Mountains Come Out of the Sky

A good friend loves to recount how her junior high jazz choir once did a rendition of Billy Joel's word-crammed "Running On Ice." Just imagining that, hearing that in my head, is a nice shorthand for cheesy, Guffman-esque entertainment-gone-wrong. (Should I call it enhurtainment? Enterpainment? You get the idea.)

Then I saw this. And now I have a visual, and a whole new song, that will spring perkily to mind whenever someone mentions "show choir" or "SATB" or "pops concert." As the song puts it so well: "24 before my life and even in the valley." Lord help us all. (Hat tip: Matt.)
