Playlist for Sunday, February 21, 2016: Buck Up, Bub!

Alone. Homesick. Depressed. Cranky.  A bit rough 'round the edges. Sleazy horns, heartfelt harmonicas, dark, dank, and just plain rotten....Broadway can be that way sometimes. Hey, it's all about the Human Condition, right? An echo of all we go thru, albeit with tap shoes. And what else is Februarararay good for? Certainly not spelling. Once you get passed Valentines Day (or perhaps you CAN'T get passed Valentines Day), what else is there? If you can't get depressed in this month...plus PLUS it's frickin' Leap Year, so we must sulk thru an extra day!? 

But Broadway's therapeutic. Maybe listening to someone else's musical gloom is just what we need to help us pick up that baton again, pretend we have a waist, and parade down Long Pond Rd.  So we'll hear some noir (City Of Angels), some lonesome "brothers" (Seven Brides), some dirty backstabbing columnists (Sweet Smell Of Success) and "Bounce" back! The count to April 1st is now less than 45 days, so nurse those mood swings and buck up.  This is Broadway, bub!
