One of the best things about my job is the fact that I can listen to music all day, but that makes for some crazy playlists. Today, for example, I listened to Hedwig and the Angry Inch (Original B'way version, in case you were wondering), Roast Beef of Old England and Spring Awakening, a new-ish musical. I think the show is cool and important, but the music is sort of pop/boy-bandish and a little annoying to listen to via headphones.
Roast Beef is the CD I bought to reward myself for having apartment, it's a collection of Navy chanties from Nelson's navy. Some of the songs get stuck in your head, but I haven't quiiite learned all the lyrics yet. That hasn't stopped me from singing as I trot back and forth between the racks though:
Farewell and adieu to you Spanish Ladies,
Farewell and adieu, to you ladies of Spain
For we are commanded to sail for Gibralter
We hope we may shortly see you again.
We'll rant and we'll rave like true British sailors
We'll rant and we'll rave, all on the salt sea.
Until we strike soundings in the channel of old England.
From Ushant to Scilly is thirty-five leagues.
