So, one of the highlights of my day are the several times daily concerts provided by the courthouse bell tower across the street. When I first arrived, it was show tunes - "Moonriver" (not really a show tune, fine), "Matchmaker" (the most Jewish thing in WV, as far as I can tell), "Surrey with a Fringe," "I Could Have Danced All Night," "Impossible Dream" (oddly, I dunno, inspiring?), "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning," "On the Street Where You Live."
Then came the melancholy - "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "Yesterday."
Then the juxtaposed-with-Ripely classics - "Piano Man," "Downtown," "New York, New York."
And now, the Carpenters' "Close to You," causing me to pause data entry to chime in "ahh, ahhhhh, close to you . . . ."
