Suspend your disbelief
 
 
I hear an underscore, can you hear it?
 
 
''Hear what?''

''And you see all these people, they have to speak in rhyme.''
 
 
Thats the ideaaa
 
 
If your everyday life is getting you down, and you're looking for relief, just escape through a musical, suspend your disbelief. When laundry, traffic work and taxes, cause you so much pain. Just think of old gene kelly, when he was singin in the rain.
 
 
'''Hey buddy give that back'''

Duet
 
If your everyday life is getting you down and you're looking for relief, just escape through a musical, suspend your disbelief.
 
Take rodgers and hammerstien 'Suntime and weather(?)' girschwin and bodski and mix them together
 
add in some singers like andrews and garlen, crosby and kelly were just getting started
 
 
Whaddaya say pal?
 
 
''i can hear it''
 
 
Everyone: HALLELUJAH
 
 
''i understand now its all around me''
 
come along
 
''its like my whole world is in a key change''
 
Come along

Come along
 
 
''i want a gilbert and sullivan orchestration, and a webber rock opera innovation! if your everyday life is bringing you down and you're looking for relief, just escape through a musical, suspend your disbelief''

Behind the Scenes

"This oddly popular video was written in a weekend and put together over spring break. Graham called me up and said he had this idea for a musical number. I hummed out a melody, then Graham and I brainstormed lyrics. With a rough chord structure, Graham was able to get me into a small computer lab at Uvic in the Visual Arts building where after four or five days work with the Garage Band program, we were able to pound out the track. We shot it in an afternoon, everyone lip-synching to a scratchy boom-box, Graham being dangerously carted around with his camera on top of a borrowed dolly from the art department. Then the whole thing was edited and put on the site. Thanks again to everyone who helped to put it together. I'm so glad people enjoy it, even though the music isn't as clean as I'd like it to be." - Andy
