There is no denying that a song is a powerful thing — just try and get one out of your head sometime. As much as you try, the more you work on it, it’s still there and it can sometimes come back at the worst possible time (3 a.m. is a real favorite). But sometimes a song can trigger a memory and transport you magically back to a place and time you thought you had forgotten.
And that, my friends, is why you need to come and see The Soundtrack of Your Life on Saturday, April 23, 2011 at the Victoria Theatre. The three songwriters featured on this program (Jimmy Webb, Barry Mann and Paul Williams) have created more memories per brain of anyone who grew up listening to music in the 60s, 70s and 80s than any other three people on the planet.
Jimmy Webb, in case you didn’t know, wrote “MacArthur Park,” “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “Galveston,” and a whole host of great songs. Barry Mann (with his wife and writing partner Cynthia Weil) wrote “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling,” “Under the Boardwalk,” “On Broadway” and many more. And Paul Williams brought us “We’ve Only Just Begun,” “Evergreen” and “Rainbow Connection.” Anyone out there who doesn’t instantly recognize any of those songs?
