CES Minus Apple Equals Showtunes

One thing you may not know about Marc is that he’s a really good singer.

One thing you may not know about me is that I really like musicals.

So when Marc and I decided to bet on whether Apple would exhibit at CES after announcing they were dropping MacWorld, the obvious stakes to put up were that he’d sing a few showtunes of my choosing.

Now that I’ve won (I’m pretty sure that Marc was just humoring me with the whole thing, but I’m not letting that get in the way), I’m working on my choices. I’ve got a big list of songs – my problem is narrowing them down.

But since I know that at least a few people who read this are also musicals fans, I thought I’d ask for suggestions before I make my final decision. So if you’ve got an idea for what you think would be good to have Marc perform, post it here, or reply on Twitter.

And watch this space for the final picks, as well as the release of the videos to YouTube!

    I think “What I did for love” from Chorus Line would be a great choice! And if you’re feeling vindictive, “I Can Do That.” Or, even better, “Dance: 10, Looks: Three”.

    Good times….good times…

    I reckon something like “Ol’ Man River” from Showboat would test out whether he really does have a good voice…..

    Art, “Dance: 10, Looks: Three” is brilliant. I laugh just thinking about Marc singing that one.

    Judy, “Ol’ Man River” is a really good idea, and perfect for Marc’s voice, but I’ve actually heard him sing it once already.

    My top candidates right this minute are:
    “I Am What I Am” from La Cage Aux Folles
    “Old Devil Moon” from Finian’s Rainbow
    “Dance: 10, Looks: Three” from A Chorus Line

    but I’m still open to suggestions.

    How ’bout “Castle on a Cloud” from Les Miserables. That should be a good challenge for a singer with any amount of testosterone at all.
