With the terrible state of American and British musicals lately - trolling the bottoms of various cinematic barrels to make theatrical musicals that are SSSOOOOOO BBBADDDDDD even kids won't watch them - it's good to see that the Europeans - in this case the Flemish - are producing quality engaging wholesome pop musicals suitable for all ages.

I caught this one last night on the South African channel we got during the International Programming Package Free Preview Week on DirecTV. For those of you who are unaware, Afrikaans, Dutch and Flemish are very closely related with a high degree of mutual intelligibility between the three - like Danish Swedish and Norwegian - so the South Africans probably wouldn't have needed subtitles to understand.

The stars are K3 - the Flemish answer to the Spice Girls - with pretty much the same pre-teen female audience as the original, updated for a new generation.

As there are no English subtites, I was surprised that I only needed the Flemish subtitles once in awhile because the Flemish they speak has a lot of overlap to German, Danish and Gaelic - so even if you don't understand it as spoken, once you read the original Flemish subtitles - even as an English speaker you can see a lot of common Germanic word roots and be able to figure a lot of it out yourself.

K3 in Alice in Wonderland - slide over to 1:38:36 for the rousing finale Geloof in Yezelf (literally Believe in Yourself but styled in English a A Thousand Rainbows the first line of the chorus).

I see a thousand rainbows in a row
A sun that never sets
I see a friend who does it all with me
Nobody ever gets us small again
And I'll be there for you.

And to keep it radio-related, here's the Making Of reel where the White Rabbit ``uses'' an old European SW radio with the auto-select to sample all the songs on the soundtrack.

I recently got into Jefferson Airplane and this band got quite big around the late sixties. I also discovered The Flowerpot Men as well as The Californians.

One band I also liked was Fire and that really witty tune "Man In A Teapot".
