https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tl0DMTlwLw4 The perfect song for those of us that over the fluffy feelings of Valentine's Day. Though the song is about the denial of feelings and that may apply to some, for me it's about being happily single on this day of obsession and gift-giving.

Within… Continue reading Carrying the Banner – Newsies (Original Broadway Cast)
