I know, but I don't want to take a chance on getting dictated something with Gene Kelly or something similar to his style of musical. It's safer for me to just bow out this month. Anyway, it will give me more opportunity to attack Smirnoff's Top 100.

I was feeling wishy-washy about the theme, but 1SO's musical examples are all great.

You should take a gander at the main Marathon page which starts tomorrow.

Have you ever seen Phantom of the Paradise?

I second Phantom of the Paradise. An awesome, (semi) non-conventional musical.

I haven't.  I've never even heard of it.  I just did a quick google search.  Is it Rocky Horror-style camp? 

I've been avoiding the main marathon b/c of time.   A quick dictation sounds more my speed, if I'm understanding the "rules" correctly.
