Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from September 25, 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).

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm Webhamster Henry:

Hi Bronwyn! I love The Forbidden Zone music! I used this opening bit as a sample on my Mirage back inthe 80s. and "Pico and Sepulveda"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm Webhamster Henry:

There's supposedly a sequel in the works, slow going as usual.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

Love Danny and the Forbidden Zone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm WR:

For once, work done, finished eating. Connected. I should get headphones so I can turn it up abd not disturb my partner who is still working.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm WR:

I finally saw Forbidden Zone about a year ago. Fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm doctorjazz:

Hi, Bronwyn and all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Webhamster Henry:

A French Dracula that sounds a little like Jacque Brel. "Jacques Brel is undead and posessed and unliving in Transylvania"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Bronwyn Bishop:

hi everyone :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: He does sound like him!! That would be an amazing title for a Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well parody if someone did one for some reason
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Bronwyn Bishop:

(says the woman who did an unauthorized rewritten version)
  7:14pm Listener Gregory:

Good morning all. Unless it is some other time. I also thought Jacques Brel for a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm WR:

That rain song is really scary.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Bronwyn Bishop:

hey gregory :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@WR: It is, I've never seen that show so I have no idea what the context is but Jarrow's voice is...unsettling
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Cmurtha:

I see we are in spooky mode early. Just as I am.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Bronwyn Bishop:

oh yes!! Just wait for the first ever ACID JAZZ HANDS HALLOWEEN SPECTACULAR
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Webhamster Henry:

They All Deserve To Die.
  7:22pm Listener Gregory:

What is the role of Alan Parsons in this? Can’t quite make it out on the record cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Bronwyn Bishop:

that's def going in there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Cmurtha:

I'm glad I spooked up my icon here already.. AS IS MY TRADITION
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: Parsons wasn't involved but Eric Woolfson was the other guy in the Alan Parsons Project and that's his album- the sticker says "from the creator and writer of the Alan Parsons Project"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Cmurtha:

Alan Parson's Project does have a very fun concept album built around poe too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

Aww, this musical was one I grew up with. My parents had lots of soundtracks.
  7:29pm Listener Gregory:

I think this is one of those songs written for a non-singer (Camelot).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Bronwyn Bishop:

for some reason Alfred Drake (who played Curley) sings Lonely Room on this album, which leads me to wonder what on earth Howard da Silva's Lonely Room sounded like
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Cmurtha:

a warsh out
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Webhamster Henry:

Flahooley - a little dip into the Not Since Carrie repertoire.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: Lerner and Loewe did that a lot- My Fair Lady and Gigi also have male leads with speak-singing voices
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: MY FAVORITE REPERTOIRE
  7:46pm Listener Gregory:

If my job could be replaced by an adding machine, I’d *like* it to replace me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Webhamster Henry:

There have been a number of nice Musical numbers stuck into TV shows over the past few years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Webhamster Henry:

Les Parapluies has been produced as a live opera, and that must be very nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm Bronwyn Bishop:

i would love to see that!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm Webhamster Henry:

Bring lotsa handkerchiefs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Webhamster Henry:

Deneuve was about 20 when this was shot. She's nto singing here, but got to sing a little, undubbed, in Les Desmoiselles de Rochefort.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Webhamster Henry:

Glad you're doing a little Industrial Music!
  8:12pm Listener Gregory:

Am I really hearing this?? (Lotion)
  8:13pm Listener Gregory:

No, it’s hallucination... again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Webhamster Henry:

Claibe Richardson wrote The Grass Harp, another Not Since Carrie hit!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Webhamster Henry:

Got a feeling 21 is gonna be a tough year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: alas silence the musical is 100% real- i know, because on a college trip to NYC, my one friend went to see it for like $5 while my other friend and i went to see phantom for $80, and i think the friend who saw silence had the better evening
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: it will be better than 2020 :)
  8:35pm Listener Gregory:

You had to see Phantom so that the rest of us could skip it. Thank you for your service!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Bronwyn Bishop:

i am happy to take one for the team!
  8:39pm Listener Gregory:

Rather stunned by Floyd Collins.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Bronwyn Bishop:

floyd collins is beautiful!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Webhamster Henry:

Ace In The Hole is also worth looking up - loosely based on the same incident.
  8:55pm Listener Gregory:

Awkward that the Notre Dame album cover shows it in flames (years before actual fire).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: I looked it up and that seems interesting- especially odd that it focuses on the reporter character and not the trapped guy
  8:58pm Listener Gregory:

Excellent show tonight. I learned something, and it is difficult to get me to do that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: Even more awkward is the Disney film which ends with the cathedral on fire and flames POURING OUT OF THE WINDOWS (although it doesn't burn down and is fine at the end??) they were going to make a live action version and now they probably can't which sucks because it has a beautiful score but is a deeply flawed movie and is one of the only ones that could really use a live action version
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: what did you learn?? floyd collins?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Bronwyn Bishop:

i luv to inspire learning
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Webhamster Henry:

It really points out the circus aspect and the contrast between the hoopla and the real human drama. People seeing it would have had the original incident it their minds, so the satire aspect of it would be more effective!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

going into OT tonight darlings
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Webhamster Henry:

Gonna do a show thats ALL HUNCHBACK ALL THE TIME?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I should!!!! There are sooooo many hunchback musicals but not a single one has ever been a real success, and still they try, those wacky composers and lyricists
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:02pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I played a bunch of them right after the fire in this show: wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:02pm Webhamster Henry:

Hey I guessed Candide's finale before you announced it! That and Eldorado are really something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Webhamster Henry:

Candide (at least the original) -- another proud Not Since Carrie musical!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05pm Bronwyn Bishop:

how did u guess??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm Webhamster Henry:

The Great Performances version with Patty LuPone and Kristin Chenoweth - with a cameo by "Donald Trump" - is also really fun
  9:06pm Listener Gregory:

Love Candide! If that’s the end, beautiful ending.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm Webhamster Henry:

Till Next time!
