Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from September 18, 2020 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).

There's a certiain early 80s Brill Building sound to this Grease 2 track (if that's a thing... looking at you Mad Vinnie Poncia)

"Knowing when to leave" is my alarm clock sound
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Bronwyn Bishop:

hello darlings :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Bronwyn Bishop:

important question: is that GRIND cast album the very worst cast album cover ever??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Bronwyn Bishop:

another important question: which is the best? i like the baker's wife with the weird cat
Avatar 🎭 7:22pm Listener Gregory:

It is so important to play songs from terrible musicals. Thank you for taking on this critical work!
Avatar 🎭 7:26pm Listener Gregory:

Playlist is lagging. This medley is unusual. Also, hi @doctorJ!
Avatar 🎭 7:29pm Listener Gregory:

Ella also does an excellent version of Cole Porter’s Too Darn Hot.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Webhamster Henry:

Paul Lynde was an excellent Templeton.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Webhamster Henry:

I was talking about Corpse Bride yesterday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Little me was obsessed with it (I now recognize its inferiority to The Nightmare Before Christmas)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Webhamster Henry:

My kids were heavily into Nightmare and they and a friend of theres were Lock Shock & Barrel for about 5 months. Every day. Costumes. Props. Singing. Homemade stuffed dolls.
I built Ray an exellent Oogie Boogie costume.

I knew High Society as a movie, and it never occurred to me that it had been a play. Oops.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm Bronwyn Bishop:

That is amazing!! Oogie Boogie scared the crap out of me when I was a kid
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Bronwyn Bishop:

the musical is an adaptation of the movie (surprisingly enough)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Webhamster Henry:

And The Philadelphia Story was a play first, then a famous movie, High Society came out 1956, Excellent story recycling!
Avatar 🎭 8:15pm Listener Gregory:

Well I never!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

We saw Shockheaded Peter in SF around 1998. On the stairs as we left I heard a German accented man laughingly saying his parents told him all those stories and they terrified him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm northguineahills:

I'm here? (might be an actual question).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Lizzie: omg so jealous!! I wanna see shockheaded peter
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Bronwyn Bishop:

hey ngh :D
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Webhamster Henry:

How did they find this Overture? Often early scores were so beat up and discarded!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Webhamster Henry:

Did you get your paws on the Pearl collection of early theatrical songs?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Webhamster Henry:

Fanny has to rattle off these jokes to fit them on the record!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

These Follies songs are great! Perfect accompaniment for knitting outside.

An old boyfriend had 78s including Gallagher & Sheen, hilarious.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Webhamster Henry:

The Follies would play at the New Amsterdam, and after the show there'd be a midnight frolic revue in the restaurant on the roof.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:56pm diciassette:

I feel like I'd give up all advances in technology for that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm northguineahills:

wish there was a hurdy-gurdy in this song,,,,
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

Yes!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Webhamster Henry:

And Ziegfeld was not the only variety show in town either.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Now I know exactly what to do if I get my hands on a time machine- ziegfeld follies and then the afterparty
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Webhamster Henry:

That was a fun little 100 year time trip anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Bronwyn Bishop:

thank u all for jumping in the time machine with me!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 12:38am WR:

Late start, so only making through the first 2 sets. Fading as the Snoopy Friend song fades. Thank you for more goodies each week. Will listen to the rest another day.
