Playlist For Sunday, February 26, 2017: Back, General Tso! Back, I Say!

For the next 1.5 weeks, I am going be to Busy. Catch the capital usage, buster. And that means I am tossing this Broadway salad with bold strokes, aggressive dressing, and nothing MINCED. Don't like garlic? Too bad. Garlic likes you, so suck it up and deal. Musicals should be gnawed, not caressed, so here's a Wild Bunch that want and deserve the munching.

Gee, I wish I could talk like that all the time. Sorry. I don't know what got into me. One minute I'm Shirley Temple in her "Old Straw Hat", the next my inner "He Had It Comin'" self is bitching, beware-ing and tango-ing on somebody's heart. Must be the gypsy in me. Too damn saucy for my own good.

Two sides of the Broadway coin (and the inside of my head) then; Bittersweet Lotte, Goofy Brian, Melvyn Douglas and Shirley Booth (whatta couple!) "at each other", Four Jews In A Room Bitching, plus tangos, mambos, beguines, castanets (and whips and chains, but there I go AGAIN!). Truth to tell, A LOT of my favorites. The sweet and the piquant.

Why do I want Chinese?
