...I'd like to take a second to talk about the very end of the video when Earl is talking about them wanting suggestions for future aca-countdowns. Notice how country was included in his examples...I'm so curious about what songs they'd include if they did one and what they'd do with the songs they chose...I'm going on record as wanting an aca-country countdown. I want it a lot. No, not want. Need. This is something I need in my life. Seriously.
I saw VoicePlay for the first, and so far only, time two days after uploading that first post. By the end of that month, I'd written up a review of the show. They did their version of "Elvira" during their set and that was what I was referring to in this next bit.
Did this satisfy my desire for them to do an ACA Top 10 country countdown? No. No, it did not. If anything, it made it worse. I'm so hoping it happens at some point down the road. I mean, they can sing country music and Layne and Geoff have arranged country music. I'm just saying...I'll even say please with extra Twinkies on top.
If you thought that was the end of the ridiculousness, you underestimated the power of this new countdown. Don't ask me why, but one of the times I watched this, I got to thinking about a song from Les Mis. So it was that a parody was in the works, but then it turned into something else. See what happens when you take Les Mis ("ABC Cafe/Red and Black") and combine it with The Nightmare Before Christmas ("What's This") and a little Brooks & Dunn ("Put a Girl In It") in a little parody medley...thing. The medley that no one wanted, but that got created anyway. Kind of sums up my initial thoughts about ACA Top 10 - Bro Country.
