Bucho, loving FOTC makes your more perfect not less.

Marius, in Canada a band called Great Big Sea does a version of Run, Run Away. I can play parts of it on the tin whistle. I think I win the Run, Run Away prize of lameness.

No need to choose, I'd say. Let's filk-up all the old glam classics from Slade and Sweet and others with quartets of ukulele, tin whistle, recorder, and dulcimer! flower

You are right of course Mandi, as usual.

I think at this juncture it'd be rude not to GAB. Cum on Feel the Noize indeed.

Listening to Mandi and Jakob banter about musicals reminded me so very much of the musical schism between my beloved and me. She shares Jakob's view that it's just not normal to suddenly just break out into song in the middle of a moment between characters. My response when she complains about those moments is, "You do realize this is a musical, right?" Laughing

As for spontaneously breaking out into Disney songs, I'm guilty of that. It was a song from The Little Mermaid, but it was not "Part of Your World." Instead it was "Poor Unfortunate Souls," sung to two coworkers who were surprised both by the fact that I was singing (which I simply don't do around people ever since a traumatic incident as a teen) and that I knew EVERY. SINGLE. WORD. I even sang it with the same inflections that Pat Carroll used in her version. Even bigger hurdle? I'm listening to the song right now as I type this. Yes, indeed Wink

As for popular music, other than the unfortunate P-review through which Jakob successfully embedded "Womanizer" into my brain for the better (or rather worst) part of a day, I can honestly say I don't think I could recognize most of anything that makes it onto any Top 40 lists anymore. Case in point: What the fuck are the Jonas Brothers? I keep seeing them everywhere, but I find them so vulgar in their banality that I can't be bothered to invest any effort into learning anything more about them. I still listen to new stuff from artists I've enjoyed since my teens, but I think the most recent artist I've listened to with any regularity is P!nk. I don't really have an excuse other than I liked "Stupid Girls" enough that I checked out more of her music, and she's kinda spunky. I like spunky.

You want all the music hurdles you can get in a can? Listen to public FM radio for one hour . You'll be scarred for the remaining days of your henceforth miserable life.

I remember when we used to say that about AM radio. Ha.

Karen, if you and Mandi break into song... I'm going to require more wine.

That squeee was the greatest moment of my morning Very Happy

But trust me, I am not musically inclined. How the daughter of a woman who once had an operatically trained voice could be so unable to sing on key is proof that genetics has a wicked sense of humor indeed.

And, Jakob, you say "more wine" as though it isn't in fact one of the greatest statements in the English language.
