“The Perfect Year” – Sunset Boulevard

Music: Andrew Lloyd Webber   Lyrics: Don Black & Christopher Hampton

As the sun sets on the final day of the year, hopefully plans became reality, goals were met, and resolutions were kept.  Whatever happened, it has been the perfect year because you lived it.  While faded film star Norma Desmond sings this song under the delusion that everything will go her way, she expresses a lovely sentiment worthy of becoming a holiday standard as enduring as “Auld Lang Syne.”
