“The Love of My Life” – Brigadoon
Music: Frederick Loewe Lyrics: Alan Jay Lerner
After unsuccessfully trying to seduce a man, the wanton Meg ruminates on her many affairs in the search for love in this song. Sometimes it takes a while as proven on this day in 1996 when the man married the most times (a world record at 29) finally found the love of his life when he married the woman married the most times (23). You may balk at that prospect, but you won’t at this tribute to the pursuit of love, one of the more gamesome numbers from this beguiling musical about a mystical village in Scotland which only appears once every hundred years.
