“Not a Day Goes By” – Merrily We Roll Along
Music and Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim
A man contemplates the last twenty years of his life and the choices he’s made in this musical told in reverse chronological order based on the play by George S Kaufman and Moss Hart. This song which captures the aching feeling of lost love that lingers day after day is in honor and remembrance of the events of 9/11. While it may seem inappropriate given the show’s title, the heartbreaking number makes a point about all tragedy in that we never really get over it.
