Act 10
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 move into adulthood as women and men, and the work world is a prominent feature in life … but work isn’t the only thing in life. After all, who would ever believe that life is all work and no play! Act 10 is about play as in fun, so song titles must include Play, Playing, Fun, or a fun activity (as in swimming).

There is much latitude in this act, thus a lot of room for error … so make your selection with care. IMPORTANT: 1) Include the title and artist in your comment, and 2) an occupation can only be used once.

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.

Right here on this stage aFa Productions presents is an American icon to kickoff Act 10. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome The Boss … Bruce Springsteen Dancing in the Dark (with a young Courtney Cox).

    • Amy,
      A title like that is perfect fun for a pyromaniac! … I couldn’t resist … 😉 …. Interestingly, this is the second real old oldie from the Rolling Stones .. and in video form, too!


    • Lorna,
      It’s a wonderful play and the audience helps determine the music. Last year’s smash hit was Time: The Musical … so this has been an excellent production that had big shoes to fill. There are many good songs in the comments as well. Meanwhile, no commenters can leave without a song, so here’s one for you … Play the Game by Queen. … Enjoy


    • Guap,
      LOL … Ah ha … you may be Mr. Adventure, but not a runner … and that’s fine, after all, neither am I. Good to have you back on Life: The Musical … and thanks for the good tune!

  2. Hi Frank… I love this saga… Regarding “play” I am now thinking that as we grow up the disinterested and joyful games from Childhood tend to become a competition… The awards is usually recognition in the way of money or status, and it applies to different “vital” scopes…
    As to my choice… I’ll add David Guetta – Play Hard ft. Ne-Yo, Akon (Official Video)
    I’ll be checking out the previous posts related to “Life, the Musical”. Happy week ahead to you!. ⭐ All the best. Aquileana 😀


  3. Alrighty… when singing, one it usually having fun. This is a serious “ear worm” song, the lovely Serena Ryder with the most powerful voice sings, “Sing, Sing, Sing” – I had trouble finding a good video of this one. They are all taken at various concerts soooo….
    And in case you don’t consider this a “play” or “fun activity” song, well, then here’s another!
    How ’bout Dean Martin “Just for Fun”
