I don’t like going to musicals, but once there I’m hooked.
I like reality and musicals interrupt reality by breaking into a song. That doesn’t happen in real life or does it?
Have you ever felt so good you just want to sing. I have a friend who whistles a lot. What is in his head that triggers a melody? It’s got to be something good. Music brings out our emotions. Sometimes we live a musical without really knowing it.
Many years ago at work a coworker was having a difficult time explaining something to me. “It’s too hard to put into words.”
“Than can you express it in music,” I said joking.
He smiled and walked away.
Later he approached me and started singing to the tune of There’s Nothing Like a Dame from South Pacific.
“Don’t you know I hate my boss,
More than anything in the world.
Don’t you know I hate my boss
And makes me want to hurl.”
What can’t be expressed in words, because the true emotion is lacking, can be expressed in song.
