Pronouns: The Musical – Act 9: Us

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.

Act 9: Us

Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love. (Mother Teresa, humanitarian)

The power of imagination makes us infinite. (John Muir, naturalist)

To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there. (Barbara Bush, First Lady)

Music, at its essence, is what gives us memories. And the longer a song has existed in our lives, the more memories we have of it. (Stevie Wonder, musician)

We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle. (Marilyn Monroe, actor)

History teaches us that unity is strength, and cautions us to submerge and overcome our differences in the quest for common goals, to strive, with all our combined strength, for the path to true African brotherhood and unity. (Haile Selassie, leader)

Every great and deep difficulty bears in itself its own solution. It forces us to change our thinking in order to find it. (Niels Bohr, physicist)

Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained. (Marie Curie, chemist)

Guidelines

Songs must have Us in the title

Cautions

  1. No duplicates songs regardless of artists
  2. Foreign language equivalents unacceptable
  3. Contractions are acceptable at the discretion of The Producer

Production Notes

  1. To prevent browsers crashing from loading too many videos, please
    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.
