“To Be Remembered” – Blackbeard
Music and Lyrics: Rob Gardner
Edward Teach, also known as Blackbeard the pirate, died on this day in 1718. His life has been romanticized in novels and films, as well as this musical where Blackbeard sings this exhilarating number expressing his longing to be remembered. If Blackbeard truly felt such a desire, the fierce pirate certainly got his wish.
