Song 33:365 is one of my favourite songs to play: Sun and Moon from the musical Miss Saigon. It’s a duet performed by American GI Chris as he falls in love with Vietnamese bargirl Kim and the orchestration of this song from the show is wonderfully ethnic with pentatonic overtones. I’ve tried to capture this in my performance.
Today I’m playing another song from the musical Miss Saigon. The Movie In My Mind is sung by Gigi and Kim and the other showgirls as they dream of a better life in America. If you’d like to hear more of my Miss Saigon performances, you can listen to the Soundcloud playlist which includes Sun and Moon, Last Night of the World and Why God, Why?
Today’s song, Why, God, Why? is from the 1989 musical Miss Saigon. In the musical Chris is about to leave Vietnam but realises he has fallen for Kim and this will have a profound effect on events. I actually recorded four other songs from Miss Saigon in 2010, so I’ve put these together in a Soundcloud playlist. Please let me know what you think by posting a comment here on the blog!
