So when I was at the Broadway Cares Equity Fights Aids benefit hosted by Harvey Fierstein in Washington, DC, one of the cabaret shows performed this song called Casting Call for a New Best Friend. Not only is this song one of the funniest songs to hit the broadway stage, but it is always a show pleaser and stopper.
It has high notes, it is hilarious, bitchy, catty and an overall funny one to watch and listen to. It does however have some vulgarity in it so if you aren’t into swearing, this song is probably not a good to play very loud, but if you can take a joke and want a good laugh, you should definitely play this video.
Now, both of the girls in this video are very talented, but it isn’t the best version I have found or seen on YouTube.com but the sound quality is the best because you can actually hear their voices the whole way through and understand what they are saying, even with the audience laughing. This is one of those funny songs that will make you laugh and if you have ever had a rival, you’ll wish you had learned this song a long time ago. It is sort of like Bossom Buddies where it is all back handed compliments from two different frenemies going back and forth.
I love this song and am definitely going to be singing it if I can find the karaoke versions anywhere. First I have to find out which show it is from though, or just find sheet music for it (which shouldn’t be to hard considering how many versions are out there) and then just have someone play it and burn it on to a cd. It is definitely a crowd please for karaoke nights and even more appropriate for a broadway karaoke showtunes night. If you like the song Casting Call For a New Best Friend as much as I do then leave a comment below. Also, if you know which show Casting Call For a New Best Friend is from, please leave a comment below and let me know so I don’t have to go searching the web for the show name and then the sheet music.
