Last spring, I rewrote the lyrics to “My Favorite Things” from the Sound of Music, adapting it to the Kings’ situation in the Playoffs. I had a lot of fun writing it. When I tweeted “My Favorite Kings,” Patrick O’Neal, color man for Kings Live for Fox Sports West, liked it and told me he sang it. I was thrilled!
I wrote a second song this spring about the San Jose Sharks, to the tune of “When You’re a Jet” from Westside Story. I liked the upbeat tempo, compared to the sort of melancholy tone of the first tune. This song was strong and masculine with an in your face attitude.
I didn’t get much of a response to that. I’m thinking, as a woman in her fifties, my taste in musicals is too old and few of my followers had even heard of that song/movie/play.
This time, I decided to choose a song from Grease, which is somewhat newer. Anyway, here’s what’s going on in the Stanley Cup Final right this moment, in song. If you know the tune “Summer Nights,” I hope you’ll enjoy it. If you don’t know the song, you should probably just skip this. LOL
