  • Gee, Officer Krupke…

    So I just saw West Side Story for the first time. Yeah yeah, I know, I know… Anyway, great musical movie. Loved the dancing. The music was hit or miss with me… I love the Maria theme and I especially Mambo number, but some of the numbers fell kind of flat with me. I think some of it had to do with the fact that I thought the lead guy was a little weird… There was something not quite right about his voice. Also, it amazes me that the lyrics are all by the same guy. Some of it is painfully cheesy, and some of it is pure (Sondheim) genius. I think this Officer Krupke song has some of the most clever lyrics I’ve ever heard: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pq28qCklEHc

    Which reminds me of one of the funniest bits ever from Curb Your Enthusiasm: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DkoXjnAm88s
