Clips from the October 13th concert version of "Stranger Sings! A Parody Musical" at Feinstein's/54 Below

I love Ariana Grande's new album but tbh sometimes I feel odd jamming out to "7 Rings" cause I don't feel a song about having money is very applicable to my life. SO I made a version that feels more aligned to the experience of being a young adult living in New York City.

Ariana Grande has had one of the hardest years of her life so far (in my opinion) and had to do it all in the public eye with everyone throwing their own opinions and think pieces at her. Despite this, she’s still gone and released tongue-in-cheek, fun pop songs like this as singles while keeping the more somber tracks for her b-sides. I think this is a testament to her commitment to focusing on the lighter aspects of life while not ignoring the darkness. Plus this song is all that plays in my head at the gym when I see my Gym Husbands (aka men who go to my gym who I’ve decided I will marry).

 
 
 
 

Amélie was not a show without its faults and I accept that. However, I have no issue admitting that I loved that show and I still love this score. As someone who grew up with a lot of anxiety and always felt disconnected to the world around the show really resonated with me in a way I was fully not expecting. Feeling equal parts brazenly determined and debilitatingly anxious was a juxtaposition I’m not sure I had ever seen onstage before, and one that resonated with me in a beautiful way.
