The Magnetic Fields - Parades Go By.m4a

EDIT: Now that the parade is over and there's no danger of ruining "spoilers" for anyone, here's our Tweets, in reverse chronological order (newest to oldest):

  • Kermit has had, sadly, one of the best voices we've heard today.
  • @mirandate no bari sax for Jess... this is from June's experience. 
  • Marching with a bari sax? From experience I can tell you: not easy.
  • @Sarakenobi I'm sure it'll be up on YouTube before the end of the day.
  • Gotta admit: Charice has an incredible set of pipes.
  • RICKROLL!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Skinny Al Roker is creepy.
  • a marching band played gary numan's "cars" my life is complete!
  • Disco-soul-funk remix of "The Age of Aquarius"... thumbs down.
  • Clique Girlz = Hanson???
  • I think I have this song on my Sesame Disco! tape from 1979: http://tinyurl.com/67n2qr!
  • There is nothing man has ever dreamed of more than scaling the mighty rhinocerous! (but srsly, WTF?)
  • Conch shell is the new cowbell.
  • hey june you crack your alter-twitter-ego up -can u also post them on vk too??
  • "Fantasia on Georgia Tech Themes" could possibly be the least inspiring music title ever
  • James Taylor has seen better days.
  • I love the Rockettes so much. They should team up with Bono to make world peace happen sooner. Or something.
  • I was hoping for the Simpsons version of this song. Still, some childhood illusions are being ruined right now.
  • Harry Connick, Jr.: stick to music, not jokes plz.
  • @doctoracula Did you notice that their poodle skirts actually had reindeer on them? Awesome. (I swear I'm not 60 years old) 
  • One of the greatest musicals of all time to be sure, but South Pacific isn't the same without Robert Guilet. 
  • Finally, a holiday musical for those of us who miss Lawerence Welk! 
  • When it comes to recent musicals about NY neighborhoods, In The Heights < Avenue Q
  • liveblogging the Macy's Thanksgiving parade: did Girl Talk do this opener for the cheerleaders?
