Singing is so crazy, isn’t it? How insane is it that someone can reduce you to tears simply because their voice is too good to handle?
For example – I cannot listen to the song ‘Gimme Gimme’ from Thoroughly Modern Mille without crying. This is not a sad song, nor is it exceptionally happy. Sutton Foster’s voice is just so good that I have no other way to respond than to weep.
Also, this live version of Idina Menzel singing ‘Defying Gravity’ produces similar effects… on the CD track, people continue to cheer for a solid minute after she’s done.
