Pronouns 2: The Musical – Act 1: My

The Story

Welcome to Pronouns 2: The Musical.

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

Why a sequel to Pronouns? Again, “Why not!”

Program

Act 1: My

My future is in my past and my past is my present. I must now make the present my future. (Vladimir Horowitz, musician)

I have shared my whole life. My private and my show business life. It helps me actually to feel my songs and to go on with my dreams. (Celine Dion, singer)

My thoughts, my beliefs, my feelings are all in my brain. My brain is going to rot. (Richard Dawkins, scientist)

What are my sources of strength? My husband and my three kids, my health-care team, and my religion. (Geraldine Ferraro, politician)

I was scared when I lost my mother, my father, my brother, my sister. (Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, musician)

I put all my genius into my life; I put only my talent into my works. (Oscar Wilde, dramatist)

My music is the spiritual expression of what I am – my faith, my knowledge, my being. (John Coltrane, musician)

I hurt my wife, my kids, my mother, my wife’s family, my friends, my foundation and kids all around the world who admired me. (Tiger Woods, athlete)

Guidelines

Songs must have My in the title

Cautions

  • No duplicates songs regardless of artists
  • Foreign language equivalents unacceptable

Production Note

  • To prevent browsers crashing from loading too many videos, please
    Include the song title and artist in your text, and
  • 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 for Pronouns 2: The Musical. Never before in aFa Productions history have we ever had this fast of a turnaround. Then again, we feed off the enthusiasm of attendees. Thank you!

Act 1’s My theme offers many opportunities. Our production staff decided to go outside the box for this one. He’s a star – and he’s joined forces with a living legend for this song. Ladies and gentlemen – let’s make some noise for Toby Keith and the great Willie Nelson with Beer For My Horses. (Note: for the impatient, start at 50 seconds).

Next – Act 2: Mine (FYI: Not easy)

  1. Mr. Producer …
    You have selected one of my favorites singer/songwriters – Willie Nelson.
    He could sing names from a phone book. His guitar playing and attitude make him unique.
    I’d heard this one but I could hear it again and again and again. : )
    Well …. I thought I was going to be unique in my selection of music. But, I see this quote
    “My music is the spiritual expression of what I am – my faith, my knowledge, my being”
    and have to laugh. Without a clue that his quote would appear at the musical I posted a John Coltrane song. Hope you enjoy …
    Isadora 😎
    ps: yes, I created a new line. 😳

  2. I liked the song by Toby Keith and liked the quote by Oscar Wilde. But Coltrane; that’s different… love his music, and there are a lot of quotes you could find that are worth thinking about. Thanks for the thoughts and the music, Frank
