Silly Sundays - Eat Us!

It's the week of Thanksgiving, and that means two things: crazy holiday bargains, and gluttony. Here's a song about gluttony, set at the very first Thanksgiving.

This is from the score of Addams Family Values (also known as Raul Julia's last good movie). The lead vocal is by young Jimmy Workman, who has since retired from acting. (He was working opposite Christina Ricci in those films -- I'd say that's hard to ever top.) The song was written by Marc Shaiman who, of course, is now a big Broadway composer (though he didn't work on the new Addams Family musical).

The buy link is wishful thinking again -- the cheapest used copy on Amazon is $35. I'll be back Wednesday with another wedding song.
