Hello and howdy, and let's give a big salute to the fellow who coined the phrase, "I have a dream..."
As always, this love fest is the product of my friends, FAE (never absent in my heart, always in my prayers, and just one heck of a gal) and Stephen T. McCarthy (yep, that's the guy). I'm aonce a month participant on the 15th, and returning on the 21st with results of YOUR voting, so let's get this show on the road.
Bands aren't the only source of great of great songs and you just have to look at the theater to find a big, steaming mess o' wonderful classics. Some of the most famous vocalists of the past decades have taken advantage of the availability of this wellspring of tune-age.
I have a dream of a battle...of musicals...and musicians...and YouTube...all coming together with the common theme: dreams...
I HAVE DREAMED/THE KING AND I
PEABO BRYSON & LEA SALONGA
WHEN I FIRST SAW YOU (THERE'S MY DREAM)/DREAMGIRLS
JAMIE FOX & BEYONCE
I DREAMED A DREAM/LES MISERABLES
Now that I look back on those, this looks a little highbrow, ha ha. It's a new year, why not be a little risky?
Your turn: which song do you like best? Do you like musicals? How about the whole concept of acting meets singing? And are you glad or sad that I didn't use Susan Boyle for "I Have a Dream" (her famous "Britain's Got Talent" performance).
Vote and I'll see you back here on the 21st!
