Let’s just take a look, shall we? Here we go:

  2. The More You Ruv Someone - Avenue Q, Original Broadway Cast

    Kate Monster:
    Why can’t people get along and love each other, Christmas Eve?

    Christmas Eve:
    You think getting along same as loving?
    Sometimes love right where you hating most, Kate Monster.

    Kate Monster:

    Christmas Eve:
    The more you love someone,
    The more you want to kill ’im.
    The more you love someone,
    The more he make you cry

    Though you are try
    For making peace
    With them and loving,
    That’s why you love so strong
    You like to make him die!

    The more you love someone,
    The more he make you crazy.
    The more you love someone,
    The more you wishing him dead!

    Sometime you look at him
    And only see fat and lazy,
    And wanting baseball bat
    For hitting him on his head!


    Kate Monster:

    Christmas Eve:
    And hate

    Kate Monster:
    And hate

    Christmas Eve:
    They like two brothers

    Kate Monster:

    Christmas Eve:
    Who go on a date

    Kate Monster:

    Christmas Eve:
    Where one of them goes,
    Other one follows
    You inviting love
    He also bringing sorrows

    Kate Monster:
    Ah, yes.

    Christmas Eve:
    The more you love someone,
    The more you want to kill ’im.
    Loving and killing
    Fit like hand in glove!

    Kate Monster:
    Hand in glove.

    Christmas Eve:
    So if there someone
    You are wanting so
    To kill ’im.
    You go and find him.
    And you get him.
    And you no kill him.
    ’Cause chances good

    He is your love.

  3. Golden Shower of Hits - Circle Jerks
  4. Gently Tender - The Incredible String Band
  5. Chances Are - Johnny Mathis
  6. You’re Drivin’ Me Crazy - Squirrel Nut Zippers
  7. Harlem Swing - Django Reinhardt
  8. Stompin’ with Fess - Professor Longhair
  9. Muffin Man - Frank Zappa

    The Muffin Man is seated at the table in the laboratory of the Utility Muffin Research Kitchen. Reaching for an oversized chrome spoon, he gathers an intimate quantity of dried muffin remnants. And brushing his scapular aside, proceeds to dump these inside of his shirt...

    He turns to us and speaks:
    “Some people like cupcakes better. I, for one, care less for them!”

    Arrogantly twisting the sterile canvas snoot of a fully charged icing anointment utensil, he poots forth a quarter-ounce green rosette (oh, ah, yuk yuk. Let’s try that again...!) He poots forth a quarter-ounce green rosette near the summit of a dense but radiant muffin of his own design.

    Later he says:
    “Some people...some people like cupcakes exclusively, while I, myself, say there is naught, nor ought there be, nothing so exalted on the face of God’s grey earth as that prince of foods...The Muffin!”

    Girl you thought he was a man
    But he was a muffin
    He hung around ’til you found
    That he didn't know nuthin’
    Girl you thought he was a man
    But he only was a-puffin’
    No cries is heard in the night
    As a result of him stuffin’

    [This song is dedicated to the lovely Boudicca.]
