Mad Music Monday 2.6.06

Music I can't get out of my head: No One Mourns the Wicked (from the Wicked soundtrack)

I've never read the book, never seen the musical, and until a week or so ago had never listened to the soundtrack. Now, it's on repeat in my car. The first song on the album is this song that I can't get out of my head...and not only can I not get it out of my head, I don't know all the words. "No one mourns the wicked...no one cries they won't return...no one lays a lilly on their grave"...and that's all I know...of a 4 minute song. I am going to see the musical in Atlanta in May (with two of my stinkin' awesome friends :) ) and I have until then to know all the words and read the book. (P.S. Wicked is the Wizard of Oz story as the Wicked Witch of the West's story...sneaky twist and super fun!)

Can we add a Wicked Sing-A-Long to our Thursday night itinerary? Once a week until May - we'll all know it by then! :) LOVE that you are a Wicked addict too!!!! WooooHooooo! Can't wait to see it!

I didn't know about "Wicked" until this past May when Steve and I were in Chicago. We saw the posters and immediately went to the theatre. Unfortunately they didn't have any matinees while we were there, and the only show that we could have gone to was the same time as the U2 show (the reason we went to Chicago) so that wasn't going to work. You will have to tell me about it after you see it!

that's erin to you! said...

Wicked is awesome! I'm so glad that you love it. Lindsey and I are going in May to see it as well...yay! How exciting. Oh. I have the songbook, if you need to know any more words, just let me know! Ha! :)
