Act 8
Life … the time for the living to live. One’s life starts when one is born. Shortly thereafter, we are given something that stays with us no matter where we go – a name. Immediately, we are nourished, so we grow physically, mentally, and emotionally from babies into young children … and that’s when we start to dream about our future life. Growth never stops, so from children we move on as teens .. but school is still much of life at this point.

Eventually, we work ourselves into adulthood, so Act 8 features song with Man/Men or Woman/Women in the title … and bonus points for anyone with a song with two of these words in the title!

Production Note
To prevent browsers crashing from loading too many videos, please 1) include the song title and artist in your text, and 2) paste the URL as part of your last line (not a new line). The latter will provide a link, thus not embed the actual video … but I don’t mind unembedding, so apologies are not necessary.

Ladies and gentlemen, those who know me best realize I only have one choice for the opening act, which also means I took one of the bonus possibilities away. A big aFa welcome to the reason I have a prosthetic left hand (yes, she touched the original, which is now preserved) … Shania Twain (who looks great in yellow) with Man! I Feel Like a Woman.

  1. I don’t often laugh out loud, but this revelation of your Shania Twain crush elicited quite a howl over here, “A big aFa welcome to the reason I have a prosthetic left hand …” Sorry, my adolescent brain thought it was for an entirely different reason than her having merely touched your original mitt. Okay, I’ll try to act my age now. Here’s my selection: from the film, “Funny Girl”, Barbra Streisand in a duet with Omar Sharif, “You Are Woman, I Am Man”


    • Lame,
      Glad to know that I provide amusement for your pleasure. Great pic … not one I expected, but I appreciate getting a wide range of styles .. .so I appreciate you pulling this on out of your Broadway file.
