Pretty straightforward question. I'm doing Curtains in the next couple of months, so I've been listening to it regularly. I love the "In the Same Boat" thing running through the show. They're all pretty charming in their own ways, I was just wondering which ones everyone prefers.
Oh, and the "completed" one isn't included because, duh, everyone would vote for it.

My vote goes to No. 2. It's brief, it's charming, and has the best melody of the three, IMO. But all of them are good.
Vote and discuss! :D

I really love NO. 1 just because it's catchy to sing. My school's doing Curtains right now, and it's funny you posted this because the cast just learned the full number "In the Same Boat" today. When it all came together, and we hit that last chord, it felt so great. :mrgreen:

I probably like the "complete" version the most. I'm a sucker for a good old song in counterpoint.

It's an awesome song it all it's intended silliness. I prefer the first version, the one with praying that whales aren't allowed to eat meat on friday :D

The complete version is best, of course.
