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.

Program

Act 1: I
Act 2: You

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.

Announcement

Welcome to the latest musical by aFa Productions – Pronouns: The Musical.

We are all gathered at this wonderful theater for Act 9 because it’s all about us. Having a chance to have this group here, well – the aFa production staff couldn’t pass the chance. Ladies and gentlemen, if this doesn’t get you moving, you have a problem. Welcome to one of my favorite groups and favorite songs, so let’s hear those loud cheers for Asleep at the Wheel with Ain’t Nobody Here But Us Chickens.

Act 10: They (Date TBA)

  1. Hi Frank, Hi Dale, Hi All! I never heard your song before Frank, that was quite enjoyable to watch! I thought I had nothing – nada – zilch!! I searched through my play lists and nothing popped up – and then a wee bit of help via Pink Floyd and Dark Side of the Moon. Do you remember when we all loved that album? “Us and Them” https://youtu.be/deU_uwlNpOo It’s long, so unless you love it give it a miss….. 🙂

  2. I thought of I Dig a Pygmy by Charles Hawtrey and the Deaf Aids but I’m in the mood for Peter Gabriel’s “Not One Of Us” from his third solo album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbwQ0Wy3ljQ.

    To assuage the producer I will mention that The Doors have no songs with “us” in the title and will also propose Reverend Gary Davis’s “Let Us Get Together Right Down Here” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6h2jy7X6xWw as the obscure blues track of the day. I am also hoping he picked up (and appreciated) the Charles Hawtrey reference.

  3. I was away all weekend and I’m really late to this post, but I still want to weigh in. I had several songs that jumped to mind, and I hope I’ve read through all the comments carefully enough to not have missed my first offering: A Time for Us (theme from the movie Romeo and Juliet) as sung by Andy Williams. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MsNpMno5VyE Not as much a favorite as Pink Floyd, but anyone my age has a soft spot for Andy Williams, too! 🙂
