Week 20

These are the songs I picked between 07 and 13 November 2014. I’ll talk about them next time.

Loving You – Judy Kuhn & Ryan Silverman … I believe Sondheim, who has said he didn’t fall in love until he was 60, understood Fosca. At the end, he allows her to briefly see what love really is before she dies.

Haben Sie Gehört Das Deutsche Band? – Brad Oscar

I Wanna Be a ProducerMatthew Broderick, Ensemble

Our Love Is Here To Stay – Michael Feinstein … Ira poignantly penned the lyrics after George’s death, making it perhaps the ultimate song about fraternal love. 

Journey On – Peter Friedman, Mark Jacoby, Marin Mazzie … Father is touched by the sight of people arriving to the new country and salutes their courage, “You’re a brave man whoever you are; coming so far, expecting so much”

What A Game – Mark Jacoby, Alex Strange

The Coffee Song – Frank Sinatra
