After my friend mentioned that she watched Les Miserables this weekend, I have had songs from that glorious play in my head all day long. It reminded me how much I love showtunes. I know how lame the word showtunes sounds, but I guess that’s just what we call them. I grew up listening to “The Best of Andrew Lloyd Webber.” All my other siblings heard the same music, but for me it just stuck. I loved everything about Broadway musicals. Ever since then, those songs tear at my heart strings. I can feel every emotion in every song and also feel such a sense of nostalgia for my childhood.
Les Miserables – I Dreamed A Dream
Annie – Maybe
Rent – One Song Glory
Newsies – Seize The Day
