6. "Tell Me on a Sunday" from Tell Me on a Sunday
"Tell Me On A Sunday" is so simple and sweet and sad. This unambitious song is perhaps Lloyd Webber's most perfect piece in its unpretentious success at artfully conveying human experience. People can balk at the lyric about "a zoo that's got chimpanzees," but I buy it as a funny, quirky little moment in this heavy-hearted plea. Later recordings of the song include a high-belting bridge to up the stakes before the last verse, but the essence of "Tell Me On A Sunday" is this plaintive original version.
