Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from October 2, 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).

Hi. Will be listening as i work tonight. And last week right after I said I was free to listen got call and ended up working to midnight. Life of a support tech. Thanks for keeping the tunes coming.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm Bronwyn Bishop:

HELLO EVERYONE sorry for not updating the playlist at first!!! I lost the link to update the playlist because Paypal made me clear my cookies after they let someone steal a thousand bucks from me (long story)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:18pm diciassette:

OH DEER

:(((

Ahoy!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

Oh that's awful! No worries!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Webhamster Henry:

Hi Bronwyn!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:28pm WR:

OMG Bronwyn!?! I hope you are able to resolve the PayPal incident with no loss besides your precious time spent.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:37pm diciassette:

REally liked those vocals (looks over at John Hendricks)

Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Webhamster Henry:

The original "Let It Go"!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:47pm diciassette:

"You're the cream in my coffee" always reminds me of Marlene Dietrich's screen test, which I will forever be not over (for later: youtu.be...)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Webhamster Henry:

Oh! Kolkata! << new name
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@WR: I am supposedly going to be refunded but it hasn't hit my account yet...
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:59pm diciassette:

^ ¡glad to hear!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Guess what next week's super special October fundraiser theme will be?? ACID JAZZ HANDS ALL STARS!!! We will be counting down the musical theatre songwriters who have been played the most on Acid Jazz Hands, all the way to the #1 winner!!! Any guesses as to who our contenders will be???
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:12pm diciassette:

Sondheim for sure (come in, Scraps wherever you are!)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Webhamster Henry:

Going to DJ Stashu's WFMU Karaoke tomorrow, jazz handed ones?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@diciassette: I am not quite done calculating the play counts yet and the question on my mind is will Sondheim be #1 or will someone else take the crown from him??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: no :( too damn busy :(((
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:15pm diciassette:

Does Cole Porter count? I have a cognitive bias towards Cole Porter tunes
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:17pm diciassette:

Other categories: male vocalists, Bernadette Peters
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Cole Porter definitely counts!!! Everyone who's ever written music or lyrics for anything I've played counts (even the army up there that wrote the songs for Fellowship). And I actually thought about doing an all male vocalists show cause I love male singing but was worried people would find it problematic....Maybe I could do an all baritone show! I love baritones!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:22pm diciassette:

Say!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:27pm diciassette:

I think that's a fantastic ideer
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Yay!! Baritones it is (eventually)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:37pm diciassette:

I was analyzing this playlist, wondering if we could scrape data from it.. what are Levay Lyrics? Anton?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Bronwyn Bishop:

For the Mozart song, the music is by Sylvester Levay and the lyrics are by Michael Kunze. I know it looks a bit weird, it doesn't let you add space between lines
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:40pm diciassette:

I feel so silly!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:42pm diciassette:

I won this record, and I have it! (now I feel a little smarter)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Bronwyn Bishop:

don't feel silly! i think i'm the only one who uses the notes for that function so it wasn't designed that way. and yes you won because of your very generous donation! and by the way guys we're doing our October fundraiser and we're taking pledges!!! :D
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:52pm diciassette:

The last time you played Raúl Esparza, I also really thought he sounded like Elvis Costello (I remember these things)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Bronwyn Bishop:

haha I remember that and I was thinking I now want to see Elvis Costello as Bobby in Company
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Thank you so much to everyone who's pledged so far!!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:00pm diciassette:

Thank you! Abyssinia!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:04pm Webhamster Henry:

Till next time!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:37pm WR:
