GUEST,Colwyn Dane worst songs from musicals (72* d) RE: worst songs from musicals 15 Aug 00


Seeing the line from Banjo Johnny of "When I'm calling you, oo-oo-oo, oo-oo-oooo ..."
recalls to mind the story of Oscar Hammerstein auditioning for the London production(1924-5) and how one young hopeful,
for the title role of Rose-Marie, was heard to sing the above line as:

"When I'm calling you, double-oh, double-oh,double-oh..."

And the report of Ira Gerswin, again a London audition; heard one young lady hopeful,
sing the opening of "Let's Call The Whole Thing Off"
which is normally sung as follows:-

You say eether and I say eyether,
You say neether and I say nyther;
Eether, eyether, neether, nyther -
Let's call the whole thing off!


You say eyether and I say eyether,
You say nyther and I say nyther;
eyether,eyether, nyther, nyther -
Let's call the whole thing off!
