“Cross the Line” – Big

Music: David Shire   Lyrics: Richard Maltby, Jr.

Twelve-year-old turned magically into an adult Josh crosses several lines in this song when he teaches his coworkers at a toy company how to relate to kids through dance.  The leading man/child delivers the engaging number with aplomb and is soon joined by the rest of the cast in this musical based on the film of the same name.  In a less dance-y and more serious way, an American named Joe Dresnok  defected to North Korea on this day in 1962, the details of which are covered in a documentary film of his life called Crossing the Line.
