In five notes
August 12, 2009
I’m watching Top Chef Masters live because there is nothing on TV tonight. That means commercials, a rarity for me. The commercial for BandSlam came on. All of the sudden I thought “I know that song”… from the lyrics “I’ll be your prince, I’ll be your saint…” I think I could win a name that tune contest, as long as there were only Jason Robert Brown songs. The song is from his solo CD, not a musical so that takes an extra geek-hood. It reminds me of the “Food Network Throws Your Wedding” episode that was won by sublime Broadway star Aaron Lazar and his fashion model fiance. At the rehearsal dinner he sang “Shiksa Godess” from The Last Five Years to her. And I think that I was in my dorm room saying,”I know that, I know that!” But nobody was there. And few people would care. Except my Tallahassee theatre friends, who have been known to pull out JRB songbooks and have impromptu karaoke around the piano during rehearsal downtime. Oh I found my people.
