Terrible TV Tunes

Mighty Joe Young and Friends

She-who-must-be-obeyed is watching a real estate show on HGTV, and there is a singer named Michael Feinstein who wishes to list his house. Mr. Feinstein is in a recording studio, singing Beautiful Dreamer, when the real estate agent provacateur comes to visit and discuss house listing.

I did not want want to say anything, for I have never heard nor heard of  Michael Feinstein, but I did not think I had ever heard a weaker interpretation of Stephen Foster's Beautiful Dreamer. I did not think the 19th century produced such mush.

I am sure that the rendition in the original Mighty Joe Young was ever so much superior to this.
