Before the critics commence, as John sang once upon a time “Give Peace A Chance.” It’s hard to argue with these ten selections; however, we all have our favorites. Having worked in NYC for four years in the 80’s, I was able to see some of these performed live. For any curtain call, here goes…..
Number 10……”Do Re Mi” from The Sound of Music
Number 9……”Somewhere” from West Side Story
Number 8…..”Don’t Cry For Me Argentina” from Evita
Number 7…..”76 Trombones” from The Music Man
Number 6…..”Aquarius” from Hair
Number 5….”Tomorrow” from Annie
Number 4…..”Memory” from CATS
Number 3…..”Oh, What A Beautiful Morning” from Oklahoma
Number 2….”The Music of the Night” from The Phantom of the Opera
And the best of them all….
Number 1….”Rag Doll” from Jersey Boys
There are so many great songs to choose from, it just becomes a matter of personal preference. I enjoyed AIDA tremendously along with the music of Elton John, but attempting to extract one song from the play was difficult. Tell me who I left out that should have been in there and which hit you would replace it with. I’ll be the first to admit the oversight!
