Musical interlude: "Birdhouse in Your Soul"
How much did we all love Colleen's moving post about Andrew's graduation yesterday? (C'mon, give it up for Colleen!) I'm up to my neck in deadline soup, but I wanted her to have a chance to recover from the festivities, so I'm posting a tasty little trifle today to nudge your thoughts about originality, creativity, and what works.
Every once in a while we get a great reminder that an idea that would sound too bizarrely unworkable for words if you tried to explain it to someone...well, it can fly. Above is a little snippet of a song featured last season on Pushing Daisies, the astonishingly...astonishing TV show created and directed by Bryan Fuller. Kristin Chenoweth and Ellen Green -- two Broadway icons who look great on TV -- deliver a different take on "Birdhouse in Your Soul", a song originally (emphasis on "original") done by They Might Be Giants. And below is the They Might Be Giants version. Pure poetry. And another reminder that anything and everything is allowed.
Let your thoughts wonder.
