"Let it go," my dear friend, Todd, advised.
"I can't," I said, taking another sip of my vodka cranberry. "I just love SMASH too damn much!"
And is it really hard to see why? Unlike Glee, Smash's original songs have the confidence of believable hits.
Jennifer Hudson shows so much of her voice in this track - her signature brassy sound, unbelievable power and range, a fearlessness to go to an "ugly" break and yet stay beautiful, a peerless ability to paint a story, and a heartbreaking softness towards the end.
Bring back Smash!!!
