If real life were played out like a musical, how many people do you imagine you'd massacre?

Asked by ucme (46216points) May 6th, 2011

Just a hypothetical scenario, thank goodness. I’m talking about movie musicals here by the way. Yes there are some good ones, absolutely true. However, if the shenanigans were to be replicated in real life, as you went about your daily business, i’m not so sure how i’d react. Initially i’d probably play along with the melodic merriment, but i’m guessing, before too long it would start to grind. Imagine, for example, being in your local butchers & the guy behind the counter randomly bursts into song. Everyone in the place knows the words by heart, except you. “Would you like my sausages, they’re the best for miles around!” Shut up already!! So yeah, what do you think? Merry Melodies or pump action shotgun? XD

I don’t think I’d be driven to violence. I watch Glee on purpose!

I think I’d end up killing everyone until they stopped singing. I am a singer, I love musical theater, but I would go mad if that happened every day.

Just so you know, I sang the “Would you like my sausages, they’re the best for miles around!” bit in an extremely manly voice. Funny as hell!

@KatetheGreat Oh believe me, so did I, only mine came out a little like Pavarotti for some reason XD

Some people I would let sing to me, if they were people I liked…some would probably end up getting shot (mainly those who annoy me at my job as it is, let alone without singing…)

@ucme Star in a musical with me? Hahahahaha.

Randy's avatar

All of them.

Give me some earplugs, PLEASE!

yankeetooter's avatar

Definitely all of the off key people, that’s for sure…or would everyone have perfect pitch in this world?

ucme's avatar

@KatetheGreat Yeah it’d be called “The Strangled Cat” with my warbling efforts :¬(

ucme's avatar

@yankeetooter No, they would sing “warts & all” style i’m afraid.
@KatetheGreat Oh okay then you’re on. Just don’t come crying to me when we’re pelted with rotten fruit & veg okay? XD

yankeetooter's avatar

Oh, then raise the body count for me @ucme…I can’t bear off key singing, lol!

It would be neat though to discover those who could sing all along, but were always to shy to sing for others…

Facade's avatar

I’d love it. OMG I’d love it so much.

If it happened today I wouldn’t kill anyone, I think it would be great, as long as I knew the words, I’d sing along. Of course when I find myself in a bad mood they would all have to die, naturally.

yankeetooter's avatar

What if you were in a bad mood, @lemming, and then someone with a lovely voice started singing to you and cheered you up? Hopefully you would not shoot them then, lol!

I guess I like hearing people with good singing voices…:)

lemming's avatar

I don’t know @yankeetooter, I’m pretty determined!

yankeetooter's avatar

Maybe it’s just me, @lemming, but I can definitely be soothed/wooed by a nice tenor voice…sigh!

KateTheGreat's avatar

@ucme Hahahaha! I doubt it’s THAT bad.

If real life were a musical, I’d probably be Lady Macbeth times ten.

iamthemob's avatar

I would learn the music. ;-)

rock4ever's avatar

I would lock myself in my room and never come out! The only musical I wish to hear is the one outside my window consisting of crickets, birds, and breaking branches!

yankeetooter's avatar

How heavy are those birds, anyway @rock4ever ? Breaking branches?

rock4ever's avatar

No squirrels break the branches :)

rock4ever's avatar

Haha I would love to see a blue jay sit on a tree branch and have it snap!

yankeetooter's avatar

This could perhaps be rigged up…

iphigeneia's avatar

Merry melodies for sure! I’ve always wanted to improve my improvisation skills. Of course, I don’t think I could eat pies ever again. And stay the hell away from that strange and unusual plant in the window.

KateTheGreat's avatar

@rock4ever Silly you. Those aren’t squirrels breaking branches. That’s just your secret stalker spying on you! Hahahahahaa.

rock4ever's avatar

@KatetheGreat Wouldn’t doubt it!!! ; D

I started college as a music major, and we used to do this on purpose. We’d set a day for it and make all of our communication musical in some way. No one ever died, but one girl’s boyfriend almost dumped her when she insisted on keeping it up the whole day.

ucme's avatar

@SavoirFaire I wonder why that doesn’t suprise me…....oh yeah.

SavoirFaire's avatar

@ucme Which part doesn’t surprise you?

ucme's avatar

@SavoirFaire The girl’s boyfriend almost dumping her.

SavoirFaire's avatar

@ucme Yeah, he was a science major—and he was not amused.
