In the past couple of weeks I have been taking a break from tragedy and heartbreak (much as I love Dido it can get a bit exhausting), to prepare for a 50th wedding anniversary party. It’s been fun researching the hits of the early 60s and matching up with songs in my repertoire.
I’m also pulling in some of their favourites, a bit of the Sound of Music and West Side Story, as well as the above mentioned classic from South Pacific. I’ve not sung this before, as it is generally a man’s song, but it works well, and a bit of work with the score and backing track should have it ready by a week tomorrow!
I like doing this sort of party, and as I know the couple already, and several of their friends, I’ll be able to mingle and enjoy it too. And hopefully get someone to save a plate of food from the buffet for me!
