Random Songs I Like #12 – The Glory of Love

For this series, I will be posting a new song every week from every imaginable style and genre.  The online criteria is that I need to like it. 

Random Songs I Like Week #12!  This song, sung by Bette Midler in the movie Beaches was written in 1936 and originally recorded by Benny Goodman and his Orchestra.  This song has always had a special place in my heart from the ugly-crying part of Beaches, where Bette has to bury her best friend (played by Barbara Hershey.).

Random Songs I Like #2 – How Did We Come to This?

For this series, I will be posting a new song every week from every imaginable style and genre.  The only criteria is that I need to like it!

This is the second installation of my year long weekly posting of songs as part of my #RandomSongsILike series.  This song has resonated with me for several years.  Taken from the Andrew Lippa off-Broadway musical “The Wild Party”, the song is sung in the aftermath of a party that makes the singer question everything.  When I hear this song, it makes me think of all of the division and anger plaguing the world.  With the attacks on the Capital building last week and the spread of lies and hate that are overtaking us, I wanted to offer this to anyone else who is hurting right now.
