The Sunday Giveaway: 2 Tickets to see AMERICAN IDIOT on Broadway.

Ok, so I’m driving home to see a production of Urinetown at my high school alma mater this weekend, and a song pops on the top 40 radio station I was listening to.

The song was “Good Riddance [Time of Your Life]” by Green Day.

For a second, I thought, “Huh, there’s an American Idiot song playing on the radio.

And, of course, that’s not what the Station Manager thought when he picked the song for the playlist.

But who cares . . . to have a song that is featured in a major Broadway musical featured prominently on a pop music station is pretty awesome, don’t you think?

And if you haven’t seen the major Broadway musical also known as American Idiot, then put on your black mascara and buy some skinny jeans beause this may be your chance.

This week we’re giving away 2 tickets to see American Idiot on the Broadway!

Want to win?  Here’s how . . .

Enter a comment below.

But this week, instead of commenting “Pick Me!  Pick me!” . . . I want you to tell me what musical theater song you think should be heard on the radio but wasn’t.  Make sense?  There was a time when musical theater tunes crossed over . . . not so much anymore.  In fact the flow has reversed.  So what song do you think was good enough to make it on the pop charts . . . but didn’t.

Comment away!  And good luck!  (Email subscribers, click hereto reach the comment section so you can enter.)

Winner announced this Saturday at 11 AM!

    I think 10 little indians from bloody bloody andrew jackson should be on the radio!!!

  • Justin says:

    Seasons of love, RENT

  • Jillian says:

    I think “96,000” from In the Heights would sound great on the radio because it is the perfect mix of current music and that classic Broadway sound 🙂

  • I love all of the suggestions above, but I think if you jazzed up the arrangement a little bit, “Once Upon a Time” from “Brooklyn” could be a great pop/adult contemporary song.

  • Linda says:

    I think “Bitch of Living” from Spring Awakening could have done well on the radio. It has lyrics that young adults (and older adults as well) can relate to and is very catchy.

  • Kevin Keating says:

    That’s a tough one. They don’t really write songs for shows like they used to (I don’t mean they’re worse, just that the role they play in the musical has changed for the most part). Also, with the success of Glee these days, we actually once again have some opportunities for Bway tunes to get some serious pop exposure, but I’m not sure what out of the current crop of new shows would really hold its own with the Britneys and Madonnas of the world that they haven’t already gone with.
    That said, does “The Music Still Plays On” from A New Brain count for my entry?

  • This comment wall wasn’t working for me earlier this morning so I tweeted in the meantime. My Tweet–> @StefanieRennert: Sunday Giveaway via @kendavenport 2 Tix 2 see AMERICAN IDIOT on Broadway http://bit.ly/gCopvO / My answer: http://bit.ly/SpringAwakeningBOL (21 minutes ago)

  • Diane says:

    There are so many, but the one that always makes me think it could have been one of those great Top 40 Pop Duets is “As Long as You’re Mine” from Wicked. I think I’ve worn a groove into my Wicked CD listening to it over & over again.

  • Susan says:

    My Junk from Spring Awakening

  • While not from a Broadway musical, I think “The Ballad Of Sarah Berry” from Ryan Scott Oliver’s 35mm is such a rocking, fantastic musical theatre song, which would be mad to hear on the radio.
    Also considering the writers pedigree and the sound of the song I’m surprised Spider-Man hasn’t flogged ‘The Boy Falls From The Sky’ to the radio market. Other thoughts of that show aside, it could only add to their marketing strategy to have that song out there, I think it’s radio friendly, capturing an essence of U2, whilst also the essence of Spider-Man, and the moody/angsty sounds of Reeve Carney’s voice. When they first performed that song for the public was the first time I actually thought that maybe the whole Spider-Man idea wasn’t ridiculous, maybe this could work. So it kind of surprised me that they didn’t do an Andrew Lloyd Webber and utilise selling/having the music played on radio before the show came to town.

  • Lisa Bodnar says:

    I definitely agree with Jillian! “96,000” would sound amazing on the radio. Also, I think that the title song “In The Heights” would be a great song if they were to remix it a little.

  • Noah Befeler says:

    One Day More from Les Misérables. Very few times in musical theatre have I sat in my seat and and felt chills at the end of the first act. Les Mis was one of those times. The entire cast singing different things at diferent times gives the audience a really GREAT sense of the different stories in the show! One Day More from Les Mis all the way! 🙂

  • Andy L. says:

    “Lie to Me” from WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN

  • Bethynyc says:

    I’ll agree with Justin for “Seasons of Love” from RENT.

  • “Totally Fucked” from Spring Awakenings. Because, on all points:)

  • Jack says:

    “Superboy and the Invisible Girl” from Next to Normal if Diana’s part was cut out. It is very easy for the common ear to listen to and very relatable for all audiences. Everyone has someone that other people think is better than they are. Also, it has a small band, which is much more similar to what non-theatre fans are used to hearing that a full orchestra.

  • Defying Gravity from Wicked

  • Marie says:

    Defying Gravity from Wicked. Plus I have to agree with the others above – Seasons of Love from Rent and B!tch of Living would be fun too.

  • John says:

    The Next Ten Minutes from Last Five Years

  • Marie says:

    LOL – Craig, Same song at the exact same time… kinda freaky!

  • Troyheard says:

    “The Origin of Love” from Hedwig!

  • Jeanie Balch says:

    How about The Saddest Song from Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson? Not only does it rock out, but it has the most amusing and relevant lyric, “and you see being president’s hard.”

  • Kendra says:

    “I’m Alive” from Next to Normal.
    It works perfectly out of context and I think would have done very well had it crossed over.

  • Mark says:

    Completely out of context but for the right singer, “I Miss the Mountains” is a perfect song for a country artiste.

  • Sol says:

    Thought of the very dame song.

  • Katie O'Brien says:

    Oh, man this is tough! There are so many musicals I love <3 I have to say "I Am The One" from Next To Normal, though. I didn't know the play when I first heard that song, and yet I connected with it and loved it. It would work on the radio for that reason (unlike something that you'd need to know the show for to understand).

  • TonyinNYC says:

    I always thought “For Good” from Wicked would make a great Country song.

  • Claire says:

    I was going to suggest “One Night in Bangkok” from Chess when I remembered it was actually played on the radio. I think “Nobody’s Side” from Chess would be good as well. Could they play “The Bitch of Living” from Spring Awakening without having to censor it? That would be perfect. If not that, I agree with the person who suggested “I’m Alive” from Next to Normal.

  • Lori Mooney says:

    If I Told You from The Wedding Singer.

  • Marty Strenczewilk says:

    I’ll do you one better Ken, and give you three
    1. Defying gravity has the star power behind it (two incredible voices, that also happen to be two beautiful women- perfect for pop culture) and the amazing build from the bridge onward that really catches you.
    2. Touch Me from Spring Awakening has the quintessential Duncan Sheik music that is already radio proven (see barely breathing) and a great hook
    3. Rent has the advantage of being the title of the show, has a real strong driving beat, and is very very catchy.

  • NineDaves says:

    Hedwig’s “Wicked Little Town” would work perfectly on radio – especially if recorded by someone like Radiohead.

  • I think 96,000 from In The Heights would be a great radio song. It’s current and pop enough to cross over to radio yet represents a musical that is a perfect example of what a musical should be.

  • NineDaves says:

    with that being said, did you by any change hear Wicked’s “Popular” sampled in upcoming rapper Huey Mack’s song of the same name?


  • Sandy Utsch says:

    Beautiful City from the 2001(?) Godspell tour!!

  • Emily Michelle says:

    If I Told You from the Wedding Singer is a great song. It’s very similar to all of those pop love songs. I can almost hear it as a popified Disney song from the 90’s

  • Mozz says:

    I have to agree with all the 96,000 voters. I expected that soundtrack to spawn a couple of radio friendly hits, and was surprised when it didn’t.

  • jessica says:

    definitely ‘superboy and the invisible girl’ from next to normal. i think it would resonate with a ton of people. it was always a song that got the audience to really react to. imagine the impact it would have on radio listeners.

  • Stephanie says:

    Light from Next to Normal. It shows a family over coming struggle and showing that life can go on even if it isn’t the way you planned. So many times people hide what they are going through because it isn’t seen as socially acceptable and this song shines a different light on that.

  • Yosi Merves says:

    Rent and In The Heights both have songs that should be played on the radio. I would like to add “Great Big Stuff” from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

  • Kevin says:

    I also have several but I am narrowing it to a couple lesser known, less mainstream. “We Gotta Go” from The Life and “Freak” from Boy George’s Taboo. If you have not heard Freak, I highly recommend going and finding it. It is awesome!

  • Sarah Packard says:

    I see a few other people have cited ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’ songs, but don’t think anyone’s said “Wig In A Box,” which is such a great classic rock-out-to-and-singalong song (it even explicitly has a singalong chorus part!) and I think would work excellently on the radio (even out of context). So would “Tear Me Down,” come to think of it! I gotta also agree with all the commenters on “96,000,” “I’m Alive,” “Bitch of Living,” and “Boy Falls From The Sky” (which is soo U2!!) too.

  • Ellen says:

    Even in the early ’70s Broadway music was getting no respect from radio, especially Top 40 radio. I don’t think I’ve ever heard the lovely torch song,”Losing My Mind” (FOLLIES) on the radio. If it had come out a decade earlier, Peggy Lee, Patti Page or even Connie Francis would undoubtedly have recorded it and it would have gained popularity over the airwaves.

  • Mickey McGuire says:

    “Touch Me” from Spring Awakening. That was basically a pop score, and I could definitely pass on many of them, but a few could cross over.

  • Defying Gravity from Wicked!

  • Robert says:

    I’ll Be Here from The Wild Party as a great soulful R&B track.

  • Jon M says:

    “Under Separate Cover” from “A Class Act” is my pick. Ed Kleban was a truly remarkable songwriter all around and should’ve been on the airwaves.

  • Jason Thinger says:

    I could picture all the In The Heights music on the radio!

  • Reg says:

    Take Me Or Leave Me from RENT. The GLEE girls proved it’s appeal, but Idina and Fredi had theater kids belting along way before Lea and Amber. The #1 diva anthem of modern Broadway. A True Hit.

  • Tiphanie says:

    I think “There’s a Fine, Fine Line” from Avenue Q would have done well on radio. It’s definitely resonant, and melodically would fit with some of the pop ballads from a few years ago.

  • Andrea says:

    “Paradise” from Radiant Baby. Awesome 80’s song.

  • Mike Vogel says:

    “Satin Summer Nights” from “The Capeman.”
    An incredibly beautiful Paul Simon written/Marc Anthony sung tune that never got its due because the show flopped.

  • Cooper says:

    Hey Ken,
    The Bitch of Living is totally a cross-over song AND it would’ve brought young people to a show that might have shown them the possibilities within a great musical (the parallels between young people over 100 years ago & the youth of today was a strong identifier, especially with how well this one was done!). Isn’t that what we’re also trying to do: bring a new audience to the theatre/musicals, to maintain/increase (hopefully) the influx of new blood (tiger or not)…

  • jcsuperstar333@msn.com says:

    I always thought that “In Whatever Time We Have” from Children of Eden would have made a great cross over. It had the pop feel and came out at a time when pop duets were big. Can anyone say Barbara and Neil?

  • Duncan says:

    Totally “Rent”. I thought “One Song Glory” would have been the breakout hit.
    …and back at jcsuperstar333, Schwartz has said that “In Whatever Time We Have” has become his most-played song at weddings, so that’s some kind of fame right there.

  • Nancy Paris says:

    I’m a total sucker for “You Can’t Stop the Beat” from Hairspray.

  • Cynthia franks says:

    “One Song Glory'” from Rent. It’s very popular at the Non-show tune karaoke bars.

  • Ann Chiemi says:

    i have two.
    My favorite song to psych myself up is “Nine Percent Chance” from High Fidelity. I love the sentiment and the drive of it.
    My favorite pop ballad is “I Believe” from Altar Boyz. if anything could have made it to the radio from that show, that one should have.

  • “My Junk” from ‘Spring Awakening’ was one I always thought had “out-of-show” appeal; I also think “Life is Pandemonium” from ’25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee’ would resonate with many as well.

  • Hillary says:

    All That’s Known or Left Behind from Spring Awakening. Also, I think a lot of the songs from Rent would also be great on the radio.

  • Michael R says:

    I’ll Cover You (Reprise) from Rent

  • Porsche says:

    Perfect for you from Next to Normal.

  • Auntief says:

    Good Morning Baltimore from Hairspray. I love the joy that Tracy exudes when she sings!

  • Zoe! says:

    WOW My initial reaction was “Bitch of Living” (Spring Awakening) but reading through the other comments I see so many great choices. “Wicked Little Town” (Hedwig) is a beautiful song and sounds like a lot of the music i have listened to that I found on the radio. Many songs could work, especially if the singing style and instrumentation were altered slightly. But it seems like for new non-jukebox musicals we’re moving towards a more pop sound anyway, with BBAJ, Legally Blonde and all that… hooray!

  • Katherine + Samantha says:

    La Vie Boheme part A!

  • jared hershkowitz says:

    Any new song from a new show. Why advetise a show already doing well. Why not get the best songs from shows in development and start some interest! Like any song from “I Got Fired”, the 2010 NYMF winner or “No One Can Stop You From Loving” from “Ocean in a Teacup” from the TRU reading (standing ovation). Or any of a myriad of sensational songs from shows in various stages of moving on.

  • Theo says:

    “For Good” from Wicked and “Ease on down the road” from The Wiz. I also think “Solo Saxophone” from Miss Saigon is absolutely beautiful – it would make a wonderful radio ballad.
    So many options to be honest!

  • Anthony says:

    What an impossible question. There are so many amazing songs. How can I pick one?
    Here are a few thoughts:
    Superboy and the Invisible Girl
    Anything from Memphis
    Green Green Dress
    My Junk
    Where’s the Girl?
    Sarah Brown Eyes
    Big News!
    Bad Bad News

  • Rebecca LaChance says:

    “Super Lover” from Brooklyn!! Always wanted to hear that sexy groove on the radio.
    Great question!

  • CAM says:

    Streetsinger from Brooklyn The Musical.
    It’s just a song that moves me so much and i think it’d be great to have it spread to the world through the radio station and a way to see raw natural talent instead of the huge amount of auto-tune out there. After all, it talks about a song performed by a homeless guy who sings only for the love of it and not for the money. And also, how “change is on the way”. So, yeah, change would be on the way, if we had this sort of music playing in the mass communication system a.k.a radio station shows and all…

  • Leora H says:

    I think “I’m Alive” from Next to Normal would be good on the radio–it’s a good cross between pop/rock and alternative, and even though it makes perfect sense within the context of the show, there’s nothing in the song which specifically references the show and would make it obscure as a radio song.
    “Superboy and the Invisible Girl” could be great, but the part in the middle makes it very show-specific, and therefore maybe harder to make widely appealing.

  • Shaunna B. says:

    “96,000” from In The Heights!

  • Lauren says:

    The Phantom of the Opera’s “Music of The Night” should be on the radio.
    Pick ME!!

  • Jon says:

    “Song of Purple Summer” from Spring Awakening.

  • Again with the “Just ONE?!”
    If I Didn’t Believe In You – The Last Five Years
    See Here Smile AND Louder Than Words – tick, tick… BOOM!
    I Could Write Books – Zanna, Don’t!
    A Light in the Dark – Next to Normal
    Electricity – Billy Elliot
    All Grown Up – Bare
    Your Daddy’s Son – Ragtime
    Okay… I’m done.

  • Jules says:

    Tough choice!
    My top picks include:
    Immortality from Saturday Night Fever
    Louder Than Words from tick, tick… BOOM!
    It’s Possible (In McElligot’s Pool)from Suessical
    and
    Why from tick, tick… BOOM!

  • Jessica says:

    I think “Love Like That” from Passing Strange would have been perfect. I could envision it being on the radio. Stew is such a great songwriter that a lot of the PS songbook would totally be radio-friendly, but this one and probably “Prologue (We Might Play All Night)” are the ones that I could see being breakout hits.

  • Courtney says:

    Louder than Words from Tick Tick Boom!
    A lot of songs from Next to Normal. Perhaps Superboy and the Invisible Girl?

  • b_a_martino@hotmail.com says:

    Definitely “Hot Patootie – Bless My Soul” from “The Rocky Horror Show”. I’d definitely bop to that one… ya know, belt it out in my car!

  • Zach says:

    “Push the Button” from THE COLOR PURPLE

  • Sbnorthart says:

    I’d love to hear “I’m Not That Guy” from Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson. Well, really anything from that show, it’s so much fun;-)

  • peter says:

    I’m Alive – Next to Normal

  • Myra says:

    “Easy as Life” from AIDA. Deborah Cox’s remix version made the dance charts, but not the pop charts.

  • Nick says:

    I have to second “I’m Not That Guy” from Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson. Excellent song that should have received some mainstream radio play.

  • Tom says:

    “My Junk” from Spring Awakening. It was written by a pop “star,” (Dunkan Sheikh) is about a timeless pop theme and is sung buy among others, a hot television star (Lea Michele). It would have done well. I know it was mentioned by two other people, but they couldn’t choose one song as you requested and I gave reasons to back it up.

  • Lori Cartwright says:

    I Believe (Spring Awakening)

  • ALi says:

    Ahhh, so many choices…
    Everything from Spiderman!! What a great musical.
    Not.
    Joke! I kid.
    HEDWIG! “Origin of Love” and “Wig in a Box” — Hello! Amazing.
    “I Believe My Own Eyes” from Tommy is a KILLER duet, and I’ve always loved “Amazing Journey” too.
    “Too Darn Hot” from Kiss Me, Kate is, well, hot.
    “Bye Bye Blackbird” from Fosse is great. I wouldn’t change the station if it came on!
    I’ve always loved “Stoned” from Passing Strange, and if you take out the talking in the beginning and the mother’s part, it would be a hot radio jam!
    A newly vamped version of “Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets” (Damn Yankees) would be pretty sexy.

  • cindy says:

    i guess ‘i’ll cover you’ from rent

  • Alongexong says:

    I think “Freak Flag” from Shrek would fit right in with the Lady Gaga “Born This Way”/Little Monsters thing she’s got going.

  • Mary Ann O'Rourke says:

    Definitely “I miss the mountains” from Next to Normal! That song was stuck in my head for days after I saw the show…I would love to hear it more.

  • Catherine says:

    I’m Alive from Next to Normal. . . and a lot of songs from In the Heights!

  • Julian Blackmore says:

    ‘Populism’ from Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson!

  • Julian says:

    The Pet Shop Boys covered ‘Losing My Mind’ with Liza Minelli in 1989; that got a ton of airplay in the UK

  • Apolonia says:

    Favorites that I’d LOVE to hear on the Radio:
    “All That’s Known” – Spring Awakening
    “96,000” – In the Heights
    “A Step Too Far” – Aida

  • Razghiem says:

    Really anything from Next to Normal deserves to be on the radio. I mean “Just Another Day” and “Light” are great group numbers and “Perfect For You” breaks my heart everytime I hear it.
    Other songs that break my heart when I hear them and would love to hear on the radio: “Mr.Cellophane” from Chicago, “Fantasies Come True” and “Fine, Fine Line” from Avenue Q. I’m going to listen to these songs and have a good cry now.

  • Laura says:

    I know these are not modern pop suggestions, but I love “Just in Time” from Bells are Ringing and/or “I Believe in You” from How to Succeed. I can picture Buble or Clay Aiken singing either one!

  • David says:

    Actually, the song I would love to hear on the radio would be from a show I wrote, “Bewitched, The Musical”. The song is called “Never Told You”. A bit of background. When the show was being put together (I was the librettest), the composer was a terrific lyricist but struggled with the music. All of the songs sounded a little TOO much like songs we knew so we brought in a separate composer who took the existing songs and re-wrote the music and then added 3 new songs, including the closing number, because, as he said, “every musical should have a Barbra Streisand number — a song that can exist OUTSIDE of the show and stand on its own”. Since there was no love song between Darren and Samantha, he wrote a closing number for them. I fell in love with the song immediately (and so did audiences). I love it so much that I want it played at my wedding someday. The lyrics are as follows:
    DARREN:
    Never told you
    You are my magic
    You’re my inspiration
    I’ll be yours forever
    To hold you, romance you
    My whole life’s duration
    I never told you
    SAMANTHA:
    Never told you
    You are my champion
    You set me on fire
    I’ll be yours forever
    To hold you, enchant you
    Be all you require
    I never told you
    DARREN:
    Never told you how much I care
    SAMANTHA:
    Never told you how much I love you
    SAMANTHA AND DARREN:
    Never told you
    You are my everything
    Seems I never told you
    Anything at all
    Never told you
    My heart was empty
    Yearning for a love song
    But now that we’re together
    Forever
    My heart’s filled and beating strong
    And now I’ve told you.

  • tamra says:

    do i even have to comment to know where i’m about to go with this one?
    although i am confident most songs from altar boyz could have made main stream attention without having We Are the Altar Boyz to break the ice and explain the LOLz behind it none of the others would have the chance since religion isn’t exactly pop
    i’d also have to go with My Strongest Suit from Aida. It has a very catchy tune and if it can make me think like i care about “fashion” for 5 minutes i think it could take off (ok so i cant explain in a sense causing way
    What You Own from Rent because in a perfect world i am in charge and what i say goes 🙂

  • RC says:

    So many possibilities:
    Once Upon A Time – Brooklyn
    Everything Taboo – Taboo
    So Much Better – Legally Blonde
    It’s Your Wedding Day – The Wedding Singer
    It Can’t Be True – 13

  • Melissa says:

    I always thought “Without You” from RENT would be a great song for radio. Also, “All That Jazz” from CHICAGO. And pretty much anything from ZANNA DON’T.
    (Side note: Green Day’s “Good Riddance [Time of Your Life] is actually from their album, Nimrod, not American Idiot.)

  • I’ve been wanting to see this show for a while!

  • Jim Leveskas says:

    All the suggestions above are terrific, but I so enjoyed the song Go Back Home, as many others did, from The Scottsboro Boys. I listened to the cd of the show this morning on the way to work, and thought, this is a song I would enjoy hearing on the radio.

  • Sierra Rein says:

    I hate to say it, but I still love “Defying Gravity” from Wicked and think for a younger generation (with new rockin’ arrangements), the sentiment would still “fly” (pun intended) on the radio. I still love singing the song, in any case!

  • sandra says:

    BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG……DROOOOOOOL. Period.

  • Linda Shell says:

    “someone else’s story” from chess–love to hear it as sung by judy kuhn, and also as sung by linda shell 🙂

  • In keeping with the theme of the day, I vote for “The Secret of Happiness” from “Daddy Long Legs” by Paul Gordon. HEre’s a sampling: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/paulgordon, or you can download at http://www.daddylonglegsmusical.com
    Paul’s songs for this show are musical theatre but with a strong pop influence. So I think they would sound great on the radio.

  • Ryan McCurdy says:

    With ‘Pinball Wizard’ having made the leap decades ago to Top 40 Radio, with either The Who’s original or Elton John’s cover available for programming, I have to admit I always wished ‘Eyesight To The Blind’ would have risen as Tommy’s second single.
    It has the forward momentum of many an arena rock anthem, Townshend at his growliest, and has the pedigree of being recorded first as a true-blood blues single by Sonny Boy Williamson in 1951.

  • Michael Landman says:

    From Hair, besides the pop hits it did create (Aquarius, Good Morning Starshine, Let the Sunshine In) how about: Where Do I Go, Easy to be Hard, Air & Hair!
    Great question – thanks!

  • Monica says:

    “La Vida Eternal” from The Altar Boyz could have been a hit song on the charts! I think it could have even crossed multiple charts.

  • Laura says:

    “Glory” from Rent

  • Terrence Williams says:

    My choices would have to be:
    “Bitch of Living” – Spring Awakening
    “Easy As Life” – AIDA
    “Real Life” – Tick Tick BOOM!
    “You Can’t Stop The Beat” – Hairspray

  • Mariel says:

    One Song, Glory – RENT

  • elainaremin@gmail.com says:

    I’d have to say “Steal Your Rock’n Roll” from Memphis

  • Jim says:

    96,000 from In the Heights or I’m Alive from Next to Normal.

  • Missy says:

    I can definitely hear ” Those You’ve Known” from Spring Awakening on the radio. Someone should really make this as a solo and pour out those lyrics!

  • jwfoil@aol.com says:

    96000 from ITH….

  • linda haddad says:

    ease on down the road from the wiz make a great hit

  • Tom Lupfer says:

    “Number 5 With a Bullet” from High Fidelity: a great song from an excellent (and overlooked) score.

  • Brian Cullen says:

    With all the political controversy about immigration recently ANTHEM from CHESS would be perfect on “lite” music stations. The recent Josh Groban version should be heard!

  • I can think of about 5 songs from the 2006 off-Broadway musical I LOVE YOU BECAUSE that I could listen to for hours on end. That score should be famous.

  • Rob Bodnar says:

    “I’m Alive” from Next To Normal.
