For Sunday: “I Hate People,” from “Scrooge”

i hate people


“Scrooge” was an interesting movie. (I know it’s a Christmas movie, but the heat of summer makes me long for midwinter.) It had some decent songs, and a couple of great characterizations (Dame Edith Evans as a starchy grandmotherly un-Dickensian Ghost of Christmas Past, and Kenneth More as a huge Dickensian Ghost of Christmas Present).

This song is one of my favorites. I sing it to myself, under my breath, on most workdays, a little.

    We all have days like that, don’t we? – when everybody gets on our nerves. Scrooge of course, takes it to a new level. However, even he learnt to be nice and generous, eventually!
