  18. Signing on to this, as well. The poem didn't do much for me, but Gorman is plainly a talented kid. These inaugural poems tend not to show off their authors at their best anyway, and her enthusiasm was contagious, if I may use the word.
  19. Agreed on all counts. "Hallelujah" has taken on something of the status of a secular hymn, and I'm guessing that's why it was chosen, even if it's mainly about sex. (You can just listen to the "hallelujah" part.) I think John Cale said that when he asked Cohen if he could cover the song, Cohen sent him enough pages of lyrics to fill the Sunday NYT, so there's a lot from which to pick and choose.
  20. Lady Gaga has pipes. Other items on the day's menu okay, if predictable. "Hallelujah?" "Amazing Grace"? lmspear writes: It just makes my blood boil when that song is presented as feelgood patriotic pablum.
  21. Thank you for posting, Dancerboy90210. Not long ago I read one of those 'What do dancers think of this-or-that-ballet-movie-or-series?" pieces. One of the dancers quoted said he knew of real-life happenings like the incident in which a dancer is determined to go on in spite of sustaining a serious injury for fear of losing the role. Kourlas singles that out as a melodramatic touch. Interesting. (I gave up on the show, myself.)
