OK, when I’m sad, I listen to show tunes. Fact. But I’m trying really really hard to avoid show tunes (as in 8 day’s time when I finish this, I’ll be doing the 30 day show tune song challenge …).
The song I’ve picked for this done doesn’t remind me of a sad time, it doesn’t particularly make me sad but I think that when it’s sung well, it can make an audience cry. It’s a simple melody with emotive lyrics. I defy you to listen to this and stay grinning like a loon. It’s lovely and heart-breaking.
