I dedicate this open music post to Lee and Right-Thinking from the Left Coast, our antecedent blog.  Sometime next week, it will go dark forever.  All good things must come to an end, and it is our task to carry the happy memories and share them with for as long as we can.

Using my final “Zurvan Card”, I’m calling for musicals!  Operas!  Other types of stories told in song!  This can include musical episodes or numbers from television shows.  I have a few I’m rather fond of.

If you’re not secure enough in your masculinity to admit that you like musicals, then I guess you can play something performed by literal fat women.

One day, the curtain will fall, even for RVS.  But not today.  Today, we sing.  Alright, here’s your playlist, homos:

This is all stuff I like.

Zurvan: Cell Block Tango from Chicago

Santino: I’m sure someone will get to South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut before long. But before there was any of that, there was Cannibal: The MusicalTrapper Song.

pfluffy: Masquerade from Phantom of the Opera.  I know how you love a good costume party.

WVR: Dance Magic Dance from Labyrinth.  Happy memories from my childhood, not in any way tinged with feelings of inadequacy or confusion over the Thin White Duke’s Thick Wide Bulge.

Grendel: You get my favorite.  Some Time Ago from Metalocalypse’s Doomstar Requiem.

I for one generally despise musicals, mainly because I can’t suspend my disbelief far enough to believe 20 gutter dwellers can spontaneously break out into perfectly choreographed song and dance at the drop of a hat. Avenue Q – Everyone’s a Little Racist Team America – Everyone Has AIDS Team America – America, Fuck Yeah! Cannibal the Musical – Shpadoinkle Day Terrance and Phillip – Uncle FuckerSouth Park – The Lemmiwinks Song Monty Python – Always Look on the Bright Side of Life Monty Python – Every Sperm is Sacred Evil Dead the Musical – What the…? Rocky Horror –… Read more »

Even though Joss Whedon has turned into a complete loon, I still love Doctor Horrible. You should watch it if you never have: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xw5vZjRfAno

Or if you’d rather just have one song:.

A Man’s Gotta Do – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jivFpDw4erk

While I remember Dr. Horrible, I wasn’t overly impressed with it, because musical.

Mel Brooks Love
The Producers – Springtime For Hitler
Robin Hood Men in Tights – Men in Tights
Young Frankenstein – Puttin’ on the Ritz
Blazing Saddles – Work Song

The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my all time favorite movies, and I’m glad I was able to pass it down to my kids.

This is Halloween
Kidnap the Sandy Claws
What’s This?

Zurvan

Best Overture in Broadway One of the most heartbreaking songs in all of Broadway. If you’ve never heard of the musical “Parade”, or the true life story of Leo Frank, it’s worth a listen/read. “You Will Be Found” from Dear Evan Hansen. How Ben Platt can sing while full on ugly crying is something beyond my comprehension. This is the Moment – from Jekyll & Hyde. Anthony Warlow is one of the most amazing singers I’ve ever heard. This one’s been playing in my house almost non-stop for the last few months. A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman. And… Read more »

I’m Rusty! – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mn88hl1Iz64

Zurvan

Not a Musical, but Opera’s count, right? The best Tenor solo ever.

Santino

I love show tunes. Thanks Zurvan and WG! Bugs Bunny 2 weeks in a row! That is one of the more brilliant Looney Tunes segments. The best Tenor solo ever. I beg to differ – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gt1V61SPI_w A dedication to RTFTLC and RVS – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0Sz6g76cac The last show I saw was Alexander Hamilton in Chicago a couple of years ago. I was a little overwhelmed given my at best cursory knowledge of American History. It was the first show I’ve seen where the dialogue was entirely song. I thought it was brilliant. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FX30cO4f26g The first show I took my children to… Read more »

Thanks, Santino! For you, here is the gayest “not gay” song in history.

Guy Love from Scrubs – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lL4L4Uv5rf0

Santino

I’m sure someone will get to South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut before long

Oh yeah. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IaXsWQAI2j4

Hoo Boy. As hinted to a couple of weeks ago, I do a fair bit of work in musical theatre, so here goes with a few numbers even you non-homos might like: If you like South Park – I Believe from Book of Mormon – Another Matt and Trey work, and IMHO actually the best If you like male duets about assisted suicide – Big Ass Rock from Full Monty – it also features a love song to a fat belly One of my current favourites (and something I’m trying to get the rights to) is Waitress – here is… Read more »
