There’s a fabulous Stephen Sondheim tune called “Barcelona.”
My guess is that the only people reading this who’ve ever even heard of the song are my husband, my sister and my mother. Be that as it may, it’s been ringing in my ears of late as tomorrow – guess what? – I’m off to…Barcelona. (Whoops! There it is again!)
I haven’t been to Barcelona in – gasp – 25 years and something tells me that it may just be a tad different than my last jaunt through town when I distinctly remember that nobody, but nobody, went to bed before 1 a.m. My husband keeps asking me what I remember about the city and I tell him honestly: “I don’t remember anything, but boy was it fun!”
I’ll be gone for the rest of the week so things will be quiet over here at RealDelia.
But since I couldn’t bear to leave you with radio silence – and I know that you are now DYING to hear this song – here it is, courtesy of that fabulous Sondheim production, Company: Barcelona. (Note: Song begins around 1:25 mark)
Have a great week!
