Roommates 27 - Karaoke Pt 2

Suffering abounds. I apologize profusely for any trauma the choice of songs inflicted.

Jareth sings:
"(Hit Me) Baby One More Time" written by Denniz PoP and Max Martin (as performed by Britney Spears)

Erik sings:
"I Feel Pretty" from West Side Story, music by Bernstein and lyrics by Sondheim

Jareth's song was actually the hardest to choose; Erik's was the easiest because it was picked on a "What would be the most inappropriate but ironically appropriate song for the Phantom of the Opera to sing?" basis.

Erik and Christine belong to Leroux and Webber.
Jareth and Sarah belong to Henson, Lucas, Bowie and Connelly.
Norrington belongs to Disney and Bruckheimer.
Javert belongs to Hugo, Boublil, Schonberg, and Kretzmer.
Legolas belongs to Tolkein.

Aw, no song for Legolas?  Michael Rouse (as a brunette Legolas) did sing Lothlorien in Lord of the Rings: The Musical, but that wouldn't cause any laughs now, would it?

I mean, Tolkien's songs are nothing to write home about in terms of melodies.  But they add a sense of lore and legend to this alternate universe of Middle Earth.

What, Jareth's not doing a David Bowie song? (ducks random flying objects)

This is still one of my favorites.  I really can picture Jareth singing that, and doing a SMASHING job. :)

I'm actualy with Erik when it comes to Jareth's song... But this time I'm drinking smirnoff, so I look the song up on youtube and immagined Jareth singing. I laughed loud enough for my dog to wake up and come check on me

I like Erik's song, and it's the last thing I can picture him singing.  An alternate lyric for the start is :sing: I feel pretty, and witty, and bright.  And I pity any girl who isn't me tonight. :sing:  In the bonus stuff for Frozen, I found out that Santino Fontana, Christopher in the OBC of Rodger's and Hammerstein's Cinderella and Hans in the movie, sang "I Feel Pretty" for his audition.  That left me in stitches, especially since I had heard him singing that on YouTube before I found out that fact.
P.S.  Erik, I too would never picture Jareth singing that song, nor tolerate it, unless I was drunk beyond belief.  And I will never be drunk beyond belief.

I live in a house full of people and everyone's asleep... trying so hard not to laugh with varying degrees of success.

This is comic perfection. Kudos my friend!

I predict horrible nightmares involving Erik prancing around in a dress singing that song.
I don't normally resort to the sayings of my generation, but I feel I can make an appropriate exception here...
This is LOVE

Ohmygods.... you've just ressurected my inner Javert fangirl. (She died when Russel Crowe was cast in the movie)

I don't know which is funnier -- the traumatized reactions of Javert, Norrington and Erik, or the traumatized AND paranoid reaction of Legolas! OMG, this is epic! Epic, epic, EPIC!
