{Top Ten Tuesday} Ten Literary Romances Meet Musical Numbers

Top Ten Tuesday (2).jpg

Did anyone else watch Grease: Live a couple of weeks ago? I missed it when it aired, but Hulu Plus had me covered. Now, I understand why all those girls on Tumblr were freaking out over Aaron Tveit several years ago. Vanessa Hudgens and all the T-Birds did a fantastic job, but he was absolutely amazing.

Since Grease: Live, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and Galavant have all been airing lately, I’ve been in the musical mood. I’ve been listening to Hamilton, Tarzan the Musical, and Sara Bareilles’s Waitress in my car and having Broadway-themed playlists as background music while blogging.

When I saw this week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme, I immediately knew I had to tie it in with my Broadway bingeing. I don’t know why, but I’m a nerd about picking out songs that remind me of my favorite ships. (If I had video editing skills, I’d undoubtedly be one of those Youtubers who make all sorts of fanvids.) I’m a huge nerd about British Literature too so I figured what better ships to mash-up with Broadway songs than ones from Jane Austen, the Brontës, and the like!

Years a reading British Literature and listening to Broadway compilation CDs prepared me for it!
