Because I hate studying and because cahwyguy urged me to do this. ;)  
  1. Total amount of music files on your computer? Wow... I'd have to say at a rough guess, about 500 or so in iTunes. All of them musical theatre songs and most of them from cast recordings that I love.

  2. The last cd you bought was... "A New Brain" on Amazon (which I just love!). I also recently bought "Gunmetal Blues" (the Laguna Playhouse cast), "My Life With Albertine", and "Martin Guerre" on my last trip to the Virgin Megastore in NYC. :)

  3. What was the last song you listened to before reading this message? "You Should Be Loved" from Side Show - it's a constant in my rotation of favorites on my iPod, because I love the song and because Norm Lewis has the voice of a God. :)

  4. Write down five songs you often listen to or mean a lot to you.

    • "You Can Always Count On Me" from City of Angels - Not only is this one of my favorite musicals, but I love this song because it's hilarious and it's so me! I could've easily be Oolie/Donna through most of my life. :P "I'm one of a long line of girls who choose the wrong guy to be sweet on. The girl with a face that says welcome that men can wipe their feet on." :P

    • "I Want It All" from Baby - this song encompasses what most women these days feel. They want families, they want careers, and want to lead exciting lives. I like it because it's a fun song, but there's a lot of truth to it and I can really identify with some of the lyrics...

    • "Colors of Paradise" from Spitfire Grill - I don't know why, but I was really touched by this musical and at the end when the reprise of this song was sung, I was literally in tears...

    • "I'd Rather Be Sailing" from A New Brain - as stated earlier, Norm Lewis has the voice of a God! But this song is also such a touching love song (at least I interpret it as one) - I love it. *SIGH*

    • "This Is Not Over Yet" from Parade - this song is so uplifting and full of hope and the moment that Leo really realizes what a treasure his wife is. I love this whole musical, but this song is one of my favorites (and even nicer when Kevin sang it at the Mother's Day Concert a few years ago.) *SIGH*

  5. What new music are you really excited for in the coming year so far? New cast recordings, mostly. If I mention the one I'm really excited about, I'll get laughed out of my journal so I won't mention it. Let's just say that it I know it was recorded and I'm still waiting for word from Kevin about its release date. ;)
I'm also supposed to pass along the torch to five other people who I want to answer this meme and state why I did... But I couldn't just pick five people because I'm interested in all of your answers. :)

You Can Always Count On Me" from City of Angels

Great song. There's an equivalently good song from City of Angels. Randi Graff, on her album, combined the two of them into the Codependecy Duet: Nobody Does It Like Me/You Can Always Count on Me.

"I Want It All" from Baby. I used to use the song "I Chose Right" for my daughter's lullaby.

Thanks for the link, I love Randi Graff. :)

And I love "I Chose Right" too - the entire cast recording is absolutely lovely. :D I'd really love to see this performed somewhere!

That Randi Graff album is a great one—all Cy Coleman music.

As for Baby, we saw it many, many years ago (in fact, when my wife was pregnant with our little one) at the Morgan-Wixson Theatre in Santa Monica. Baby is one of those musicals, together with I Do, I Do, that I think are just the right size for the Pasadena Playhouse to revive.

I agree! I'd love to see "Baby" revived at Pasadena. :)

I totally agree with you about Norm Lewis. That man's voice is just...just...ahhh
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on March 6th, 2005 08:34 am (UTC)
Aside from Kevin, there's no one's voice I love more than Norm's! *SIGH*

Oh, Norm Lewis! His voice is just so heavenly. I'm so glad you love A New Brain so much! Reading this entry made me want to go and listen to all of my cast recordings. :) I think I'll answer this one in my journal later on!

I really love A New Brain - I can't stop listening to it! :D Thanks for answering the meme - I enjoyed seeing your answers. And I love Norm Lewis! Though it's funny and I have yet to actually see him on stage. :)
karen: tyleywakedistracted on March 8th, 2005 03:14 pm (UTC)
Oh, I can't wait until you get the chance. He is great. I was fortunate enough to see him in Side Show, The Wild Party, and Amour! Along with having that incredible voice, he is also incredibly sweet at the stage door. :) I love it when that happens.

Wow - you saw him in "Side Show?" I would've given anything to have seen his Jake! *SIGH*
