Act 10: The Mess
The meal is done – the guest are gone – the host is left with the mess. It’s been a grand time but, so much work is necessary to bring order back to the house. This act features songs with the following in the title: fork/forks, knife/knives, spoon/spoons, bowl/bowls, cup/cups, glass/glasses, dish/dishes, pot/pots, pan/pans, and kettle/kettles.

Caution: These items have multiple meaning, so make sure the term is used in proper context. (EX) Heart of Glass (Blondie) is NOT acceptable because “glass” is not in the correct context.

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.

Thanks for attending Meals: The Musical. on closing night. The mere sight of the mess can give anyone the blues – so a touch of the blues is here to start the final act. Let’s give a big hand to Albert Collins … and Don’t Go Reaching Across My Plate.
