Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from May 15, 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).

I hope ya like the lyrics cuz yer gonna hear 'em!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm WR:

Oh man, sudden shift from laser strobes to the foot lights of Broadway, hello there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

My parents had that Pajama Game album - Peter Arno art, so sophisticated.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Webhamster Henry:

This song need's Ken's #metoo goat scream.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi everyone!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: so many musical theatre songs would get that goat scream now, like much of the collected works of lerner and loewe (she says with love)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm WR:

I know even less about Ken's goat scream than I do about musicals.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm Webhamster Henry:

"And if he likes me, who cares how frequently he strikes me? I'd fetch his slippers with my arm in a sling, just for the privilege of wearing his ring!" - Fiorello
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@WR: not sure if he still does this, but ken used to have a goat scream sound effect that he would play when songs got iffy in a #MeToo sense
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: Harnick on the lyric you quoted: "''The lyric is dated and irritates a lot of women,'' Mr. Harnick concedes."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

This one really needs visuals!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Bronwyn Bishop:

i enjoyed seeing sheldon harnick live but that quote reminds me he was born in like 1872
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm WR:

I have a question I hope one of you can help me with. Relevant to this moment for me since I am mopping and I recall (I think) a musical album cover of a lady and a mop on the cover. She might be sitting and the mop beside her in a bucket. Yeah, random, I know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm doctorjazz:

Hi Bronwyn! Just the hits!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Sweet Corn Lizzie: NLB's performance of Get Me to the Church on Time starts at 2:10 here: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@WR: i have no idea, but will ponder this
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@doctorjazz: it's all about the happy songs tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Webhamster Henry:

@WR maybe you're thinking of Carol Burnett's show opening animation. Ms. Burnett was in Once Upon A Mattress and Fade Out - Fade In, but not with a mop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm WR:

If you happen to randomly know, ok, just an image in my head from when i worked in a record store in 71 - 74, so probably 60s or late 50s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm WR:

WHH, very possible my memory has blurred some images together so it exists only in my head.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Webhamster Henry:

Or rather closing animation. www.imdb.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm WR:

Burnette has an album cover that fits my description but that's not what I am thinking of. By the way, both Carol Burnett and Debbie Reynolds were born in Texas, but you probably already knew that

www.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm WR:

I mention Debbie Reynolds because I am wondering if I somehow am misremembering the oar on the cover of Unsinkable Molly Brown.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm steveo:

Hi Bronwyn we're playing cards and listening to the radio hurrah
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm diciassette:

Juanita Hall and I occupy the same birthday awooo! Oars and mops, buckets and lifeboats
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi steveo, glad to help with the soundtrack to your card game :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Webhamster Henry:

Lotta tap dancing tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

Thanks for the link, Bronwyn
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: where would up tunes be without tap dancing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Webhamster Henry:

This Beltane tune is full of Morris dancing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm diciassette:

Lusty Julie Andrews! Oh now you've done it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: I haven't heard the word Beltane since i was a wiccan
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@diciassette: the secret side of julie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Cmurtha:

hello everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi Cmurtha :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm diciassette:

She did a darn fine rendition of Big Spender on the Muppet Show, you know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm diciassette:

Annie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Webhamster Henry:

I'm more of a Lughnasadh kind of guy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Lughnasadh is the only proper wiccan holiday ritual I've ever been to! There were like 100 people there and it was really something
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Webhamster Henry:

I've played music at some Beltanes, but never went to the notorious afterparty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Bronwyn Bishop:

i want to go to a Beltane afterparty!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

WR could this be what you're thinking of? www.vinyl45s.com...
Avatar 8:33pm northguineahills:

I remember Carol Channing doing hello Sammy (the snake) on Sesame Street.
Avatar 8:33pm northguineahills:

I've dj'ed Brooklyn Beltane after parties if that counts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Bronwyn Bishop:

man everyone has been to a beltane afterparty but me huh
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Webhamster Henry:

Lots of Celt-folk rock, I suppose?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Cmurtha:

whenever I hear this song I think of Freakazoid, but that was my first time hearing the OG. Pretty dope
Avatar 8:36pm northguineahills:

Started w/ British/Irish/American (and some European and Japanese) folk rock and ended w/ some hedonistic techno...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm WR:

@Sweet Corn Lizzie. Maybe. Maybe I'm mixing things up in my memory but what I recall isn't a photograph but a graphic design. Thank you for looking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

It was fun! I thought it might be the book or movie of "Mrs. 'Arris Goes to Paris", a book a read a long time ago about a charwoman who goes to Paris to buy a couture gown, but the cover didn't have her with a mop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Cmurtha: which one reminds you of freakazoid?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Cmurtha:

Hello dolly, every time I hear that i think of hello lobey, CHILDHOOD ASSOCIATIONS YO
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Cmurtha:

also thank you for the show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Bronwyn Bishop:

thank YOU cmurtha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Survived the storm warnings and all is well. How is NE PA tonight?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm WR:

Thank you Bronwyn for keeping the show going.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm diciassette:

thanks Bronwyn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Bronwyn Bishop:

hey i said in my first show i would do it for 90 years and i don't plan on rescinding that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Bronwyn Bishop:

thank YOU diciassette
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm Webhamster Henry:

If you aren't comatose from sugar shock at this point, you can watch some Neil Patrick Harris Tony Award opening songs. www.youtube.com...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Webhamster Henry:

Thanks for the show!

Oklahoma: you know Stan Freberg did a mini musical called Oregon : www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm diciassette:
