    hahah great post Luke! No vocals?

  2. Andrew: Encore Entertainment says :

    I LOVE this post. I love the choices (Especially cello) but where you really sell me is "On bells, Sister Aloysius (Doubt)": classic. And for vocals – I nominate John and June, Giselle, Christian & Satine and Mrs. Lovett – for refreshments.

  3. Luke says :

    Castor: I considered it of course, but there were simply too many to choose from. It almost deserves a separate post…Andrew: Those singers would definitely make my tops for vocalists. (Love the Sweeney "refreshments" crack.)

  4. Jose says :

    Cutest post ever. I love that you included Raimunda of course.

  5. Simon says :

    This is the best name for a post ever.(and on vocals, Laura from Brick….)

  6. Robert says :

    Hahaha! Amazing. I especially loved seeing Mickey Crabbe and the Sister Aloysius on Bells cracked me up.

  7. Malcolm says :

    This is great! I kept laughing when I saw this…. especially seeing Sister Aloysius's bells get recognized.
