Tigg’s Jesus Christ Superstar post set something weird going in my head. I had I Don’t Know How To Love Him as an ear worm but sung by Elmer Fudd. It went on for a couple of days and I began to wonder if I had actually heard it somewhere so off I went to Google. Elmer Fudd doing JCS isn’t actually a thing but I found a great New Yorker article about a conductor who has plays along to the great Loony Tunes cartoons that use classical pieces such as The Barber of Seville. If you can get past the New Yorker pay wall then the article is great. My favourite line was
“I look at this serious, world-renowned orchestra and I see musicians singing, ‘Oh, Brunhilde, you’re so wuv-wy, yes I know it, I can’t help it.’
I wish someone would make great 5 minute shorts like these again.
