These are the songs I picked between 25 July and 31 July 2014. I’ll talk about them in my next instalment.
El Padre Antonio y Su Monaguillo Andrés * – Rubén Blades
It’s A Lovely Day Today – Galina Talva, Russell Nype and The Chorus
Adios Hermanos – Marc Anthony, Michelle Rios, Natascia Diaz, Nestor Sanchez, Renoly Santiago, Rubén Blades & Sophia Salguero – … We came out during intermission saying, “Now, this isn’t so bad. Why people hate it?” The girl who sold us the show window card agreed with us. But then we went in to see Act II; it wasn’t so good; actually it was very bad.
Almost Like Being In Love * – Frank Sinatra – … In a perfect manner, the song captures the state of elation and happiness that now and then we experience for no particular reason.
Zing! Went The Strings Of My Heart – Judy Garland
Don’t Rain On My Parade – Judy Garland & Liza Minnelli – … Judy reportedly turned to her companion and said: “Fuck Liza, we’ll make money with this one,” or something along those lines.
Agnus Dei * – Dale Warland Singers
* Top 10 Contender
