Pronouns: The Musical – Act 1: I

The Story

Welcome to Pronouns: The Musical.

Some may ask, “Pronouns?”, but we at A Frank Angle say, “Why not pronouns!”

A subset of nouns, pronouns serve as a substitute for nouns and noun phrases. These bits of linguistics and grammar are versatile and can almost refer to anything.

Although pronouns can be personal, objective, possessive, indefinite, relative, intensive, demonstrative, interrogative, reflexive, and reciprocal, this musical extravaganza focuses on selected pronouns.

Program

Act 1: I

I – when the speaker or writer refers to self as the grammar object in a sentence

I – but not me (that’s Act 2)

“I am the greatest.” (Muhammad Ali)

“I shall return.” (US General Douglas MacArthur)

“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.” (Albert Einstein)

“I have a lot to be thankful for. I am healthy and I am loved.” (Reba McEntire)

“I am a strong woman because a strong woman raised me.” (Writing journal title)

Guidelines

Songs must have I in the title

Cautions

  • No duplicates songs regardless of artists
  • Contractions are acceptable at the discretion of The Producer

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.

Announcement

Welcome to Opening Night of the latest musical by aFa Productions: Pronouns: The Musical.

Selecting the opening number for any act is difficult, but finding the starter for Act 1 on Opening Night requires extra scrutiny. In the spirit of our leader’s contrarian nature, we at aFa Productions think outside the box – and a Mummers band perfectly fits that criteria. Let’s give a rousing aFa welcome to the Polish American String Band and I’m Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover.

 

Act 2 – You – Next Saturday @ 1:00 am (Eastern US)
