Musical Mondays: Pirates of Penzance - I Am The Very Model Of A Modern Major-General (#9).

[Every Monday, I'm going to be counting down my 52 favorite musical numbers from musical movies and TV shows. I might not like the full movie/show, but the number makes the list for various reasons: 1) I have to like the song, 2) the visual of how the number is performed is most likely unique or fun, 3) both song and visual mixes well to create an exciting or powerful number. So let's get to the next on the list.]

It's been many years since I've seen the full film, but I've always not only loved this song, but been amazingly impressed with it. It's a fantastic number lyrically alone. There's not much more to say than that. Interestingly, I actually prefer this stage rendition than the film rendition, so I'm going to link to that instead. But don't worry--It's the same guy who does it in both versions. Check it out! It's insane.
