March 2022 at Musical Cyberspace is all about songs with people’s names in the title.
Given the universal hatred for the English language adaptation of this show that appeared on Broadway, perhaps I should have titled this post “Für Sarah”. With music by Jim Steinman and lyrics by Steinman, Michael Kunze, Kirke Kangro, Daniel Wyszogrodzki and/or Miklós Tibor – depending on which version in which language you’re talking about – the show holds a far higher status in Europe than in the United States. This particular song is a moving ballad, let down only by the inconsistent application of the rhyme scheme set up at the start of the song.
