I did a post a while ago about the fastest songs on broadway and completely forgot about one of the fastest ones from one of the trashiest and most fun shows, Thoroughly Modern Millie. The Typing Test or The Speed Test is a song where she needs to be able to type fast, correctly and keep up with her boss. Unfortunately for her, she is able to do it and doesn’t get distracted with all of the people around her. It’s sort of like when you have deadlines at work.
You get frustrated because you know you have to get everything done and you don’t have much time. Unfortunately for Millie in the The Typing Test from Thoroughly Modern Millie, she is using a typewriter and not a computer. That means that if she makes a mistake, there is also no time to fix it. When you have tight deadlines and no time to check anything, especially if it is for your boss, you can get completely stressed out. Every noise, other people typing, etc… bugs you. What I love about this song is that it completely makes me think of deadlines and having to get things done quickly and correctly, but also makes it sort of fun.
The Typing Test from Thoroughly Modern Millie is a fun song that is hard to sing a long to. The music is very catchy and can easily get stuck in your head. I think that is one of the reasons that many people enjoy it. The Typing Test or The Speed Test from Thoroughly Modern Millie is a fun and fast broadway showtune that is great for listening to when you have a deadline or just to add to your mix for road trips. Here is The Typing Test or The Speed Test from Thoroughly Modern Millie.
