Cake all round and don’t spare the marzipan. The 50th Full Catastrophe could have been an excuse to wallow in previous near-triumphs. Instead, it was a chance to play a heap of new tunes (new to the show, that is) and ponder life, the universe and the Western Bulldogs.
On behalf of the official receiver, here is the celebratory playlist:
Was It Worth It? – Pet Shop Boys
Oh lordy, it has been!
Tits On The Radio – Scissor Sisters
Pack Up Your Sins – Dorothy Loudon
Dorothy is not a well known name, which is a huge shame. She had a great voice and enormous humour. She could also sell a song
Only A Rose – Geraint Watkins
This is a Welsh bloke, but you would never know it !!
Killer Queen – Queen
Amacord – Nino Rota
For Pete’s Sake – Monkees
Lisa Lan – Endaf Emlyn
What More Do I Need – Dawn Upshaw
Dawn is one of the few opera stars who can straddle many musical worlds. The track is from Stephen Sondheim’s “Saturday Night”, see her here in opera mode.
I’m Sick Of You Tasting Of Somebody Else – Marc Almond
Love Carefully – Frank Bennett
The Penis Song – Eric Idle
St Exuberant – Paris Combo
Ain’t No Sunshine – Michael Jackson
Cuddle Me – Dennis Lotis
Unforgetable Season – Cut Copy
Minor Glue – Twinset
Specialisation – Marilyn Monroe
You’re Just In Love – Ethel Merman & Dick Haymes
For another version of this song, have a look at the Muppets and Cleo Lane. It’s a bit strange
Cast Of Thousands – Craig Carnelia
Carnelia is, in my opinion, a huge talent. His songs are one act plays. He deserves much wider recognition. Here’s another of his songs, being sung by someone who proves that beanies are always sexy!
Ladies Who Lunch – Camp (soundtrack)
To put this track in context have a look at the clip from “Camp”. It’s a hoot with on of the best lines ever. Feast your optics
Last Dance – Donna Summer
We’ll 57 seconds of it…fortunately the 7th Cavalry,musically speaking was:
The Only Way Is Up- Yazz
