Musical Moments – We’ll Meet Again – Vera Lynn

We’ll Meet Again is a song that was first around in World War II and was sung to the troops by Vera Lynn before they left England to fight. The lyrics are truly poignant and powerful, last night The Queen addressed the nation and finished by saying we will meet again and other references to the war were within the speech. So since then I have been thinking about this song especially considering it reminds me of my Nanna who was evacuated during WWII so much so we had it as the final song at her funeral.

 

Musical Moments – Avenue Q (For Now)

I know that Musical Moments is usually a Monday feature but considering the current world pandemic due to the Coronavirus I felt as though we need more Musical Moments!

I’ve had this song in my head most of the week “For Now” as I think thats important to remember that this pandemic is only for now and we will see better days! Also if you want more Avenue Q I really recommend watching other songs from the show.

The best thing about seeing it on stage is that they often change the final “For Now” to someone who is currently relevant in the country your in!

Musical Moments – Neil Diamond (Washing Hands)

Music legend Neil Diamond has had a slight lyric change to his incredible song Sweet Caroline and another little reminder to people about washing hands and not reaching out to touch anyone! Great to see the legend looking so well it has to be said.

Musical Moments – Joker (Rock & Roll Part 2)

During the film I have to say the moment that music hit and he danced down the steps it was utterly outstanding. Well someone on YouTube has created a whole music video to the song and I have to say it is the perfect choice for this weeks Musical Moment! Joaquin Phoenix is unreal in the leading role (check out my review here) giving a truly haunting performance.

Musical Moments – Les Mis (One Day More)

I am going to see Les Miserables for the second time at the Theatre tonight having seen it in the West End a few years back. I am really looking forward to it as the UK Tour is the new production and will be starting in the West End later this year after the theatre has been refurbished.

One Day More is one of the most incredible songs so I thought for todays musical moment it would be the version from the 10th anniversary concert show!
