Sky: The Musical – Act 1: Sky

The Story
The sky towers above – seemingly endless, but is it?

The sky is a place for imagination – imagining the swift flight of a bird – imagining  floating like a butterfly – imagining soaring like an eagle – imagining being on a plane that takes you to an exotic land.

The sky is a place for dreams – the dreams to fly – the dreams to go beyond – the dreams of a future love we don’t yet know – the dreams of the love we have – the dreams of a love that remains – the dreams serving as memories of a loved one who is gone.

The sky – a place for contemplation – wondering about what to do – wondering what will be – wondering what has been.

The sky as a metaphor – a smoke – whether haunting or hopeful, a sign of brightness and darkness – for calm and storm – a blanket – infinity.

The sky is a place for everyday things – a place that never seems the same – the place that is the steadiness of the sun, the moon, the clouds, and the stars.

Welcome to Sky: The Musical.

Program
PlaybillSkyAct 1: The Sky

Together we can face any challenges as deep as the ocean and as high as the sky. (Sonia Gandhi)

The sky is an infinite movie to me. I never get tired of looking at what’s happening up there. (K. D. Lang)

The sky is the daily bread of the eyes. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Excuse me while I kiss the sky. (Jimi Hendrix)

The way of fortune is like the Milky Way in the sky; which is a number of small stars, not seen asunder, but giving light together: so it is a number of little and scarce discerned virtues, or rather faculties and customs, that make men fortunate. (Francis Bacon)

Guidelines

  • Songs with either Sky or Skies must be in the title
  • Caution: No songs using Sky/Skies as a compound word (skyward, skylark, skydive, etc)
  • No duplicates (first-come, first-serve)

Production Note
To prevent browsers crashing from loading too many videos, please 1) include the song title and artist in your text, and 2) paste the URL as part of your last line (not a new line). The latter will provide a link, thus not embed the actual video … but I don’t mind unembedding, so apologies are not necessary.

Announcement
Welcome to Opening Night for Sky: The Musical. This blog musical has great potential, so let’s get on with the show. Any classic rockers in the crowd? Let’s hear for The Alan Parsons Project with Eye in the Sky.

  1. Dear aFrank,
    I am so pleased that I decided to check my blog status. In the process, I decided to pay you a visit. AND … look what’s here … a Musical. This is a wonderful welcome back. Thank you.
    I hope to start posting. I will look forward to your visits, once again. 😊
    This line is a beautifully poetic one: ” the place that is the steadiness of the sun, the moon, the clouds, and the stars”. This is a spectacular musical. I am looking forward to enjoying all of the selections. Thank you for producing these entertaining musicals.
    Toodles,

    • Debra,
      An excellent choice of a different genre. Gotta love the images … and believe or not, I haven’t been to Paris. (well, besides the airport) … FYI: … Andy Williams resided in Cincinnati for a time, which actually helped vault his career.

    • Carrots,
      Good use of caution. I discourage comments with multiple songs because that takes possible songs away from others. However, several come back with additional songs later (about 18 hours after the initial post) … and maybe with multiple. … In other words, a perfect addition! Listening to it now … I didn’t know this one … definitely a haunting sound, but I also hear the beauty. Many thanks!
