 Because I saw a kick ass version of this last night:

"You've Been a Fool"


Quote from: Hester Jean on Jun 21, 2017, 09:25 AM"You've Been a Fool"

And so have I.

"Make Our Garden Grow", Candide

"I've learned to slam on"


The brakes. Before I even turned the key

Waving Through a Window, Dear Evan Hansen

every single day, I walk>


...down the street,
I hear people say,
Baby, so sweet!

Take Me or Leave Me, Rent

I add two and two...
"There's such a lot of different Annes in me. I sometimes think that is why I'm such a troublesome person. If I was just the one Anne it would be ever so much more comfortable, but then it wouldn't be half so interesting." -Anne of Green Gables


...the most simple addition.

"The Music That Makes Me Dance", Funny Girl

"Hard as it is


... the coming days / I watch my friend in her unnatural state

"Sonya Alone" from The Great Comet

Since I saw a fun production last night...

"Tumble out of bed and I..."


"9 to 5"

Assuming that's right (it's gotta be), here's the next one:

Pushing through the market square


"Five Years", David Bowie (Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars)

Way way back many centuries
Currently helping Dan search for his chocolate that I ate last night.


Ha, "Jacob & Sons" from Joseph and his Multi-Colored Rainbow Flag, er, The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

"Saturday night and you're still"

"Captain Jack" by Billy Joel!
But us, old friend,
What's to discuss, old friend?

I'm going to play some lyrics I've used before (long ago and far away). Back then I used them because the song was by my favorite group, but now it's also because I don't live far from the area described in the first verse.

"Drive west on Sunset to"
But us, old friend,
What's to discuss, old friend?


"Babylon Sisters" by Steely Dan, which I may not have gotten without the clue.


I'm trying very hard to find something that isn't obscure. :)

"When I was just a little nipper"


Hint: It's a musical that Aileen has been in.

...from the 21st century...
Don't know if it won any Tonys at all because that year was pretty much dominated by one show. But the show has had a second life in regional theatre, and personally I think it has a lot to say about the human condition.
