The Monday Song
Sorry, today you get a song because I took the day off! I worked until 2:00am and as it was a glorious morning thought I should get a long walk in. Later in the week there’ll be books, wordcraft, London, film, all the usual subjects, but now…
What is it about musicals set in Scotland where the main character dreams of being as far away from the place as possible? In ‘Anna and the Apocalypse’ Anna dreams of going to Australia. In ‘Sunshine on Leith’ they want to go to America (although I think that was dictated by the Proclaimers’ song title). And Scotland is such a fantastic place, especially at this time of year – go figure.
This is the karaoke version of ‘Turning My Life Around’ from ‘Anna and the Apocalypse’, one of the few apocalyptic Scottish Christmas high school zombie musicals in recent memory. It was low budget but delightful, and has become a bit of a cult. If you missed it, that’s because it had to fight for space in cinemas at Christmas, when Hollywood block-books all the screens.
