Post a song from a musical with the best music.
After a great deal of thought, I thought I would choose “This Nearly Was Mine” from South Pacific. It’s a beautiful piece of music, a heartbreaking waltz from Richard Rodgers, with words that match it step for step by Oscar Hammerstein II, that will stay with you forever once you’ve heard it. Here is a section of the broadcast of the recent revival. The lead up to the song starts at 07:46.
