Musical Moments – We’ll Meet Again – Vera Lynn

06EAF403-FBD7-486C-AD88-9CF092D1CFFC

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.

 

Billie Eilish – No Time To Die

Isn’t it nice to wake up to something exclusive from the film world? Well, I hope it’s not just me who feels that way. Here we have Billie Eilish and the next Bond theme “No Time To Die”.

I like the sound of this as it fits with what we expect from a good Bond theme and ballad!

What do you think?

Musical Moments – Shallow (A Star Is Born) at the Oscars!

Ok, so I kinda wanted to let everything settle with this as people were going crazy saying Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper were having an affair. So I would like to claim that it is just a truly outstanding performance, although I don’t imagine I would be too happy with it if I was Bradley Cooper’s girlfriend!

Highly tense and a truly outstanding version of the song. Quite possibly the best moment at the Oscars! It is so very hot . . .

Musical Moments: Evita – Don’t Cry For Me Argentina

Tomorrow I am going to see Evita for the third time and it really is one of my favourite shows. So many fantastic ballads and moments in what can only be described as a truly depressing evening at the theatre. But I mean that in truly the best way possible as it is haunting and heartbreaking in a well amazing way!

Here is Madelena Alberto (who is in current UK tour) singing Don’t Cry For Me Argentina

Musical Moments – Dirty Dancing (Part 2)

I am heading to the Theatre tonight to see Dirty Dancing on stage. I had never really fancied it in all honesty, but I am eventually going to see what it is like. If I enjoy it, always difficult when they are based on a pretty iconic film and that is certainly the case with this one.

I have already done a post in the past with Time of My Life, so thought I would go for She’s Like the Wind for today’s musical moment!

I haven’t listened to anything from the show so that will be a slight surprise.

Musical Moments – Moulin Rouge!

I have felt inspired to have a musical moment today as I am putting together a post on Jim Broadbent as my excitement is growing to head to see him as Scrooge in A Christmas Carol on 16th December (which will be my last Theatre show of 2015). So I have decided to celebrate two of his fantastic musical moments in Moulin Rouge!

The Show Must Go On – a rather serious moment which sums up exactly what they all must do!
