In celebration of the March 22 birthday of the Tony and Olivier Award-winning composer of The Phantom of the Opera and Evita, Playbill.com is revisiting The Top Ten Songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Playbill.com correspondent Ben Rimalower offers his list below.
These Top Ten lists are tricky. I try to be as objective as possible, which often means favoring the more mainstream hits — there's a reason, after all, these songs had the impact they did. I mean if I were to just follow my heart, I'd sit in my apartment all day listening to The Rink. I suppose a different kind of list might explore songs that function dramatically in the context of a musical, but for now, I'm curious about the songs that linger in my mind and that seem to resonate with my own life.
