Because the only way to survive temperatures that don't rise above zero for a day and a half is to listen to this song on your iPod as you walk from building to building. Take in the melody, imagine yourself wearing a ri-COCK-ulous hat like Judy's, and as you walk amongst the piles of snow, come up with a little dance. Even a a simple shoulder roll on every other downbeat will do wonders to keep your spirits up, you testicles low and your blood from freezing.
A close second in "Saving the Life of the Incredibly Freezing Man" is this number from Grease 2 - - a movie musical so bad, it's REALLY bad, and so REALLY bad, it's good.
My ipod shuffled to this song when I was walking home a couple of days ago and I was immediately transported out of the cold and into a warm bowling alley. With Adrian Zmed. (I know...)
Here it is, a showtune about bowling. "We're Gonna Score Tonight!" Get it? Yeah, puns!
Lorna Luft's sassy spin at the 1:38 mark is hilarious. And makes me want to be her. Desperately. Which of course means that the intense cold has warped my brain.
I need some Liza and a heat wave STAT!
