Kamila Toska. Quite fond of indie music, sarcastic humor, romantic comedies, theatre, books, college, and things considered vintage. Adores Tina Fey, Ewan McGregor, and real-life friends. In a New York City state-of-mind.
We set the wrong course And headed due north That’s where we went wrong
We were young and learning Steady hearts hate turning That’s where we went wrong
This song rocks. I haven’t been paying attention to Regina lately, so I first heard this song when her familiar voice drew me to the series my parents are currently watching on Netflix, Orange is the New Black.
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.

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.
