12 Songs

Song 1 (Amen!)
For one singer:
In response to something someone else has said in casual conversation, unexpectedly stomp foot and/or clap hands loudly.
Shout “Amen!”

Song 2 (Blur)
Tribute to Blur, for one or more singers:
Woo-hoo…
Woo-hoo…

Song 3 (Breathe)
For one or more singers:
Breathe in and out as loudly as you can.

Song 4 (Hey!)
For one singer:
Yell to attract attention, as if finally spying someone you’d been waiting for. Do this action for far longer than is socially comfortable.

Song 5 (Holidays Here Again)
For multiple singers:
Go Christmas caroling in July.

Song 6 (Kiss 1)
Duet for two singers:
Kiss one another loudly on the cheeks in greeting, making a popping sound.

Song 7 (Kiss 2)
Intimate duet for two singers:
Kiss one another on the lips, hot and wet, loud and sloppy. Do this action for far longer than is socially comfortable.

Song 8 (Rabble)
For multiple performers:
In a close-knit group, moving in unison, wander throughout the space, in and out of audience members as possible, mumbling and repeating the following:
Rabble – Rabble – Rabble…

Song 9 (Repeat Re-peat Re-pe-at)
For one singer:
Repeat everything you said.
Talk more slowly.
Over-annunciate.
Continue to do so until it becomes wholly absurd and bears little to no resemblance to the original statement.

Song 10 (Silence)
For one or more singers:
Stand in front of the audience.
Try not to make any sound.  Make even your breathing & movements as minimal and quiet as possible.

Song 11 (Territorial Dispute)
For multiple singers:
Pose and circle one another, imitating birdcalls.

Song 12 (You Are My Sunshine)
For one or more singers:
Sing “You Are My Sunshine” as loudly as possible.
Really ham it up with big sweeping gestures.
Hum the words you don’t know.
