God I loved that musical! The last song I have listened to will shortly be My House from Matilda: the Musical.I was listening to "Telly" from Matilda: The Musical (which I forgot I even owned, much less had in my car), and was highly amused by the song's lyrics ("Telly," of course, being a reference to television)
Somewhere, on a show I heard
That a picture tells a thousand words
So telly if you bothered to take a look
Is the equivalent of like.....lots of books!
All I know I learnt from telly
The bigger the telly, the smarter the man
You can tell from my big telly
Just how clever a feller I am
I was never really all that aware of them, but then I had a kid who turned out to be a director of Musical Theatre. I was quite savage that there were so many wonderful musicals I had never known.As odd as it may sound, musicals are just about the only music I listen to. Mostly because the songs individually and collectively tell a story.
