Melvyn Bragg and John Cleese are stars in the musical Jack’s Big Music Show. Jack is described by his friend Tinkerbell as “a boy who is afraid of music”. As a result of an accident, Melvyn Bragg transforms into a rapping, guitar-stricken rock star. He travels across America, performing until someone spots him, and then enters a contest to become the best-known jack-o-lantern in the country. Do you ever wonder how the big music show got his groove back?
Jack’s Big Music Show becomes a sensation. Sales of tickets to the contest to get the title of biggest jack-o-lantern shoot up. Jack refuses to step down from his perch, despite the crowds’ calls for him to do so. He is crowned king of the jack-o-lanterns and sets about performing his daily routine, which consists of singing and jokes to the crowd.
Unfortunately, his popularity lasts only as long as it takes him to reach the stage after his performance. When he lands on the stage, he greets the audience with a toast. Then he starts his song, but before he can begin it, the audience realizes that he has forgotten his trademark drink. Suddenly, he’s a drink-less recliner, surrounded by glass paper. This prompts him to stumble onto the stage, whereupon he’s decked out in his best costume and starts performing his original hit, “Take Me Out to the Ball Game”.
Jack’s Big Music Show eventually goes on to become a popular TV show. The cast features a number of celebrities, including Will Smith, Whoopi Goldberg, Michael Jackson, Diahann Carroll, En Vogue, Faith Hill, Mariah Carey, and many more. The cast also includes dancers. It was so popular that the cast even sued their record label, wishing to get their recording deals changed.
The show became the talk of the nation. People all over the world loved it! It was even immortalized on the album “Famous Mothers”. The music video for that track became an instant classic.
Now, we all know what happened after the original run of the show ended. Nobody was left sitting around waiting for the revival to take place. But, it didn’t. In fact, the show got a whole new wave of popularity! People started watching again. Why?
It seems that the producers of Jack’s Big Music Show just knew they had hit upon something special. The song just kept going up in popularity and more people became familiar with it. Soon enough, the “Famous Mothers” video went from being a hit single to one of the most recognizable videos ever.
You know what? That is just the beginning. The rest is history. So, you see, Jack’s Big Music Show did something very simple and yet very effective. It just got back the American audience that had once watched him perform and made them excited about the great songs he was still able to perform.
Mel Torme didn’t just escape this trend because he was “no longer” the top man. He stepped right back into the spotlight. He reinvented himself. He became Mr. Popular again.
People loved the fact that Mel Torme was coming back with a vengeance. He made sure that people actually saw him again on his show. People were excited to see him again and they were ready to vote him back into the top spot. He then made a decision that changed everything. He brought back the “Big” music show that he helped make famous.
The “TODAY” show did an excellent job of re-merging Mel Torme back into the spotlight. He performed his hits like “Take Me Away” and “Baby Did a Bad Thing.” He also sang songs that are classics. He showed off his vocals as well as his dancing skills and this was some of the best music and audience interaction that we have seen in a while.
After this show, Jack was interviewed by Oprah and he talked about how he felt. You could tell that he really missed being on the show. He said that he missed it so much that he wanted to quit, but he couldn’t. He also revealed that he had been trying to get back into the limelight for years. He admitted that it wasn’t an easy process. Thanks to “The Big Music Show,” he got back his spotlight and he is back on top.
