One Singular Sensation

My wife will tell you that I have many guilty pleasures on my iPod and music rack. There is the all too prominent Steely Dan Greatest Hits. Of course there was that musical interlude I took into country music that had me buying every honky-tonk collection that existed (I still have the song "Take a Tater and Wait" by Little Jimmy Dickens imprinted in my grey matter). And everybody needs a little Abba and Genesis now and again. The truly dirty little secret is in the rack, tucked way down at the bottom in the very select show tunes section. There was a time when I lived in New York and Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber was busy keeping Benadette Peters on the stage. So, yes, I can sing at least a few verses from Song and Dance and Sunday in the Park With George. Certainly, no Easter season can come without having a good chunk of Jesus Christ Superstar running through my head and the Three Penny Opera (even before Raul Julia and Sting made it cool) is still one of my favorites. I draw the line at dancing though…at least in public.  | Jim Dunn
