Something for Thursday

Ignore the images (from some anime or other) and just listen to Julie Andrews singing as Guinevere in Camelot.

What a terribly sad, sad song! Lerner and Loewe manage to distill, in three minutes, the awful reality of the Guinevere-Lancelot pairing: the awful pain of unspoken love that becomes doubly painful when they can no longer bear the pain of that silence.

If only Camelot had a better book, because the songs are so stunning....
