It's only fair...
But Victoria is an example of a smart blog marketer, continuing to keep track of what I'm writing and looking for opportunities to present something relevant to me. And she totally found one!
She wrote me the following note yesterday:
Thanks for posting about the Tony Awards! Its great that you posted how you honestly felt about the Awards and their winners! I was wondering if there is the possibility to post up some song clips from Harry's latest album to give your readers the opportunity to hear for themselves. Thanks for your time and enjoy the clips once again!
OK, I will totally bite. I said Harry seemed a little uncomfortable, and yes, I will post clips from his latest album, Harry on Broadway, Act 1, so y'all can hear for yourselves.
The first CD of the 2-CD set features songs from The Pajama Game, and here are some clips:
A New Town is a Blue Town
The second CD features songs from Connick Jr's Broadway composing debut, Thou Shalt Not:
I Like Love More
The Other Hours
They are quite short clips, but I'd have to say I'm far more intrigued by Thou Shalt Not. There's a kind of languid, retro feeling to both clips.
So, anyone out there a Harry fan who already has the album? If so, what do you think?
Anyway, "Pajama Game." Full disclosure: I haven't seen the movie or the musical. But for unrelated reasons, I have the soundtrack CD to the Doris Day movie, which I hadn't listened to (it was a gift). For kicks, I listened to one, then the other.
I love Doris Day. I love Doris Day musicals. *shudder* This one ... not good. I listened to the same songs from Harry's CD, and everything is much improved. This cast has better singers, the production values are better, and as a result, it just sounds crisper and more enjoyable.
Oh, and Harry's in fine voice. :)
