"My favorite song of all time. Richard Rodgers, by the way...thought that was his finest work."


- Shirley Jones

(Even with all its misogyny, Carousel hits me so much emotionally harder than South Pacific. Stellar.)

The score of Carousel is absolutely amazing. The story annoys me in some ways, but a score that includes 'If I Loved You' (indeed, the whole 'bench scene', which is an amazing piece of work), the 'Soliloquy', that glorious waltz and 'You'll Never Walk Alone' deserves every bit of praise that has ever been lavished upon it! It's no wonder that Rodgers was so pleased with it.
