Trying to think of an appropriate Sunday interlude song to represent the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017 was tough. I’ve never felt less hopeful for a new year.
But I still have my sense of humor. So this “Blazing Saddles'” song by the precious Madeline Kahn seems to sum it up while interjecting sex and snark. “I’m Tired” fits the mood for many of us. Playing Lili Von Shtupp, here’s Madeline Kahn defining 2016 for me:
Kahn left this place just over 17 years ago And so many creatives left this place in 2016. Maybe they knew something we do not. I don’t think the track of departures will stop this new year. For those of us left here, we have our work cut out for us. As my friend Marilyn says, “We’re in this together; after all, we’re all we have.”
