The Night That Goldman Spoke at Union Square. It has such a great melody, and everytime I take the subway and go through Union Square, it's stuck in my head for the rest of the day. I love that number!

Yeah Ragtime songs are going to haunt me FOREVER...even worse since I know the music perfectly but don't know the words. The other day I had to look something up for school and it was a website based out of Lawrence, Massachusetts and I got that song stuck in my head...get these songs in my head every day even though the show ended back in July. A word to the wise, never play in the pit orchestra. Being in the show, you get the songs out of your head eventually. Pit? Never...ever...ever...*dies*

I got all teary when we played the exit music in the final show. It was just so emotional and we were all into it, and even though the kids were goggling at us from the top it was still so intense. *dreamy sigh*

Ragtime has such an amazing and diverse offering of music. My favorites are The Night That Goldman Spoke, He Wanted To Say, Gliding, Coalhouse's Soliloquy and What a Game.

This whole show is amazing and always invokes a major emotional upheaval for me. I love every single song. But if I had to chose one, it would be "Til We Reach That Day," since it made me cry my eyes out the first time I heard it.

"New Music" and "Back to Before" are close seconds, though.

I have to choose? :( If I had to pick just one, it would be the Prologue. It's just incredible, one of the greatest opening numbers of all time.
