Oh I was made to live without you
But I’m never going to understand, never understand

I’m officially in love with this album. Except for Hanna Hunt. That song just won’t stick. Also, I seem to have a thing for the seemingly religious songs. Go figure. 


I’ll Be Here” as heard on Go Back Home (2013)

music/lyric Adam Gwon

performance Audra McDonald

One of the things I love most about Audra McDonald’s new album (my copy of which arrived today before it hits stores on the 21st) is a return on her part to promoting emerging music theater writers.  In this case, Adam Gwon.  She also includes numbers by Adam Guettel and Michael John LaChiusa, whose work she featured on her first albums when they were “emerging” as well.

So much love for this song, and of course, for Audra McDonald.

Unbelievers - Vampire Weekend

This is my favorite song so far on the new album. Along with actually understanding what is being said, I love the lyrics and think there’s some real truth behind them.

Betsy Wolfe sings “The Crime of the Century” in the 2005 Papermill Playhouse production of Ragtime.

there is a god.

No freedom ‘til we’re equal,
Damn right I support it

Appropriate song for the time.

Thin Line (feat. Buffalo Madonna) - Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

The Heist is a pretty solid album. I like the sound; it’s kind of like Astronautalis but with a bit more hip-hop mixed in.

Good stuff.

I Can Do Better Than That | Sherie Renee Scott


For What It’s Worth - Buffalo Springfield

I think it’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down

Reunion - Stars

Plus I always wanted you.
You liked to rock it in your car.


Marin Mazzie sings “Ring Them Bells” by Kander & Ebb. 

This is the best thing I’ve ever seen Marin do.

I love you, Marin.



I Can Do Better Than That | Betsy Wolfe


Amazing. I’m soooo excited. And this is one of my favorite songs from this show.


You & I - Local Natives

Local Natives just got real. Gorilla Manor was all sunshine and rainbows, but this album is something else. It’s like if the band experienced the harshness of the world we live in. The heartbreaks that tear you apart and leave you lost, the sudden deaths that leave you paralyzed with fear, the entire myriad of life’s problems that overwhelm you. However, even though the album does deal with darker subjects, there is still a glimmer of that optimism that was abundant in the first album. Somehow they saw the cold truths we live through but they still see the light, they are still keeping their heads up high and making music straight from the soul.

“You and I, we were always strong. It was enough to keep me on.”
