So with yesterday’s overly dramatic post about Romeo and Juliet and A Boy Like That from West Side Story being the showtunes, I figured lets take the other side and choose a song from my cat’s side of the story. Not only did I want something a bit more upbeat and happy, but I wanted something campy, trashy and absolutely fabulous. The only show and song that could possibly do this, without a cast made up of mostly drag queens, is Thoroughly Modern Millie and the only song would be Forget About the Boy from Thoroughly Modern Millie.
Since my cat is the one in the middle of the drama and wants me to be happy but also wants the guy out of my bed, why not sing the song Forget About the Boy from Thoroughly Modern Millie. The song is Millie singing to forget about him. He’s not good for you. It is about getting over a guy and being happy to be rid of him, even though it can be a hard thing to do. So while you randomly break out into song after talking on the phone and dancing around the room, why not throw in tap dancing too? I told you it was campy.
Forget About the Boy from Thoroughly Modern Millie is definitely a great showtune to put on your play list after you break up with someone if you need to have some songs which aren’t completely depressing. No one wants to have to sit around their house depressed and thinking about the person they broke up with. Even though depressing songs can make you feel better, if you listen to them for an hour or two and then redo your play list to have happy breakup songs like Forget About the Boy from Thoroughly Modern Millie you’ll see how much better you’ll feel. You probably won’t end up tap dancing around the room, or you might, and you probably won’t end up with a chorus of tap dancing and singing back up dancers, but you may end up finding yourself feeling better about your decision to break up with your boyfriend or girlfriend. Forget About the Boy from Thoroughly Modern Millie is one of those break up songs that is happy, upbeat and perfect for you if you are in recovery mode from your break up.
