I may not be getting a lot done at work, but I am first to post again. Still no idea on the song though

I can definitely tell I need to brush up on my musicals..... I haven't heard of any of these last several today. I better do some study for next time.

Google is pulling your link up first now. Computer must know we are all searching for your blog. :)

Sounds like it belongs in A Mighty Wind. : )

Before this is all over, I wanted to ask a question. If I have to choose, this summer, between seeing Wicked for the first time, or seeing Les Mis for the second time, but this time at USF with Brian Vaughn, which should I choose? Opinions?

Is it a Little Night Music? If it is, I'm not sure of the song. However, I do know there is a character named Charlotte - is that a planned mystery for us to discover and mention? Hmmm...

Carol said...

I was just thinking about how appropriate this is for you, Charlotte. Your little Heather is truly growing older by the hour. I was talking with my 22 year old nephew yesterday and I have to say that I can still feel what it felt like to hold him for he first time. I cannot believe we have spent 22 years together! It is a good thing that I can have eternity with him as well because these first 22 years have gone TOO FAST (don't I sound old)!

Charlotte said...

Jeff: a point for being first on the board, again!

Harmony: Doesn't it though? As to your Les Mis/Wicked question, if it were me, I think I'd go for Wicked. BUT, that's because I value musical talent above acting talent, and while I adore Brian Vaughan as an actor, it's been long enough since I've heard him sing that I'd be afraid that he'd disappoint me in that area. Plus, Wicked is just magical for me.

Carol: 2 points for the name of the musical. If you can believe it, I had forgotten about the "Charlotte" character, but I'll give YOU a point for remembering!

Sounds like a flower child to me.
Which by the way is one of those nauseating fads that is upcycling -the huge flowers and psychedelic swirls showing up in fabric all from the 60's and 70's. And the peace symbol was really popular in fabric last year. This year there are lots of storybook characters and Seuss characters. There is even a Lorax line so you can make a quilt to hold while you go to the movie.

Where do you get these songs? I read the lyrics, now I have to go hunt up my CD. I swear I've never heard this before. But I hadn't heard Rent either.

Are you sure this isn't some hair band from the eighties? Sounds like a "nice day for a. . .white wedding (imagine scratchy metal voice and long, flowing hair.)

My favorite hair band is this one:

because they "punish you by playing classical music." (I dare you to go to the site)

deutschlehrer said...

the group, by the way is Finish. Edward Grieg is Norwegian.

Mom C said...

I agree with Charlotte. When I heard that he was casting himself as Javert and his wife as Fontine, I 'm a little hesitant to see it. And I love, love, love Wicked. It was magical and paradigm shifting.

Charlotte said...

Mom: a point for fabric flower trivia.


Jeff: another point for that video. You are creative, I'll give you that!
