BBC iPlayer - BBC Proms: 2009: Prom 22 - MGM Musicals

BBC iPlayer - BBC Proms: 2009: Prom 22 - MGM Musicals Seth MacFarlane is a singer in this particularly wonderful string of show tunes. I almost hate to say "show tunes" it's too abbreviated for music that brings back childhood memories of days spent in front of the tele dancing and singing along with the actors--and of course a couple days thereafter. (Over The Rainbow elicited tears.)
The whole series is comprised of indoor and outdoor concerts in England.
Every voice was melodic and captured the idea of each film. As a child, I rarely knew the titles of each film, i like musicals.
I'm listening to it now and it sounds gorgeous! Seth is singing songs from "High Society". Goodness that man's voice is fabulous and rich and expansive. It even fluttered and soared. It takes up the whole theater. Jeez he's talented. Shaboopie!

And who hasn't sang "Singing In the Rain" and performed a quick soft shoe? Okay just me. What a perfect song for Seth to sing.

I'll be happy when he cuts a CD.
