(via Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim – “Somewhere”)

Sondheim wrote the lyrics and Bernstein stole the music from Beethoven’s “Emperor Piano Concerto” and Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake.” It’s beautiful and tragic in all the right ways for a proper Broadway ballad. Have you heard the Phil Collins version? Marianne Faithfull and Jarvis Cocker? Tom Waits? Bee Gees? Me Singing In The Shower version? (just kidding)
