Barbra’s Favorite Broadway Love Song.

Barbra recently spoke to BroadwayWorld.com about her favorite Broadway Love Song:
“The first song that comes to mind is Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “If I Loved You” from CAROUSEL. It’s just about the most perfect love song written for the theater. I admire the intelligence of the lyric’s premise — two people each too shy to express their love, so they couch their true feelings in the form of a question, and then pretend it hardly matters…when of course they know it does. With its heart swelling melody, it never ceases to touch people. A few years ago during my last concert tour I loved singing Maury Yeston’s “Unusual Way” from NINE. It’s about those kinds of relationships where love isn’t easily defined.”
