Zomg Eddie Perfect is the greatest human being ever concieved!


<- THIS is Eddie Perfect. Oh my fucking God what a legend! Tonight I saw the first musical he ever wrote and I now have a purpose in life. 10/10 for political insight, 9.9/10 for orchestration and song construction (the 0.1 I took off was probably the performers - not Eddie. Mind you, very talented group of performers *applauds VCA*), I was a little disappointed with the lack of storyline and fluidity within the show but hey, I just go to musicals to hear songs sung in context.

So back to my new purpose in life. Not really my sole purpose, but just something that has to be done no matter what. Anyway, I need that music. I don't care how I get it. The main problem is that it won't be released in CD or sheet music form until it goes pro, and there is a probability that it won't go pro :( So the only way to get it is to be in a production of the show (highly unlikely), or to stalk Eddie until he agrees to hand over the music (highly likely - especially as I have 4 months of holidays starting in November).

If there are any other ways of getting the music of the musical "UP" by Eddie Perfect, TELL ME NOW!!!


Peace, love and mungbeans

P.S. Where does the "yes, we have no bananas" line come from? 'Tis part of a song...

Folk Song written By: Frank Silver and Irving Cohn (1923)
There's a fruit store on our street
It's run by a Greek.
And he keeps good things to eat
But you should hear him speak!

When you ask him anything, he never answers "no".
He just "yes"es you to death,
And as he takes your dough, he tells you...

"Yes! We have no bananas
We have no bananas today!!
We have string beans and onions, cabBAges and scallions
And all kinds of fruit and say
We have an old fashioned toMAHto
A Long Island poTAHto, but

Yes! We have no bananas
We have no bananas today!"

Business got so good for him that he wrote home today,
"Send me Pete and Nick and Jim; I need help right away."
When he got them in the store, there was fun, you bet.
Someone asked for "sparrow grass"
and then the whole quartet
All answered:

"Yes, we have no bananas
We have-a no bananas today.
Just try those coconuts
Those wall-nuts and doughnuts
There ain't many nuts like they.
We'll sell you two kinds of red herring,
Dark brown, and ball-bearing.
But yes, we have no bananas
We have no bananas today."
