Skule Nite 1T1

Last weekend was Skule Nite, a "musical sketch comedy revue". Quite hilarious, of course. Just for your listening fun, here are most of the songs on which the parts were based. You're going to just have to imagine the words are funnier, though.

  1. Let's Bring it Back - OK, so I've been listening to the rest of the songs so much, I don't remember how this one sounds...
  2. I Don't C.A. Problem (CA meaning Captain America, of course) - U Can't Touch This (MC Hammer)
  3. Fuji Boys - This is obviously Jersey Boys (based on the music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons)
  4. Defying Tragedy - clearly this one's Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen)

  5. Intermission

  6. Petition - Tradition (from Fiddler on the Roof)
  7. A Thoroughly Modern Skule Nite - Thoroughly Modern Millie (OK, I didn't recognize that one at the show and totally had to Google it, but it seems right.)
  8. The Perfect Man - It's Raining Men (The Weather Girls)
  9. Finale - OK, I totally forgot this one. Was is December, 1963 from above (which has the line "Oh, what a night")? I keep remembering the finale based on "Tonight" from a couple years ago.

I'm very glad to hear you liked the show!!

For the sake of completeness, I just had to chime in on your post:

1) The show opener was based on "I Want You Back" by the Jackson Five.

2) There was actually a double meaning in the use of the initials "CA". CA in this case stood for Captain America, as you noticed, but also for the Chief Attiliator.
Musically, there was the usage of not only "U Can't Touch This" but also "Superfreak" by Rick James.

3) There were only three songs in the Fuji Boys series... "Oh What a Night" didn't get used until the very end of Act 2.

5) This one also referenced "The Bottle Dance" from Fiddler.

7) This one used "It's Raining Men", but also "Mr. Roboto" by Styx.

8) This one was entirely "December 1963 (Oh What a Night)" but referenced every other song in the show during the curtain call.

The one you're getting it mixed up with is "Tonight, Tonight" from West Side Story. That was the show finale in Skule Nite 0T8.
