It's a phrase that's been ringing in my ears for the last few weeks because Santa came a little bit early for me last year by way of talented Australian author Gracie Macgregor, Gracie was clearing out her house preparatory to moving and she delivered a huge box of sheet music to my place.
What a treat! Fabulous, fabulous stuff!
Mainly hits of the 60s, 70s and 80s, with a very nice smattering of musicals like SOUTH PACIFIC and GUYS AND DOLLS and LES MISERABLES. The neighbors have started dreaming a dream - it involves me moving VERY far away!
I'm still making my way through this collection. So far favorites include the aforementioned LOVE STORY theme, the GODFATHER theme, and Ballade pour Adeline which I've never particularly liked to listen to but which turns out to be fun (and reasonably easy - always welcome!) to play.
There's also a smattering of popular classics which I'm looking forward to bashing out. And some rather groovy 80s numbers which I don't actually think I'm hip enough to play. There's a reason I've steered clear of playing I Got Rhythm. I don't!
So do you play an instrument? Do you have a favorite show tune? I grew up on musicals so I'd be hard put to think of just one!
Ah, "Memories light the corners of my life..." Yup. The Way We Were came in the box as well!
