#Allegiance #Lea Salonga #music
Lea Salonga is currently affiliated with a new musical called Allegiance that is trying to make it to Broadway. It’s a musical near and dear to my heart about the experience of a Japanese American family through events just prior and through World War II, focusing in particular on the Internment- essentially my family history.
I would love it if more people got interested it, because this bit of history is too important to forget, and simply because the musical is amazing- I was lucky enough to see an early production of it in San Diego which reduced me to tears. So to promote it here on tumblr, here’s one of my favorite songs from the show, recently made available in a new mini-EP you can get on iTunes and Amazon. Enjoy.
I Love How You Love Me-Neutral Milk Hotel
Neutral Milk Hotel is playing in Prospect Park this summer!! But my friends who’d actually go see them with me aren’t going to want to pay $40 admission. What do I do.
Five Hundred Miles // Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan & Stark Sands
Lovergirl | Teena Marie
Saw Dirty Girl yesterday and loved it. The coordinated car dancing to this song was maybe the best thing I’ve ever seen.
Songs on The Hunger Games soundtracks are always so grim. So naturally, I dig this.
