[Forward-dated to sometime around midnight on Musical Flood Day 1. It's been a long and humiliating day for Malcolm Tucker and he's cranky, and hanging out up on deck alone. Or so he thinks. And before long, a voice rises in song...]
I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When polls were high and votes were winning
I dreamed Labour would never die
I dreamed the press would be forgiving

Then I was young and unafraid
And spin was made and used and wasted
There was no hush money to be paid
All fucking cunts, all foes lambasted

But the nutters come at night
With their policy soft as thunder
As they tear the party apart
All initiatives turn to shame

I spun a summer by his side
I filled his days with endless swearing
He took my wisdom in his stride
And he was gone when the election came

And still I dream they'll come to me
And we will win the votes together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And coalitions we cannot weather

I had a dream the campaign would be
So different from this shit I'm living
So different now from what it seemed
Now the Barge has killed the dream I dreamed...
[Anyone up on deck or in the gardens or whatever? You totally heard him, whether he knows it or not. Get 'im.]

[Up on deck, Adam pauses, looks at Malcolm and then busts out laughing. YOU'RE NOT AS ALONE AS YOU THINK, BUDDY.]

[Yeah, he's not leaving. Instead, Adam walks up to Malcolm, smirk on his face.]

What the hell was that about? Decided to serenade us with horrible show tunes?

It wasn't exactly Pop Idol...more like Soul Train.

I've been to a few, but not a big fan. [Frown still.] Look, there's nothing wrong with it!

[Sorry Malc, it's Adam's turn to be hit by the musical flood. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJhWQp6Najs)]

Ooooh I, I love the nightlife
I got to boogie
On the disco 'round, oh yea
Oh, I love the night life
I got to boogie on the disco 'round, oh yea

Please don't talk about floods tonight
Please don't talk about goddamn floods
Please don't talk about me or you
And all the trouble we've been through
Ah, please don't talk about all of the plans
We had for hiding and avoiding this chance
I want to go where the people dance
I want some action
I want to live
Action, I got so much to give
I want to give it
I want to get some too

Ooooh I, I love the nightlife
I got to boogie
On the disco 'round, oh yea
Oh, I love the night life
I got to boogie on the disco 'round, oh yea

Please don't talk about floods tonight
All your cursing won't make it right
Floods and ports just bring me down
When you've got judgement all over town
You can hate them all and when you're through
Maybe that'll make, huh, something new
I got to go where the people dance
I want some action
I want to live

Action
I got so much to give
I want to give it
I want to get some too

Oh I, I love the nightlife
I got to boogie
On the disco 'round, oh yeah
Oh, I love the night life
I got to boogie on the disco 'round, oh yeah

Oh, I love the night life
I got to boogie
On the disco 'round, oh yeah
Oh, I love the night life
I got to boogie
On the disco 'round, oh yeah
Oh, I love the night life
I got to boogie
On the disco 'round, oh yeah.

[Pause. Cue the horrorstruck look.]

[ Claire ventured up toward the deck a bit too late to hear all their wonderful singing, but she heard the laughter and drifted toward it, only to find her immortal BFFFL and Inmate. Smiling with folded arms, she asked, ]

What'd I miss?

[And Adam's still glaring.]

And we've got goddamn Ethel Merman over here.

[She raises a brow, unsure of who Ethel Merman is, but not asking.]

Some flood, huh?

[Claire winks, teasing,] What if I start dancing, will you laugh then too?
