Rehearsals have been swell thus far. I was very happy to find that they had free blow-pops! The source music cds should be a fun thing to have a listen to. Singing through “The Last Great Record Store On Earth” (what a title) was relatively easy. I get to sing alto. I get to sing it well. I was initially worried that everyone would want to sing alto, but I don’t really know why I was worried b/c that is never the case for some reason.
Anyway, we got to learn the Aretha Franklin song today (“She Goes”) and it was awesome! Oooo, I am so excited to be channeling some sassy Miss Ree. Or more like channelling that mail-lady back-up dancer/singer from the Blues Brothers Ree number.
I will admit that, though I like Pat Benatar (and the awesome shoulder thrust move she does in “Love is a Battlefield” that totally scares away all the Pimps and Johns from the dance floor…you know what I’m talkin’ bout) — I don’t really *get* what the heck it means to be Number 5 especially *with a Bullet*. I’m just guessing that “a bullet” somehow synonymous for “emphasis” and I’m happy enough to just go with that. Fun to sing though.
I’m way more into the soul stuff though (i.e. I like dance music) – so I’m looking forward to the choreography rehearsal this Sunday. I have been known to do my best James Brown on many a dance floor across town, and its time to share that with the greater metro area’s musical theatre enthusiasts.
