Happy June the 1st fellow readers! 

Jumping right in, this weeks #MusicMonday is again from a musical (it seems to be the only music I am listening to at the moment!) and just like last weeks musical, it features the wonderfully talented and good looking, Derek Klena!

'Some Kinda Time' - Performed by Eddie Birdlance and the Marines 
(Portrayed by Derek Klena and Josh Segarra, Steven Booth, Adam Halpin and F. Michael Haynie)

I must admit despite watching this musical - Dogfight - more times than I can count on one hand, I am still in love with the soundtrack featuring the voices from the likes of Derek Klena, Lindsay Mendez and Annaleigh Ashford. 
I wish I could talk about the whole album as I think each song brings something different to the table but eventually I decided to settle for this single song as it was the first song I fell in love with from the soundtrack. And  may I just take this moment to say, those harmonies...oh.my.god.

For those who have not seen the musical Dogfight, it is an adaptation from Nancy Savoca's 1991 film of the same name, Dogfight. The musical premiered Off-Broadway at the Second Stage Theatre in 2012 with the music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

It's the 21st November 1963 and on the night before their deployment to a small but growing war in Southeast Asia, three young Marines (Birdlance, Boland and Bernstein; "the 3 bees") set out for one final boys' night. When Corporal Eddie Birdlance meets Rose, who is an awkward and idealistic waitress, he enlists to win a harsh bet with his fellow recruits in a game called 'Dogfight' (hence the title). Rose rewrites the rules of the cruel game and teaches him the power of love and compassion leading to a love affair.

Dogfight takes the audience on a romantic and heartbreaking theatrical journey that will stay long after you see the hauntingly beautiful performance.
