I have a friend who is constantly complaining that his life sucks. He is looking for a job and kind of lives far outside of the city but what he forgets is that he does have friends and does have options, he just needs to motivate a bit more to get out of his stupor. We recently just had a back and forth and he left to go have a cigarette break. The thing is that he is a great person and a very good looking guy and he has his health, except for the smoking part, so I tried to convince him he needs to get over his depression and start to get more proactive with finding a job and finding a partner instead of sitting around and moping in his house. After he went out for a cigarette I was getting ready for showtunes and he got me thinking of a song from the hit broadway musical Avenue Q.
The song is called It Sucks To Be Me and is sung by a huge part of the cast. It is all about people sitting around moping about how bad their lives suck and it actually helps to start to motivate them to get over it and find a way to fix it. Each character in the show tries to top the other characters about why their lives suck and in the end it is the character that plays Gary Coleman that wins.
This song is one of the songs that made this show famous and is one of my favorite showtunes from the musical Avenue Q. It starts out with one of the main characters coming out of his apartment building to throw out his trash where he runs into his love interest in the show Kate. From there they talk about how and why their lives suck. Once Kate finished singing about how her life sucks you get to hear a fight between a gay roommate and straight roommate and from there on out more and more characters come in to sing about why their lives suck. Avenue Q is an amazing musical and although it is not family friendly or for little kids, it is a perfect show for grown ups and high school students. The music is fun, the characters are puppets but also have real personalities and are people that many of us can relate to and the acting and singing is absolutely amazing. Avenue Q is currently playing in many major cities and on tour and a show that I highly recommend. You can see it in NY and it also has a home in London. Avenue Q is an amazing show and the song It Sucks To Be Me is hilarious. Here is the original cast singing It Sucks To Be Me.
