    I don't know what the song is from, but what are you auditioning for?

    What a great thread!

    Actually Owen you are in luck there are a number of guys here on the board who are musicially inclined, So they might be able to help you and of course you can always try to use Google to search for it. Good luck in your search.

    Hmm, are you certain it was Peter Flynn? I did a Google Search on "Peter Flynn" "Lincoln Center", and found this page---apparently he did a performance of West Side Story for the Meet The Artist series.

    So, then I looked Peter Flynn up on ITDB to see what else he's been in. He was in The Scarlet Pimpernel, Sweet Adeline, One Touch of Venus, and Strike Up The Band, and none of those musicals have a song by that title either.

    orionsword57: Dang... I'm pretty good on old show tunes, but this one has me buffaloed. The theme of the song could fit a number of show characters, but I'm at a loss. I've recently used an Andrew Lloyd Webber song called "An Unexpected Song" (sheet music is available with Bernadette Peters on the cover), which although written for a woman, can be sung by either gender. The effectiveness of the song is that it shows off a wide range, but is a simple song to learn (key change in the middle that takes a little doing) and impresses.

    Sorry on the other...

    Hi Owen. I've looked everywhere for more info on a song near the title(s) that you mentioned and have come up empty handed. Besides, if it is a more classic/standard song it will not be right for FOOTLOOSE. Horrible show and I'm sorry that your school is doing it by the way. You need to sing something that is contemporary musical theatre. If you are not familiar with the show, I recommend you get the album and listen to it (if you can get through it without your ears bleeding or falling asleep). Listen to the different styles used in the show and try to find a song that is similar to that. Break a leg.

    PS: Never use "Unexpected Song" at an audition. It doesn't show off range really and is best suited for piano bars, Cabarets and concerts.

    Muppets? Originally recorded by the "new seekers"....don't ask.

    There's a land that I see where the children are free
    And I say it ain't far to this land from where we are
    Take my hand, come with me, where the children are free
    Come with me, take my hand, and we'll live

    In a land where the river runs free
    In a land through the green country
    In a land to a shining sea
    And you and me are free to be you and me

    I see a land bright and clear, and the time's comin' near
    When we'll live in this land, you and me, hand in hand
    Take my hand, come along, lend your voice to my song
    Come along, take my hand, sing a song

    For a land where the river runs free
    For a land through the green country
    For a land to a shining sea
    For a land where the horses run free
    And you and me are free to be you and me

    Every boy in this land grows to be his own man
    In this land, every girl grows to be her own woman
    Take my hand, come with me where the children are free
    Come with me, take my hand, and we'll run

    To a land where the river runs free
    To a land through the green country
    To a land to a shining sea
    To a land where the horses run free
    To a land where the children are free
    And you and me are free to be
    And you and me are free to be
    And you and me are free to be you and me

    You and me
    Ah-ah-ah-ah
    You and me
    Ah-ah-ah-ah
    You and me
    Ba ba-ba-ba-ba-ba, ba ba-ba-ba-ba-ba
    Ba ba-ba-ba-ba-ba, ba
    And you and me are free to be you and me
