My hope is these discussion posts will continue to elicit comments in the weeks and months after they’re initially published. Have a suggestion about something you think might be worth discussing? Let me know and maybe it will become my next Monday M*A*S*H Discussion topic.
Today’s topic is: What’s the worst M*A*S*H musical moment?
Is There One?
In May 2018, the very first Monday M*A*S*H Discussion topic asked readers to pick the favorite M*A*S*H musical moment. Today we’re discussing the opposite: the worst musical moment on M*A*S*H. To be honest, I’m having a hard time thinking of a musical moment that is truly bad. It’s easy to come up with musical performances I enjoy and/or appreciate, like “Gee, Ma, I Wanna Go Home” from “Movie Tonight” (Season 5) or “Dona Nobis Pacem” from “Dear Sis” (Season 7).
Am I having trouble thinking of a bad musical moment because there weren’t any? Or because the bad ones are easily forgotten unlike the funny or poignant musical moments, which are more memorable?
The one musical moment that immediately sprung to mind when I settled on this topic for today’s post was Margaret’s rendition of “C’est Magnifique,” also from “Movie Tonight.” Her performance is, in my opinion, supposed to last too long and she’s not supposed to be the greatest singer, so it doesn’t seem fair to label it the worst musical moment from the series.
