Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from January 1, 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).

  7:04pm Jeff B Cali:

Isaac! From what record? A soundtrack? Instrumental radness

Whoops now he sings

@Gregory: Paradise of course!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi Jeff B!! Such a great cover from Mr Hayes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm Webhamster Henry:

Got to go Disco for 2021!
Stranger In Paradise's melody was cadged from Borodin's "Knyaz Igor".

As pointed out in this delightful commercial: www.youtube.com...

hello kiddies, we are all New Year Babes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Happy New Year WR!!!
Avatar 7:10pm Listener Gregory:

There are no strangers here—only friends we haven’t canceled yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Webhamster Henry:

This is a different version of Bert doing "Nobody" than the one I'm used to.
Avatar 7:19pm Listener Gregory:

I love the golden oldies.
@WebhamsterH, ditto!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm WR:

well said Listener Gregory, the less we know about someone the longer the friendship lasts.
Avatar 7:22pm Roberto:

OMG I was today years old when I learned Monty Python's "Sit on My Face" was a parody of "Sing As We Go."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I'm obsessed with this first part of this overture and have been frantically finding every In Dahomey song recording I can find to figure out which song this is
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: These are the golden ancient-ies lol. Golden Methusalehs
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Roberto: I think the Python version is more famous lol
Avatar 7:26pm Roberto:

It certainly is in my circles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm WR:

Bronwyn, the score for In Dahomey is probably available some where.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

First music I'm listening to in the new year - what a great start!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Bronwyn Bishop:

wtf was that pronunciation of hammerstein!!!
Avatar 7:44pm Roberto:

I was wondering about that, Bronwyn :P
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Webhamster Henry:

It wouldn't be Acid Jazz Hands without a Cyrano tune of some sort.
Avatar 7:48pm Roberto:

Maybe that's why it was an Off-Broadway show.
Avatar 7:48pm Listener Gregory:

The cover of the album is quite provocative. (Cyrano)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Webhamster Henry:

That was the clothing-optional Cyrano.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Lizzie: aw I'm honored that this is the first music of your new year!! hope it sets a good tone for the year :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Sexy Cyrano definitely threw me off lol, it seems fairly un-Wildhorn (he's so...serious)
Avatar 7:57pm Listener Gregory:

I don't believe boats were included in Goodnight, Moon, which is my authority for all goodnights.
Avatar 8:04pm Listener Gregory:

Cy Young has a definite Fred Astaire vibe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hiya, Bronwyn! Happy New Year, everybody!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Happy New Year Ken!!! :D
Avatar 8:15pm Listener Gregory:

Dana Fuchs has a definite Tina Turner vibe here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I thought she was the coolest back in 2007
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Webhamster Henry:

Time to watch the Company OST Documentary again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Still haven't seen that...I should see that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Webhamster Henry:

It's exciting.
Avatar 8:25pm Listener Gregory:

What is this documentary?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Webhamster Henry:

www.imdb.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Bronwyn Bishop:

This song has some weird lyrics. "I wanna be spliced?? And see my friends potted??"
Avatar 8:37pm Listener Gregory:

Thx, @webhamsterH. I had searched IMDb for company, and this didn’t come up!
  8:39pm diciassette:

hellos!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hey diciassette :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm doctorjazz:

Late to the party, but catching the end live, the rest later. Happy New Year!
Avatar 8:42pm Listener Gregory:

Ethel Waters was so good but seems unknown now. Didn’t she appear in a film with Louis Armstrong? If so, that will be the way her memory is preserved.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm WR:

❤❤❤❤❤
Ethel Waters!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hey doctorjazz :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm doctorjazz:

Great to hear Ethel Waters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm doctorjazz:

LG, if this the movie?

Avatar 8:50pm Listener Gregory:

You got it, Dr J! And Duke Ellington too! I haven’t seen it for some time, but I remember it having good performances.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm diciassette:

at last i’m sat down!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm diciassette:

i have been enjoying the show while driving a luxurious 1987 volvo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm doctorjazz:

Saw it ages ago as well, remember it vaguely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm WR:

Egad. I'm clickying light opera gems. what a century it has been so far...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Bronwyn Bishop:

i <3 light opera!!!
Avatar 8:57pm Listener Gregory:

1894... was this put out on wax? Edison cylinder? Sound is not that terrible for being 130 years old.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Webhamster Henry:

Ahh the speed of the crackles (and relative fidelity) reveal that it's a cylinder.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Webhamster Henry:

The show looks kind of interesting! en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar 8:59pm Listener Gregory:

Great show to start the new year, BB. Thanks and best wishes for 2021. Keep the cylinders rolling!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm diciassette:

thanks Bronwyn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm WR:

thank you Bronwyn! laters all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Webhamster Henry:

Cher is the only artist to date to have a number-one single on a Billboard chart in six consecutive decades, from the 1960s to the 2010s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Bronwyn Bishop:

thank you darlings!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: This is an amazing fact, she is a queen through and through
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Webhamster Henry:

That was fun, with lots of historical bits!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm doctorjazz:

Thanks, Bronwyn!
