    Just as a fun topic to get started:

     

    Who are your five favorite Broadway composers?

     

    For each composer, what score of theirs do you like the most?

     

    From each composer’s score, what song is the best?

     

    Example:

     

    I like Sondheim. I like Sondheim’s “Sweeney Todd.” That song A Little Priest is funnizor laxor lololololol!

     

    Just like that. Only less stupid.

    This is tough, so I’ll only do the ones I’m currently listening to most right now:

    1) Sondheim – A Little Night Music – “Every Day a Little Death”

    2) Sondheim – Follies – “Losing My Mind”

    3) Kander / Ebb – Chicago – “When You’re Good to Mama”

    4) David Yazbek – Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown – “On the Verge”

    5) Elton John / Tim Rice – Aida – “Elaborate Lives” 

    These choices probably seem… unsophisticated but they on the top of my list at the moment!

    I never heard this song Sondheim – Follies – “Losing My Mind”. It’s so nice.

    Losing My Mind is one of the most performed Sondheim songs. As many different artists have sung or played it as there have been for Send in the Clowns.

    I like Sondheim.
    I like Sondheim’s “Company”
    The songs “Being Alive”/”Marry Me A Little” have become my philosophy of life.
