I don't know that one, but safe to say, I won't venture to find out!

@ASTRAEA - Yes, Man of La Mancha is another exception for me. I especially like I Don Quixote, as well as The Impossible Dream and Little Bird Little Bird.

 

Man of La Mancha and Cats are my two favorites from the musicals genre. There were musical tours that came through here many years ago, so I was able to see both of them. 

 

As you mentioned in your earlier post, people naturally gravitate to the music they like, and avoid what they do not. There are some modern tunes that I hear while out shopping that I have come to enjoy, and others that I hope never to hear again!

I had forgotten Tiptoe.  You are probably right about that one but Blinded by the Light?   Hmmmmm

 

Havd you forgotten They're Coming to take you away?

Tiptoe deserves to be buried and forgotten! I believe it's been retired, and I hope no one ever tries to revive it!

 

I do remember They're Coming to Take Me Away (ha ha). It was retired, with good reason, for being politically incorrect, of course.

 

The songs that usually tire me are show tunes. I'm not a big fan of either film or Broadway musicals to begin with, so I don't care for most of the music that goes along with them. There are a few exceptions (Memory from Cats is one), but they can canister most of them for my part!

 

On the other hand, I would never consider retiring a Beatles song, or songs like Imagine by John Lennon. In fact, I think Imagine is as appropriate for today's world as it was when it was written.

I'm going to shut down my PC. It's infected with the most stupid song I've ever heard next to Tiptoe through the Tulips (Tiny Tim).  It needs a file purge and rest.................

 

BTW: Blinded by the Light needs to be purged too. Ok, I'm going to now listen the The Planets, by Holst.


What.  No kudos?
