I loved this song before I knew the story of the show behind it. I love it even more now. "A Little Night Music" is my favorite musical by Sondheim. The entire show is either in 3/4 or 6/8 which makes you walk with a little lilt in your step or feel like you need to waltz while listening. The lyrics are clever, clever, clever, and the interpersonal relationships exhausting in their involvements. If you haven't listened to it before, I recommend getting the CD from your local library.
