Pronouns 2: The Musical – Act 5: Your

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!”

Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success. (Swami Sivananda, philosopher)

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving. (Albert Einstein, physicist)

Guidelines

Songs must have Your or Yours 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 Act 5 of Pronouns 2: The Musical! A round of applause for your valiant effort with the difficult challenge in Act 4. With that in mind, a special announcement.

If you thought the last act was difficult, the next act is brutal. Given that songs with Its in the title are few, we are announcing a change. Some of you may have already noticed the change on the program cover.

The key word for Act 6 is Self, which opens up many possibilities.

  • Acceptable words will be Self, Itself, Herself, Himself, Myself, Ourselves, Yourselves, and Themselves
  • Special dispensation will be given to Its songs – but The Producer cautions because It’s is unacceptable
  • Suggestion: Don’t rely on the YouTube title

On to Act 5!

When in our research for the opening act, one immediately stood above the rest for personal reasons. Yes, many of us remember him as a star whose solo career exploded. Many years later, he married a Cincinnatian, so Cincinnati was his home for about 10 years. He frequently visit a casual restaurant near my house. Sorry to say, our paths never crossed. Ladies and gentlemen, a thunderous welcome for Peter Frampton with Baby I Love Your Way.

Act 6: Self

Act 15
Life … the time for the living to live. One’s life starts when one is born. Shortly thereafter, we are given something that stays with us no matter where we go – a name. Immediately, we are nourished, so we grow physically, mentally, and emotionally from babies into young children … and that’s when we start to dream about our future life. Growth never stops, so from children we move on as teens .. but school is still much of life at this point.

Eventually, we move into adulthood as women and men with many things going on in our life. Whether its work, play, or family, life can be complicated, so many times we hope for the best. Maybe above all else, people desire love, and go through many ups and downs in that quest.

No matter the situation, human encounters also provide a wide-range of emotions over a life with ups and downs. Whereas the previous act featured positive emotion, Act 14 is about negative emotions – so, all song titles must have a negative emotion in the song title. (The producers says stay away from love unless the title is a negative emotion.)

Time marches on. Although one gets older with each day, one grows old (that’s the theme) – so song titles need to include old, older, oldest, elderly, or aging.

Two cautions: 1) My Old Kentucky Home is not permitted, and 2) titles as 12-Year-Old Boy will be nixed because the boy isn’t old.
