…At The Grindstones

{April 30, 2010}   Pick a Little Tightrope Folks…

Walked by this statue today .. twice. I wanted to snap a quick shot of it the first time but of all things the bench next to it was full of women chatting.. reminded me of a few tunes….

The most recent of which being by a fantastic artist fave of mine Janelle Monae:

The Classic of the trio being from Music Man:

And considered a modern classic, with Missy Elliot:

“Hard to the core.. core to the right…”



Oh and yes, Gwen Stefani did one as well, just not as good. Are there other classic tunes pre-70s that you can think of that work with this?

Neel says:

“The Music Man” is one of my favorites- as is Robert Preston. 🙂

It’s really such a good movie and so well cast. If Family Guy rips things from it, which it did with Shipoopi, then I’d say it’s worth seeking out.. of course there are some people who get the reference the first time with me 🙂

Neel says:

This is at least classic *80’s*…

(Trying an experiment here, with some luck it will work…)
