5 on Friday Set 159

Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.

Happy February Birthdays to these birthday girls!

1 - There Are Worse Things I Could Do - Stockard Channing - Grease soundtrack

2 - The Closer I Get to You - Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway

3 - This Will Be Natalie Cole

4 -Vissi D'arte - from Tosca composed by Puccini - Leontyne Price

An aria from my favorite opera.

5 - Oh, Johnny The Andrews Sisters featuring birthday girl Patty Andrews

This promo piece for Miami City Ballet's production of Company B begins with the song that was my favorite from this contemporary ballet, which I was thrilled to watch when I worked at the theatre in the 90s.

Here's the whole song - can't get enough of it!

Stockard Channing is one of my favorites. Loved this Set this week!

Vastly different but the Stockard Channing song was always my favorite from Grease and I love Leontyne Price singing anything. Now for the Oscars!!!!
