Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Mr. Mushnik: No loitering!
Ronette: Man, I wasn't loitering! Were you, Crystal? 
Crystal: Not me, Ronette! Were you, Chiffon? 
Mr. Mushnik: You oughta be in school! 
Chiffon: Yeah, well, we're on a split shift. 
Ronette: Yeah! We went to school 
til fifth grade, then we split! 
Mr. Mushnik: So! How do you intend to better yourselves? 
Crystal: Better ourselves? You heard what he said? 
Better ourselves! Mister, when you're 
from Skid Row, ain't no such thing! 

Frank Oz's Little Shop of Horrors was released 
on this exact day 30 years ago!
(Something tells me we won't be talking about the
upcoming remake 30 years from now, but we'll see.)
What's your favorite song from the musical? 
(Mine is "Somewhere That's Green.")

Skid Row for the win! Runner up would be Finale Ultimo from the directors cut or Suddenly Seymour.

There will be no other Audrey but Ellen Greene.

no remake necessary . . . some things should not be touched and this is one, it was perfect!

Yeah, probably Skid Row. Although Somewhere That's Green would be a close runner-up, although I think a lot of that has to do with Greene's performance of the song than the song itself.
