" but I don't think that's nearly as annoying. Plus who thinks it's a good idea to play a drum for a baby? Mary is all "I just got him to go to sleep, get out of here!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I was obsessed with the hippopotamus song as a child, I even requested it on the radio when I was 11
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

I don't know that song, will look for it (and probably regret it!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Michael 98145:

Don't think i've ever heard that LCIGYM💚 song ...

Can't go wrong with this Hallelujah, much happier than the other one.

I like The Rocheses one!

Hi Doug (and thanks!!!) Hi HyperDose!!!!

I wonder if it has been long enough for me to enjoy watching Nightmare Before Christmas again.
