At our recent “Looking Back, Looking Forward,” concert, choir member Nelz A offered the following words about “The Song that Goes Like This.”
In every Broadway musical — especially the ones composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber — there’s always this excruciatingly insipid love song that is incredibly long, constantly changes keys, and has insanely high notes. Such a song was parodied in the Monty Python musical comedy Spamalot.
We first performed this song at our OUT ON STAGE concert. I remember we were giggling through our first rehearsal of this song. I was a bass when I first sang this, and I had fun. Now I’m singing this as a tenor painfully trying to hit that E in the lyrics, when it’s really a G. But all in good fun. We all enjoyed singing this song as it is a testament of our sense of humour and fun singing together all these years.
At this point, you may be curious what the hell is this song. Well, it’s The Song That Goes Like This.
Peace! Nelz A, Lauryn H, Michael T and Ben L
