Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from December 6, 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).

Hi, Bronwyn and you all out there! (Like this Election Night track)
Avatar 7:03pm Scяaps:

oh man this is depressing, more now than ever.
Avatar 7:03pm Scяaps:

have to turn off the speakers for a few minutes....
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:03pm WR:

I wonder how this turns out. Actually I know this exists but never heard it or any details.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:03pm diciassette:

ahoy! yes (the trauma still feels fresh)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Bronwyn Bishop:

hi everyone! this is taking me right back to that terrible night! it was just 4 months after i graduated from college. welcome to adulthood!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@scraps: it will be over in 6 minutes! (yes this thing is really long)

Howdy, hands of the jazz!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:15pm WR:

Thinking about seeing this musical and thinking of what it might include and I started to tear up.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:20pm WR:

With the orchestra into to Uke Ike makes it likely this is from the 1929 movie The Hollywood Revue of 1929. Joan Crawford's song and dance number is just one of many highlights.

(One my wife knows..., Rothchilds)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Doug Schulkind:

Greetings, Bronwyn and acid jazzeteers!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:53pm Doug Schulkind:

So so great.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Good evening, Bronwyn and handlers.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:01pm WR:

Oh wow, did not know about Simply Heavenly. Gotta get that one.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:04pm diciassette:

ah Paul Williams! I was thinking this reminded me of Bugsy Malone..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm Bronwyn Bishop:

hey ken :D
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:05pm diciassette:

I imagine us all covered in whipped cream
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@wr: i discovered that song randomly and thought "this is a very obscure musical, why are these lyrics so good" and then i found out it was langston hughes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@diciassette: i have no idea what any of you look like but i can still see it
Avatar 8:07pm Scяaps:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Doug Schulkind:

Actually, I will be having tacos in a few minutes.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:10pm WR:

Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:12pm WR:

doctorjazz it was only just recently that I realized your avatar was not a bald guy with full blonde hair mustache and beard.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Doug Schulkind:

I'm jealous of me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm spodiodi:

have a hard time telling this and Tom Waits versions apart
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:13pm diciassette:

jealous of future you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@wr: i for sure thought that's what it was omg
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm spodiodi:

Avatar 8:16pm Scяaps:

(actually bronwyn i think you saw my picture [with my late wife Velma], that i still basically look like, except my beard has grown wildly.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@scraps: yes i did, a lovely picture!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:29pm doctorjazz:

WR, who said it's not? (The mustache and beard part work, but the full head of hair, never blonde, is long gone...that's my pooch Ozzie, producing his latest hit record)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm spodiodi:

Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:31pm doctorjazz:

He's such a good boy...

Lennie would be give a couple of snorts and be chuckling. And digging the next selection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Avatar 8:57pm Scяaps:

I'm Getting My Act Together and Taking It on the Road was one of Velma's favorites. I hadn't heard of it before
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:58pm WR:
