These are the songs I picked between 26 December 2014 and 1 January 2015. I’ll talk about them next time.
Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive – Johnny Mercer
My Red-Letter Day – Bob Walton, Jim Walton, Karen Ziemba … I considered briefly giving it to Sigourney Weaver but decided against it. Yes, you didn’t misread, Sigourney Weaver, the actress; I worked with her a few years back.
Overture To “Pretty Lady”/With Plenty Of Money And You – Kate Levering (Dance) and Men …The curtain went up, and musical number after musical number, I could hear the man sitting next to me, gasping in delight when he recognised each one of the songs.
Concierto de Aranjuez for Guitar and Orchestra: II. Adagio – Pepe Romero, Barry Davis, Academy of St. Martin In the Fields & Sir Neville Marriner
Praeludium and Allegro in the Style of Pugnani – Henryk Szeryng & Charles Reiner
El Año Víejo – Tony Camargo … My parents didn’t throw too many parties, but when they did they were epic.
Boom Ditty Boom – “70, Girls, 70” 1991 Original London Cast
