Thread Name: worst songs from musicals
Subject: RE: worst songs from musicals
Poor Judd is Daid is meant to be funny but with the wrong two actors it is pretty stupid. I think "Happy Talk" and Carefully Taught" from South Pacific are pretty lame too. I happen to love musicals with "A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum" being my favorite, but I've mentioned that before. But I think I have the all time "Why the hell did they write that song?" nomination. It's from big River, a show with some wonderful music by Roger Miller. I love the show, but why did he write "Arkansas".

Here's a sample...

Arkansas, Arkansas, I just love old Arkansas, Love My Maw, Love my Paw, But I just love old Arkansas.....

This is great, I've been away for a week on one of the best vacations of my life, and I come back and there is yet another theater thread! Ya gotta love it....
