“Sailing” – A New Brain

Music and Lyrics: William Finn

What would you rather be doing today?  In this affectionate song, a man sings to his hospitalized boyfriend providing him an escape from the dreary surroundings.  It’s just one of the many sweet moments in this musical centered on the sudden, terrifying notion that death may claim you before accomplishing all that you want in life.
