“Life is Pandemonium” – The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Music and Lyrics: William Finn
Pandemonium ensues in abundance in this musical which covers the proceedings and various hijinks of the titular competition. First, the spellers in this song complain when another contestant is given an easy word. Next, they approve when another contestant is eliminated due to a technicality in the song’s reprise. Since today is officially Pandemonium Day, if things go awry, embrace it, and save your complaints for another day.
