The Greatest Showman came uncomfortably close to replacing the Grease soundtrack as my favorite musical soundtrack.
Grease had been the only musical I had ever loved for as far back as I could remember. After being forced to go watch The Greatest Showman, I ran out and bought the first CD I had bought in over five years. Then, I went back to watch the movie again. It happened that quickly and I was addicted.
One night after my fifth viewing of the movie, feeling good, I decided to jot down what would be the soundtrack to my life.
I have written the playlist here for your amusement and/or sympathy. I hope at least one would be performed by Hugh Jackman because, let’s face it, who knew he could sing like that. But, I’m not one to be unrealistic, so I have added other singers as well.
What The F*&k Is This? Song performed by Hugh Jackman with confused and erratic dancing by Sunny Heights Retirement Village
That Escalated Quickly! Song performed by Will Ferrell with John O’Reilly on drums.
It’s Not Me, It’s You – performed by Justin Bieber dressed in his famous denim/ramen combo. The song covers years 16 through 23.
I Got This! I Don’t Need Child Support— sung to a beautiful gospel hymn, the head matriarch of the Duggar family leads the song in this one.
Somebody Hold Me Back! — As performed by Mike Tyson. Some of it is kind of hard to understand, but that runs along with the theme of my life perfectly.
Things Have To Get Better— performed by the rapper known as Ludacris
Things Have To Get Better (volumes two through ten)many rappers from Eminem to R. Kelly but not the prism version.
Why Does God Pick On Me? — Performed by Morgan Freeman
Now, that I have written down my soundtrack, I only have to write the songs, get the talent, and record the album. Piece of cake.
I hope that one day I will be able to put my life story on the silver screen for the public’s consumption and enjoyment. I know it will be a while because we don’t have the capabilities to use special effects to that level of difficulty. And I’m not sure that the public is ready for a tragedy of that nature at this point. Also, whoever played me might get depressed and would definitely get injured on a near constant basis.
Keep your eyes on me, though. One day you might know my name for me, aka this Kylie), instead of a makeup Queen related to someone that hasn’t done anything but make a sex tape.
