Sarah Potter Writes

Pursued by the Muses of prose and poetry

Music Passion

My music passion for August is “Any Moment” — sung here by Robert Westenberg (as Cinderella’s Prince) and Joanna Gleason (as the Baker’s Wife). This song is from the musical “Into the Woods” — music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. The  story is from a book by James Lapine, the synopsis of which you can read at James Lapine also directed the original production, first debuted at the Old Globe Theatre in 1986 and premiered on Broadway in 1987.

When I saw the subject of this month’s music passion, I knew the challenge to come up with my usual medieval or renaissance song would be impossible, as people then had a completely different concept of moment to the one we have now. Instead, I chose to time-travel to 1986 for thoroughly sentimental reasons, as it was the year my son was born.

  1. A cute song Sarah 😉
    I will have to go search for “moment” song for this challenge!!


    • You might like “Moments in the Moonlight” – Frank Sinatra. It’s one of his earliest recordings from 1940. I think it’s the sort of thing you like, and it was my second choice out of the moments selection I found.


  2. Wow this is a very good one 🙂 I enjoyed it very much! Thans Sarah! xoxo
