“Something Just Broke” – Assassins
Music and Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim
If you are like the majority of the population, your New Year’s resolutions have already been broken by today. In this musical based on real people who made assassination attempts on U.S. presidents, this melancholy number captures that feeling of failure and helplessness when something bad happens and you’re not sure how or why. But don’t let a broken resolution break you. Pull yourself up and keep going.
