Morning Aural: Barbra Streisand

Because it can’t all be twee indie rockers and Culture Club reinventions, today’s Morning Aural comes from Barbra Streisand’s The Broadway Album. As a little tyke, this is the CD which made Queerty gay. To this day, any attempt to sing “Pretty Women” winds up with us seguing to “The Ladies Who Lunch.” Looking back, the album is full of all the excess, synth and random Stevie Wonder appearances that made the 80s so gloriously self-involved, but hey, if I were Barbra Streisand, I’d make Stephen Sondheim whip up personalized lyrics to his biggest hits just for me too.
