Just in case anyone hasn’t noticed, I’m in a mood for musicals and Christmas is taking way too long to get here this year. In the meantime, a few of my favorite less well known songs from Broadway.
Merrily We Roll Along – Not A Day Goes By (No one does angst as well as Sondheim)
Into The Woods – Agony (The Princes Less than Charming moaning about wanting what they can’t have.)
Kismet – And This Is My Beloved (Borodin wrote some darn good melodies and Robert Wright and George Forrest stole them in an entertaining fashion).
Little Me – A Real Live Girl (Sid Caesar in multiple parts but here sung by Mr. Mellow)
Sweeney Todd – A Little Priest (Fine Dining for the murderously inclined)
