  1. It's even funnier when you're working your way backwards through this thread.
  2. At 0:48 it's like Omar Sharif's first appearance in Lawrence of Arabia.
  3. Easily half of Simon & Garfunkel's repertoire would translate pretty well to drum corps, in my opinion.
  4. I rather liked the perspective someone here offered last summer: the 2016 Bluecoats was, in entertainment terms, an update of what Madison Scouts were doing in the 1990s.
  5. Reach out to an admin. If no one has started a 2017 thread, and if you think you can keep one reliably updated, feel free to do so and ask an admin to pin it.
  6. Heh. Apparently The Rock put on the pressure.
  7. I should note that the other Carmen use of a Rach song is "Never Gonna Fall in Love Again". Twin-spin Tuesday?
  8. And if I remember aright, you were also a big fan of Carmel High School's 2016 marching band show, were you not? So your soft spot is for Rachmaninoff works adapted by Eric Carmen.
  9. Thanks for posting that; I didn't realize there was a high-camera video on Youtube; I've only ever seen the multi-cam version.
  10. Re-reading that prologue, I'm thinking a corps should do a show titled "Death Marked".
  11. Movin' right along . . .
  12. So is it a Romeo & Juliet show? Music from Shakespeare in Love? Again the Rota R&J theme from the 1960s? Or Prokofiev? Or Tchaikovsky? Or West Side Story? Or The Cardigans' "Lovefool"? Or Taylor Swift? Here is the Prologue from Shakespeare's tragedy: "Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life; Whole misadventured piteous overthrows Do with their death bury their parents' strife. The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love, And the continuance of their parents' rage, Which, but their children's end, nought could remove, Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage; The which if you with patient ears attend, What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend."
  13. I saw your link and immediately thought, "I hope it's 'Mah Nà Mah Nà'"! I have a Muppets album that includes that one and some other gems. Note that this piece uses "Lullaby of Birdland" as a bridge. Hmm, checking Wikipedia I find that the tune originally comes from a Swedish exploitation film. Crown might appreciate the title: Svezia, inferno e paradiso!
  14. It's fun to watch some key figures in drum corps history reminisce in the roundtable discussion on the Brass Roots video (from circa 1997, I believe). Some interesting conversations there about key moments.
  15. Well, I finally got a prediction right. A couple days late, though. That is all.
