So today is my nephew Fyn's big Christmas recital, all the way over in Frankfurt, Germany. Fyn is 7. I WISH I could be there to see the rully, rully, big shoooow, but if I want a taste of it, I'll just put on my Madonna's Greatest Hits CD and give a listen.
Oh yeah, did I mention the theme? MADONNA. No, I ain't talkin' the Virgin Mary. I'm talkin' Like A Virgin.
Guess they do things a bit differently in Germany. Fyn's classes' big number? Vogue. What else? Forget about Silent Night, audience members, the fourth grade class is doing La Isla Bonita. I'm guessing they're saving Papa Don't Preach for the sixth graders. You know, because they're so jaded and all. Germany, meet me at camera three.
WHAT GIVES, Herr German School System? Surrsly - MADONNA? Couldn't just stick to the classics? The old standards? White Christmas? Santa Claus Is Coming to Town? Geez - even Madonna did Sana Baby - how bout that one?
And what about you, Fraulein School Marm - you're in on this too. You didn't think that maybe having 7 and 8 year olds camp it up to Material Girl might be a bit, well, borderline? (I got a million of these, people - Madonna's catalog of work is HUGE).
Well, I guess I'll just wait for a video clip to hit Facebook or YouTube (that baby is SURE to go viral). Reserve judgement until I actually get the opportunity to see it, but come Easter, if the program is a rip-off of Ozz Fest, you'll be hearing from me again.Until then, enjoy THIS. I was GOING to put my favorite Madonna song, 4 Minutes, with my boyfriend JT, but since I couldn't find a video with the embed code, I thought this was the next best thing:
Old man cardi: Charlotte Russe
Button down: Old Navy
White tee: Charlotte Russe
Faux leathas: Target. I TOLD you I was going to wear the hell outta these.
Shoes (which now have a giant extra virgin olive oil stain on the inside of the right sole because I knocked a bottle off the shelf at Price Chopper and it exploded all over the place, even INSIDE my shoe): Old Navy
Scarf: random store in Laguna (helpful, isn't it?)
Ring: Charming Charlie's
