Broadway is full of love songs. Some of them can seem a little bit odd and not very romantic, at least at first. Here are the best, yet wired love songs on Broadway!
“Johanna” (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street)
It is pure fairy tale magic and yet somehow succeeded through overwhelmingly beautiful Sondheim music. There is something about this song that I can hide behind a wall, but in this context, you can be sure that every take takes less than 10 minutes.
“Ten Minutes Ago” (Cinderella)
There is a passing obsession with this song from my youth, and it really is the song of my suppression. There’s masturbation in it, although I don’t know what to do with it, it’s really a song about crushing rubbish.
“How Could I Ever Know” (The Secret Garden)
It is pure fairy tale magic, and in this context, you can be sure that each set is under 10 minutes. It is the most romantic song in the history of musical theatre, but also one of the least romantic songs.
How Could I Ever Know “is not a traditional love song, but a duet sung by a dead wife and the husband she left behind. The duet is sung by the wife of the deceased husband and a husband who has been abandoned by his wife.
“My Junk” (Spring Awakening)
This is a song about a passing obsession with masturbation when I was a teenager, but it’s really about masturbation, although I don’t know what to do with it. This is one of the most romantic songs on Broadway, and it’s really about garbage that’s really the song of a crush.
“I Won’t Send Roses” (Mack & Mabel)
It’s nice to see a man who is ahead of you and talking about his limits, but of course, you don’t really want to leave. Sailing “is a song about the love of the person you love and the love of sailing. More specifically, “Won’t Send Roses” follows the tradition of conditional love songs. It’s about being pushed away and being loved and then being abandoned, which, you know, I’m not sure what to do. M really not in
Maybe I’m a bit arrogant, but it’s just a bit too much romantic song for me at the moment, I think, and maybe that’s okay.
“Sailing” (A New Brain)
In the context of the show, we know that Roger really loves Gordon and that he loves what is going on in his head. But there is still a sense that lasting love is not taken for granted. “Waste of Time” is unbearably sad because we don’t know what happened in Parade before it’s sung. Taken out of context, this is simply the most powerless – inspiring song ever written and inspired in Broadway history.
These wired love songs on Broadway are certainly a great addition to every musical, be it romantic or, well, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.
