Wait, Orchestra Conductors Actually Do Something?

 

Not Actually the BBC Orchestra

Not Actually the BBC Orchestra

“Please Krusty, this is very demeaning.” – Sideshow Mel
“Shut up and conduct!” – Krusty the Klown

The BBC had a game show on last year called “Maestro” where various British celebrities (none of whom this Yank recognized) competed to learn how to conduct an orchestra, with the winner getting to conduct the BBC Orchestra live in Hyde Park.  In the first round the eventual winner, Sue Perkins, conducted the Simpsons theme.  YouTube, would you do the honors?

It’s a little bit different than the version to which we’re all accustomed, but I like it.  (You can click here to download an mp3.)  If you’d like to see a longer clip from the show, which includes a bit of context and the judge’s scores, it’s here.  

(And just like that, our weekend long post drought is over thanks to an old standby right out of the lazy blogger handbook: the YouTube clip.)

Useful Legal Tidbit

Even though it’s obvious to anyone with a functional frontal lobe and a shred of morality, we feel the need to include this disclaimer. This website (which openly advocates for the cancellation of a beloved television series) is in no way, shape or form affiliated with the FOX Network, the News Corporation, subsidiaries thereof, or any of Rupert Murdoch’s wives or children. “The Simpsons” is (unfortunately) the intellectual property of FOX. We and our crack team of one (1) lawyer believe that everything on this site falls under the definition of Fair Use and is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. No revenue is generated from this endeavor; we’re here because we love “The Simpsons”. And besides, you can’t like, own a potato, man, it’s one of Mother Earth’s creatures.
