Playlist For Sunday, June 17, 2018: All Mooney

 Well, the Sponge won not. Neither the Mean, nor the Frozen. Not to gloat from here to Morton (2.1 miles on MY Garmin), but can I pick 'em or what. The Band's Visit scooped 10 Tonys (or Tonies, but def. not Tony's) last Sunday, and Katrina Lenk's been playing on a loop in this casa ever since. I played plenty of selections from that show last week, so I won't welm you (hey, I used a new word!) with more, for the moment, but just know that a Yazbek 2 on the Aisle Festival is in the making as I type!

But meanwhile, the biz at hand: Once (that Tony Winner from 2012)...Ireland, a pub, guitars, romantic, minimal, a pub. I'm in!  A couple of Juno bits...with Shirley Booth and Melvyn Douglas (more Ireland, a pub, not so romantic, a flop, a pub). And then a lovely moonlit theme, and a flocculation (another new word!!!) of sleepy time songs. No yawning, tho. None. Only on really Bad Broadway. This is Broadway at its Best!

Gotta run. Katrina's song is almost over and I gotta flip "the record". :)
