Tune in Tuesday (7): Soundtrack Edition

Tune in Tuesdays is hosted by Ginger at GReads to help spread the love of music!  I hope you enjoy and perhaps it will take you back.

Ginger picked the month of October to have the theme of soundtracks, which I just HAVE to participate in. Since I missed last week because I was supposed to have surgery, I have a BUNCH of stuff to share with you, dear followers!

Music is a HUGE part of whom I am and I swear that I must have loved it in the womb or at least came out head first with the soul intent of devouring music the way I devour books. At one time, I wanted to be on Broadway and I have been involved in school & community musical theater productions. Today I would like to share some pieces from the shows I have taken part. In  all but Godspell I was in the chorus with various roles at different points in the musicals (ie. servant #2). However, for Godspell I was behind the scenes and was prop mistress which was very fun even though I wasn't singing or dancing.

Lil' Abner - Jubilation T. Cornpone

Kiss Me Kate - We Open in Venice

Oklahoma - Title song reprise

The Sound of Music - the Lonely Goatherd (I dare you to watch & not smile)

Bye, Bye Birdie - Telephone Hour

Godspell - Day by Day

Do you have any musicals that you grew up watching or listening?


  1. I love musicals! My favorites are Gigi and My Fair Lady. I really like Bye Bye Birdie too- great pick!

  2. OHHHH klahoma where the wind comes rushing down the planes!! Of course I have seen this! I actually loved the Godspell video tho! Hope your feeling well..I miss you =o)

  3. I love all the songs you've chosen. Talk about bringing me back to my childhood. Although I'm fairly young, I grew up on musicals and I love it when others love them too.

  4. Oh how I love musicals. I really love Calamity Jane, I heart Doris Day. And Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. There are so many good ones, including those you chose.

  5. I loooooove musicals and Broadway shows! The Sound of Music has a special place in my heart. It was my grandmother's favorite and it always reminds me of her. =)

  6. This is my first time hearing these songs actually...I know, terrible! Great picks!
