    While having a Bacchanalian good time in a British club, with all those high spots especially put in so everyone could laugh at the drunken attempts to sing them. NO WONDER people can't sing it properly, I say everyone who takes a public shot at singing it, should be required to down a few actual shots before - or at least a pint of ale!

      well they get to glissando all over the place while staying on pitch and in proper count.

      Though my favorite is Musetta's tight show induced scream in the second act of La Boheme.  

      Especially since one of my many part time jobs in college was selling shoes.
