Mid Week Music

So if anyone ever finds my iPod, there's a high chance they'd be rather confused by my music selection. After all, there is a rather unusual mix on there. A fair portion of that selection is Broadway Cast recordings given that I love Musical Theatre.

Without further ado, here's four of the musical theatre songs I've been listening to lately. This is only a small selection, there are countless more, but we'd be here all day if I shared everything.

1.  My Eyes Adored You from Jersey Boys. Personally I think this version is better than the original. Maybe it's the placing of it on stage, during the scene where Frankie & Mary Delgado split, but it is beautiful on the CD & even more so live.

2. I've Never Been To Me from Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Again this is beautiful live as it is performed by one of the Divas above the stage & then reinterpreted on stage by one of the drag queens. It's just stunning to watch & this rendition by Chrissy O'Neil is stunning.

3. Step In Time from Mary Poppins. This version is quite different to the film version of the song & is definitely a lot more entertaining to watch. It's one of those numbers that are just so catchy & guaranteed to leave you wanting to pick up tap-dancing. 

4. Science Fiction from Rocky Horror. There's something about this song, I'm not sure what it is but I love it. When I saw the stage show it was sung by a cast member dressed as a cinema usher from another era. It was one of my favourite moments in the show.

  1. Step In Time - There is no other song that will get me motivated and energised coming from musical theatre! This song is definitely a favourite of mine too!
