Playlist for Sunday, Nov. 22, 2015: Guess I Shoulda Turned Right At Albuquerque

Broadway's Take on Travel...from Nathan Lane as Dionysus loving every bit of mud, muck and gravel of it, to Elaine Stritch lamenting it (and the Useless Phrases we must learn when we gotta)...from Gene Nelson who just got back from "Kansas City" where they've gone as 'bout as fur as they kin go, to Roz and Edie wondering why they EVER left "Ohio"!  That indeed is our theme this Sunday: Travel, the Where, the How, the Why, and the Why Not.

Of course, if I was going to write a musical having anything to do with travel, I'd write a couple of songs about "Garcon, Le Regnet Por Favor" or "Oh Woe, My Suitcase Canna' Close", you know...REAL mundane can't-count-this monopoly-money travel stuff. Ahhh well, I've never really been into the BIG QUESTIONS.  Hence, my love of boas and patent leather.

So listen up for Desi, Yves, Roz, Nathan, Carol, and Dean. Some Finnish Fisch Schlapping, Buffalo Shuffling...and, of course, a nice big Paris section. Cuz Paris is STILL Paris, wanna keep that thing going.
