Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from October 25, 2019 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).

"It's Better with a Union Man" should have been in =The Pajama Game=
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:19pm doctorjazz:

(Which is the idea...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@doctorjazz: well you must forgive her, she doesn't have a brain!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@scraps: the pajama game team probably would have welcomed that as they weren't averse to putting songs by other people in the show- "there once was a man" was written by frank loesser (and boy can you tell!)
Avatar 7:22pm §€®@℗§:

BronwynB, have you seen the video for Sparks' "Dick Around"? If not, look at it later, it's weird & awesome:

Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:36pm diciassette:

Does it seem like the levels are going into the red, you guys, or am I still getting used to Studio C?
Avatar 7:36pm §€®@℗§:

or Silent E?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm ParUbi:

i thought it was just a beat-up record
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm ParUbi:

Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:38pm diciassette:

Yes! Ah!
Avatar 7:40pm §€®@℗§:

I used to sing Lehrer's nuclear war song ("We Will All Go Together When We Go") after Randy Newman's "Political Science" at Rose's Turn (piano bar). Memories!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm ParUbi:

Nice! He's genius.
