Barbie's Showtune(s) of the Day #9: Selections from Follies

In honor of the spectacular announcement yesterday from the Kennedy Center about their upcoming spring 2011 production of Follies, I thought I would post some of my favorite songs from the iconic Stephen Sondheim show.

In Buddy's Eyes, Follies, as performed by Marin Mazzie--although I think this song works best when performed by a slightly older actress, Mazzie's performance is irresistible and she truly exploits all of the emotion in the song

Losing My Mind, Follies, as performed by Barbara Cook--in my opinion, nobody interprets Sondheim better than Barbara Cook and this performance is just terribly heartbreaking
