Aedin includes a number this afternoon from the 2015 musical Something Rotten!

Favourite songs too from Enchanted, South Pacific, Into the Woods and George M. And we travel out west with Brokeback Mountain and The Big Country, to France with Amelie and classic film music from North by Northwest and The 39 Steps.
