The big crapple

So, New York City has a theme song now. And no, it's not Jonathan Richman's "Springtime in New York", as it should be. It's "New York: For the Time of Your Life". I know. Already: bleh. And it's by Frank Wildhorn, who gave us such ossified musicals as "Jekyll and Hyde" and "Dracula: The Musical", so I'm sure your eardrums are already cringing in anticipation. Let's just say the song itself totally lives up to the promise of the title and composer.

(Via Gothamist.)

(Side note: That little clicking sound you don't hear is my imaginary odometer clicking over -- this is Heaneyland's 1000th post!)

It's like when Albert Brooks rewrote the National Anthem in the style of Burt Bacharach: "Hey! Know a place! It's got trees, it's got mountains..."

God, that's gutwrenchingly ghastly. Did you notice it stole its main tune from Tom Lehrer's "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park"?
