There was a time when Hollywood looked at the day’s most successful Broadway plays for the next potential blockbuster, but now it seems to be happening in reverse. More and more often, we’re finding new Broadway plays based on movies, and horror films especially are finding a niche. Stephen King has seen Carrie, Misery, and The Shining adapted for the stage; with the success of Andy Muschietti’s IT, you can bet someone is already plotting a Broadway version of Pennywise and the Losers Club.
Songwriter and filmmaker Aaron Fraser-Nash has been so inspired by IT, he’s created a growing series of tunes based on the novel-turned-film; it’s shaping up to be a body of work that could absolutely serve as a musical version of Stephen King’s seminal classic. Carve out some time for yourself to give the tunes below a spin!
First, we’ve got a sing-song number in the voice of Pennywise the Dancing Clown! Even though this track was only released 3 weeks ago, it’s racked up a whopping 2.6M views!
Official Synopsis: I love ‘It’ soo much I had to make a song about it, Pennywise is easily my favourite horror character, and I hate horror films! Hopefully, you think I sound like ‘It’. Don’t forget to sub me! This is a parody of Fall Out Boys ‘Last of The Real Ones‘
Next, Pennywise sports his rap skillz!
Official Synopsis: Hope you guys like the song! It’s an original so it may be a bit rubbish, but if you like it, it is available on iTunes and Spotify – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/pen…
Bill gathers the troops and rallies the Losers with a jam set to Smash Mouth’s Allstar; this one is definitely infectious!
Official Synopsis: I felt like the ‘Loser Club’ needed an official anthem haha! I got a new ‘It’ song coming this weekend! This time Georgie and Pennywise perform. I’m gonna make these songs available for free download real soon!
Last but not least, poor Georgie and Pennywise have a duet!
Official Synopsis: Thanks to KingHenryTheEtch for writing and singing this one with me, it wasn’t supposed to come across soo sinister lol. Stay tuned for more Pennywise this week (Hint Hint: rap battle). This is a parody of Havana by Cabello, thanks to SingKingKaraoke for the instrumental – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dd2nf…
About Aaron Fraser-Nash on YouTube: I was born to create! I love rapping, singing, producing, editing, designing, and trying to be funny. If you think I’m any good, please hit the subscribe button, I upload 2 songs every week, each one funnier than the last lol.
Official Synopsis: When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, neighborhood kids band together to square off against Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård), an evil clown whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
