Best Song Oscar – Clips of Every Winner

Here’s a binge list that I think many of you will love. I went, year by year, and found clips of every Oscar-winning Best Song, from 1934 to the present. It’s one hell of a list, full of great songs an loads of terrific performances. Wherever I could, I tried to find clips from the actual films. Only a few eluded me, so I had to stray outside that format. I enjoyed putting it together for you. In honor of this year’s nominees, let’s take a trip down memory lane.

2017 Tony Award Season Album Review

Broadway Records has done it again. They have given us a treat of album, this time one that celebrates the 2016-2017 Broadway Season. What a terrific idea to create a compilation of the best-of-the-best, one song from almost every musical that opened on Broadway leading up to this year’s Tony Awards. It’s an archive of a year’s worth of Broadway excitement for fans to look back at a period of musical theatre. It makes one wonder why someone hasn’t done this sooner. Make no mistake, the 2017 Tony Award Season album will be a welcome addition to your musical theatre library.

Processing the Tony Nominations (And the Oversights)

It was a crowded spring, jam-packed in fact. The Tony nominations were sure to overlook some of our favorites, simply for the sheer abundance of new plays and musicals that opened on Broadway this season. It was simply a brutal game of “Survival of the Fittest”, with musicals that would have found buoyancy (and some nominations) in a typical season, being pulled under with so many innovatively new productions and starry revivals riding the current. Have I thoroughly exhausted the “Sink or Swim” metaphors yet?
