Another Hundred People Just Got Off of the Train from Company is a song that sort of makes me think of a panic attack. Crowds and rushing around and going to work drive me crazy. I hate having to commute on crowded trains and around people coughing and sneezing and then having to do the same when I head home at night. It sort of makes me think of a panic attack, especially when I am sitting at a metro station staring and watching people get on and off the trains and freaking out or running so they can be on time. It’s amazing that more people don’t have nervous breakdowns from it which is what I think this song is about.
Another Hundred People Just Got Off of the Train from Company is about people being to busy and rushing around and driving themselves crazy. Earlier I had a panic attack when I was trying to finish everything I had to do for all of my clients and then also prep for a business trip I have to take. Not only did I feel like I was behind on my work, but I hate flying or being in large crowds so traveling at all always makes me freak out. I eventually calmed myself down and finished everything I needed to do as well as packed so I’m not worries anymore, but the song Another Hundred People Just Got Off of the Train from Company was the perfect song to think about when I was about to have a panic attack about having to do everything, at once and not having enough time or energy to do it all. It’s kind of funny how I always think of a showtune that is perfect for when I am stressed, happy or anything else. That’s one of the reasons I love showtunes. They are made for emotions and for people to sing about their emotions. Another Hundred People Just Got Off of the Train from Company is definitely a showtune that everyone can relate to if you have to commute to work and you are getting tired of your job and if you hate your commute.
It’s kind of funny how people flip out about things that they love like getting married or even at work when they have a simple project that they have to work on and then the person just freaks out. It’s kind of like the song Not Getting Married Today from Company.
I have no idea why I had a mini panic attack today but for some reason I did. It wasn’t my break up and all of my clients are doing well. I have a friends who I love and it’s actually kind of a nice day out. I even went to the gym and worked out. For some reason I just started to have a panic attack and I didn’t actually know why.
I forgot to eat breakfast which usually means that I am a bit off or in a bad mood, but that shouldn’t mean I would have a panic attack. I also got a full night’s sleep so that isn’t the issue. I do have to go to Vegas in a few weeks to speak at a conference. Normally that wouldn’t bug me because I speak at a lot of shows each year, but for some reason that could actually be causing me to be stressed. It could also be all of the things I have to do for Q4 this year for my clients who are mostly retail and consumer based.
I work in online marketing and if I don’t drive sales and results for my clients, they pull. Q4 is usually an awesome time where everyone is stressed, but also calm because there are tons of sales coming in. We’re also happy about this because we can have extra money at the end of Q4 to invest in either new employees, better marketing channels and have more money to spend on growing our customer bases. For some reason I think that the combination of speaking, Q4 sales and plans starting to be put together and going live and because I have new clients that just signed I am a bit stressed. It sort of made me thing of the song Not Getting Married Today from Company because even though she wants to get married, she is scared of it and starts to freak out.
One song that everyone loves is the Ladies Who Lunch from Company. What most people don’t know though is that it is actually a really depressing song. It’s about a woman who isn’t happy in her marriage or just not happy with life. She is depressed, lonely and feels like something is missing. I never really thought how sad the song is until I had seen the revival last weekend.
Everytime I’ve heard the song I thought it was just someone who was being bitter and drunk, I never realized how sad the person singing actually is. The song is absolutely one that people never really did well after I had seen the woman in the revival perform it. Not only did both my friend and I shut up and sit there watching stunned, but I don’t think I could ever watch it at a showtunes night or listen to it without realizing how sad of a song it really is.
The Ladies Who Lunch from Company is above and beyond one of my favorite songs now. I think it is perfect for an audition if you put enough emotion into it and you also really put your heart into it. You can act with the song, you can belt out certain notes and if you can perform the song correctly, you can everyone to just sit there quiet and ready to applause.
The Ladies Who Lunch from Company is an amazing song that I love and will always recommend for an audition if you are able to pull it off. You have to remember that it isn’t about fun or being bitter, but it is about being bitter, jealous and feeling alone. If you can pull those emotions out of yourself and put them into the song, there is no way you can lose a role to someone else. The Ladies Who Lunch from Company is now one of my favorite broadway ballads that I will always choose for people who need something to stand out with when they are auditioning for a show. The only thing I will try and make them do is put every emotion they have into it to make everyone break out into applause.
Yesterday I was at my friends house for our usual cooking thing and we ended up watching the 2006 revival of Stephen Sondheims show Company. If you haven’t seen this version than you have to go rent or buy it. It is absolutely amazing. Not only does it star one of my favorite actors Raul Esparza, but the production is incredible because not only is the cast able to sing and act, but they all had to play an instrument as well…including Raul.
Although the song Mary Me a Little from Company isn’t one of the best, it is one of my favorites. I don’t only love it because I’m down about being dumped the other week, but I absolutely love male ballads. The only reason I chose Mary Me a Little from Company instead of my very favorite Being Alive is that if I did Being Alive from Company today, I would have no voice left because I love to belt that song out like there is no tomorrow.
One of the things that I love most about Stephen Sondheim songs is that you can take them and put them into a million different contexts. Mary Me a Little is exactly one of those songs as well. You can speed it up and add in a happier voice and it becomes a fun and happy song. You can keep it slow and add in a few sad tones like Raul does and all of the sudden you have a ballad. I think that is one of the things that makes Stephen Sondheim so incredible. His songs and his shows are extremely versatile, and it seems like he puts himself into each one of them as well.
Mary Me a Little from Company is a gorgeous song that can help to show off anyone’s ability to act a song. You can use it to show expression in your face. You can change it and lower it or raise it to let everyone see your voice control, and you can either walk around a stage, stand still and let your arms, posture and voice express your emotions or just sing it however you want. That is why I love this song for auditions for smaller theatre groups that rely on solid acting instead of big budgets. Mary Me a Little from Company is an incredible song and Raul Esparza did an amazing job in the revival of the show.
If there is one composer and song writer that I love it is Stephen Sondheim. Not only does he completely right the perfect music for any mood, but instead of putting in the song I wanted to from Promises Promises about the issues I am having with my relationship, I randomly heard You Could Drive a Person Crazy from Company. Although You Could Drive a Person Crazy from the musical Company isn’t anywhere near the emotions I was feeling, it completely cheered me back up and got me smiling. Because of that I decided to post it instead of a sad song about relationships and love and be in a really good mood.
You could drive a person crazy from Company is one of my favorite showtunes about dating. Not only do the three ladies singing teach you what not to do, but they literally help you drive the person you love and yourselves crazy. They cover just about every situation and every pet peeve you could have with a relationship. One of my favorite lines that they sing is “Bobby is my hobby and I’m giving him up!”.
Even if you aren’t giving up your partner, sometimes you need to know when it is time not to push him or her into things or changing or in this case, bugging your friend to keep dating. If they aren’t ready to date or really don’t want to do something, sometimes you need to back off. If you are in the relationship and you want to move faster but they need to go slower, sometimes you need to take a step back and let them catch up. The only problem with that is that by the time they are ready, you may be ready to move on because they took to long. That is what could be happening with my relationship right now. I’m ready to move forward fast, but he wants to go slow and won’t give me solid answers. He’s also giving me mixed messages. Unfortunately the line “Bobby is my hobby and I’m giving him up” is starting to become what I think may happen. My hobby was loving him and falling for him, but if he can’t catch up I can’t deal with the mixed messages and will need to give him up. I don’t want to and will definitely end up upset about it, but there is no point in giving your heart to someone who isn’t ready to give theirs back. I honestly think I love him, but if he isn’t ready then he isn’t and I need to move on. I can’t ruin my life over him.
You could drive a person crazy from Company actually has another meaning. By not trying to help the other person and being the scared one who wants to take it slow, you could end up being the one who ends up driving the other person crazy. What’s even worse is that you won’t even know it. Unfortunately that is what is happening in my relationship right now. He has driven me crazy and now I ended up feeling sad, alone and depressed. Luckily I know that this isn’t the right thing to do and I am going to address it. If it doesn’t turn out the way I hope it will, then I am ready to break up. Hopefully it does work out, but if it doesn’t I’m prepared to get over the break up. Breaking up isn’t easy, but its better than being miserable waiting for the other person who may never come around. I guess that is why I really like the song You could drive a person crazy from Company so much. It actually has a ton of different meanings.
