(This is a duo post since I’m on Team Bette, but the author is on Team Annie…it’s a death match over which is better.)
Halloween is right around the corner and we are all watching and listening to traditional Halloween classics.
If you are anything like me, the soundtracks of Edward Scissorhands, Bettlejuice and Hocus Pocus are probably on repeat at your house. Hocus Pocus is a fantastic Halloween movie and the mega hit song , “I Put A Spell On You” from the movie Hocus Pocus has been remastered by 80’s legend Annie Lennox.
The original is by the incomparable Bette Midler and now the fierce Annie Lennox has offered her twist on the hit. (more…)
Last year or a while ago I did the best broadway songs for Halloween and found 20 Halloween showtunes I love for any Halloween party. The other day I heard a rumor that they are doing a sequel to the hit movie musical Labyrinth and it instantly meant it was time to come and finally do a blog post update. Sorry for the delay in posts, it’s been a bit crazy here.
Anyways, when I think of Labyrinth I think of the Fire Dance, I think of the maze and the Goblin city and rave. But if there’s one showtune from Labyrinth that “reminds” you of something, it has to be “The Magic Dance” from Labyrinth the musical.
I was thinking about what showtune to share with you all this week and instead of going for a Halloween one, I went with “The Telephone Song” from Bye Bye Birdie. You may be asking why I would choose the telephone song from Bye Bye Birdie as the showtune of the week, but when listening to it I realized how different things now compared to then and how ridiculous things in this showtune are.
Get read to be scarred for life after Watching the video of The Telephone Song from Bye Bye Birdie and then get ready for my take on it comparing then to now.
Going on with Kinky Boots, I’ve become obsessed with two songs…The History of Wrong Guys is one of them. I’m pretty sure my neighbors think I have some random guy names Charlie in a binocular across the street or something creepy because I keep belting it out lol. The History of Wrong Guys is one of the best songs from Kinky Boots the Musical and will be one of your favorites in a minute. Below I’ll go over what The History of Wrong Guys is about and then two stars performing it.
What is Kinky Boots The Musical About
What happens when you combine Harvey Fierstein with Cindy Lauper? A giant pair of red sequin and sexy Kinky Boots the Musical! Kinky boots on broadway is a super-fabulous telling of what really makes a man, even if he is all decked out in thigh-high bedazzled, red sequined boots.
Directed by Jerry Mitchell, “Kinky Boots the musical” is an adaptation of the book by Harvey Fierstein. It’s the story of a young man named Charlie who is forced to follow in his father’s footsteps by taking over the family’s failing shoe business. Eventually he goes looking for help and when he finds a “woman” who is being attacked, instead of helping her, it turns out she helps him. (more…)
