This is a pretty pointless thread, but what the hell:

I think Roxy was going through his album collection when he came up with this one.

Nope. I have CD's. I did this from a 2 volume book set.

If we did away with pointless threads BWW would be a lonely place

Nice to see that even though it is pointless you still joined in. Well done.

"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

I'm not sure Dracula should count, given the full title was Dracula the Musical. Dracula was a very successful play.

So I know Ballroom was a flop financially but I've heard it spoken of very fondly by quiet a few people. Can anybody give me the scoop?

Sadly I never saw it, sidebyside. But I love the score. Still play it regularly.
Before his sad demise, I believe Marvin Hamlisch & the Bergmans were planning a reboot, with additional songs.

Yes. Pointless. A comment that doesn't make sense now that you complained and got all of my (and other people's) posts deleted.

It can get 3,000 replies. It's still pointless.

Maybe it would be fun if you started threads for flops with 2-, 3-, 4-, 5-, and 6-word titles, individually.

But the more I think about it, maybe you're right. There are two different kinds of pointless.

There's the fun, diversionary kind of "ooh!" pointless threads.

And then there are threads that are JUST. POINTLESS.

This, if you hadn't guessed, is one of the latter.
