but don't rain on my parade

Don’t Rain on My Parade! (Open)

Alright, sounds good. Now switch to A minor…

Morgan furrowed his brow as he adjusted his fingers across the fretboard of his cheap little lute and frowned a bit at the dissonant sound. Whoops, that would be major… Ah well, there was only so much you could expect when working from a little pamphlet of progressions that the merchant had slipped into Morgan’s hand when he bought the instrument, now a bit crinkled from being shoved into his pocket for safekeeping.

At least it was a nice day outside, Morgan thought as he readjusted himself against the tree he’d propped himself up against. Warm, but with a cool breeze that kept the humidity from getting too stifling. It was a nice location too. Just on the outskirts of camp, far away enough that he didn’t worry too much about bothering anyone with his rudimentary practice. And the sky was a lovely shade of…grey, actually. Morgan scrunched his nose as he felt the ghost of a raindrop hit him. Aw, man.

By the time he had packed up his things, the rain had begun coming down with confidence. As he approached the thicker cluster of tents it was enough to be called a downpour, and Morgan could feel the cold dampness seeping through his coat.  He quickly ducked into his tent, pulling his hood off and shaking his hair out.  It wasn’t until he began to retrieve his lute from within his coat, intending to check for damage, that he looked up and finally realized that in his rush to cover he must have ducked into the wrong tent by mistake.

“Heyy…sorry for barging in, haha. Did you know it was going to rain today?”

Never put on American Idiot The Musical’s soundtrack while we’re driving because during Letterbomb I will scream at cars and forget I am driving and probably get us killed.

I know nobody is visibly holding a camera in the scene when it happens, but one of the things I really wanted for Rachel’s basement party in season 6 was for the kids to get their hands on some footage of the drunk duet from the last time she had a party down there.

Hi there! I have an important audition coming up soon and am having some problems picking my audition song. I have sung Dont Rain on my Parade for several instructors who ended up giving big compliments. I know that song is sometimes thought of as a DO-NOT-SING song for auditions. However, if it's possible that I can pull the song off, do you think I should go for it and audition with it?

It is one of the most notoriously “do not sing” songs, because of Barbra Streisand’s rendition.  I would be very careful using it, and really do some serious looking for other pieces.  Honestly, there are a gajillion killer belt pieces (that’s a technical number, I counted) and it just takes some digging to find the right one for you.  But obviously you don’t have unlimited time to find this and perfect a new piece, so you may be stuck with doing Don’t Rain On My Parade.  I highly recommend endeavoring to find a new piece, though.  I just can guarantee that there are other pieces out there that would fit you wonderfully, it will just take work and dedication to find them!  But again, if you don’t have the time, then I suppose you have to do that one, and it sounds like you’ve got a great grasp on it!  It’s not the end of the world or anything, it just has a huge reputation and is done so often in auditions that I don’t recommend it.

Here’s to Summer 2015
A summer to take risks and try new things.
I’ve been playing it safe lately. Secluding myself so I don’t get hurt.
but not anymore.
Here’s to the Summer where I’m gonna throw all shame out the window and just go for it.

If I see a guy I’m interested in? I’m gonna go for it.
I see an audition I want? Bet your ass I’m going for it.

Here’s to the summer of no regrets, so what are we waiting for? Let’s get kind of crazy ;)

Here’s to the end of letting society rain on my parade ;)
