Music: Spamalot Soundtrack

Our parents went to New York City last week, and saw a couple Broadway shows, but we weren't invited. To protest, we ordered the Spamalot soundtrack, a show we went to a few months ago when it came to Salt Lake. This show was so fun to go to, and hilarious for fans of Monty Python and those that have never even heard of the British band.

"Once in every show,
There comes a song like this.
It starts off soft and low,
And ends up with a kiss.
Oh, where is the song
That goes like this?
Where is it? Where? Where?

A sentimental song,
That casts a magic spell.
They all will hum along;
We'll overact like hell.
For this is the song that goes like this.
Yes it is! Yes it is!"
--The Song That Goes Like This

"He was not at all afraid to be killed in nasty ways,
Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Robin!

He was not in the least bit scared to be mashed into a pulp,
Or to have his eyes gouged out and his elbows broken,
To have his kneecaps split and his body burned away,
And his limbs all hacked and mangled, brave Sir Robin!"
--Brave Sir Robin

Quick vote: It doesn't really matter if you've seen this musical or not, anyone who likes a good musical (and even some of those who don't) will enjoy the musical stylings of Spamalot!

Aunt Annie's Two Cents: Broadway sure has gone downhill from when I was in the All-Dog Cast of My Fair Lady. I was Eliza Doolittle. "All I want is a bone somewhere, far away from this cold night air!"
