Okay. An 8 year old singing "Good and Evil" from the musical Jekyll & Hyde. Some background... this is a song sung by a prostitute... Not a prostitot.

She's a great singer, but question being... right? Wrong? Would you let your elementary school child perform a lascivious song? :) I just want to know if I'm making an incorrect judgement call here.. oh, and the lyrics about embracing the devil might squeek some of you out too.. dunno. Fair warning.

And your bit of trivia:

Lena Gilbert Ford wrote the lyrics to the popular song “Keep The Home Fires Burning.” She burned to death in 198 when her home caught fire.

I definitely would not let my kid sing a song of that nature. Even less suggestive sexy songs - I was at a party and this 10 year old sang "Have you Ever REally Loved a Woman" and I was like... uh.... hello parents!?! lol!!!

incidently, i was at barnes/noble, and they were playing linda eder's new cd which has bring on the men on it, and even then i was like "can they play this in a public arena w/dr. seuss books?"

LOL! Seriously!

I love when you hear inappropriate things in stores. Like I was in Virgin after seeing Spring Awakening and they started playing "The Bitch of Living" which totally rocks, but I was slightly amused..

Did you wath this video? I really.. I mean.. it's really adultish.

i mean... even if mom didn't think it was sexual...why would you have your child singing that she wants to be evil and not good? WTF, mom?

Seriously! Or a number of other songs that she's song.. I mean if she all ready sounds like Linda Eder, then she's got a voice that you can try a looooot of different songs with.

Exactly. Hell, even the song Maybe from Annie is a very emotional, great song. That's what I used to use when I was her age.

Also, yes, where are her parents?

I do sing a little. :) But I wouldn't be maintaining my anonymity if I posted a video, would I? ;)

I act a little too.

Too bad none of the things I've acted in that I have a tape of have been very random. Otherwise maybe I could sneak one in there. ;) Alas.

And her parents? I'm assuming posting the videos.

Maybe I only understand it because I know the show...

Here's the lyrics

Artist: Lyrics
Song: Good 'N' Evil Lyrics
LUCY:
Good and evil -
And their merits -
Men have argued through history -
As well they should!
My philosophy
Any child can see -
"Good is evil -
And therefore
All evil is good"

How do you tell evil from good?
Evil does well - good not so good!
Evil's the one that is free everywhere -
Good is the one that they sell!
You must decide which is heaven -
Which is hell!

Good maintain evil's a curse! -
But it is plain good's even worse!
Evil's the one that they tell you to shun -
Good is the one to embrace
Say that and Satan will laugh right in your face!

The battle between good and evil
Goes back to the start -
Adam and Eve and the apple tore Eden apart!
The key thing about good 'n' evil -
Each man has to choose! -
Heaven 'n' hell
Is a helluva gamble to lose! -
But as I peruse
This world we abuse -
It's hell that we choose -
And heaven must lose!

Evil is everywhere -
Good doesn't have a prayer!
Good is commendable -
Evil's dependable!
Evil is viable
Good's unreliable!
Good may be thankable!
Evil is bankable!

Evil's for me - you can have good!
Doesn't suit me to be Robin Hood!
S'easier by far, from the way that things are,
To remain good 'n' evil
Than try to be evil and good!

I couldn't understand a damn word she sung, however, little kids with grown up voices give me the creeps.

After reading the words provided below, I'm sort of indifferent about the lyrics. They're a bit non-sensical.

She has a VERY adult voice. I'm thinking of the context of the show though, which I think is what's really throwing me off.

Oh yes - I know - but since I could't understand any of it, I couldn't supply an opinion...

in every theater/auditioning class i have ever taken (and there have been many) one of the first things they tell you is never to sing a song that's out of your age range. sure, the song is beautiful, and she does it well, but an 8 year old singing about how evil is for her...that's just about as creepy as a 40 year old man singing Castle on a Cloud.

Oh gosh, I've heard the music from that musical (absolutely love 'Bring on the Men', so fun to sing!!) and I don't think an 8-year-old should necessarily be singing it in front of an audience.

I could maybe see it sung at home (if she's a performer or receiving voice lessons to practice her range, mind you there are other sings she can sing) and her parents explaining the song to her, but in front of an audience...*just shakes head*

Makes me wonder. There are just some songs that should be left to older singers.

Not in front of an audience.

Jekyll & Hyde rocked. And let's be honest: I probably put on my older sister's red dress and sang it in front of the mirror a few nights a week times. Although my house was missing the stage's pyro show. :(
