"The Glamorous Life" from the film version of A Little Night Music. I'll never tire of singing this piece, even though it was written for a girl. The song takes you on a thrilling journey of excitement and fear, of joy and sadness, of acceptance and deep regret. Jonathan Tunick's orchestrations are top notch as well, and perhaps some of his best work.
