Bust a June

There's only one song about June that has managed to stick in my noodle. Remember this?  'June is bustin' out all o-over, all over the meadows and the hill..."  These immortal lines are from the musical Carousel.  Also known as the birthplace of the inspiring (or icky, depending on your viewpoint) 'You'll Never Walk Alone' and the improbably cheerful 'A Real Nice Clambake'. Carousel is not one of your top-ten musicals, and yet we have it on CD!  That's the kind of library we are.  We have Starlight Express, from Andrew Lloyd Weber on an off day.  Can't remember any songs but I don't roller skate either.   Bells Are Ringing, Comden!  Green!  Jule Styne! And I do recognize a song from this one - The Party's Over.  "They've burst your pretty balloon and taken the moon away."  Wow.  Stick a fork in that party.  So if you're looking for a musical soundtrack and your entertainment of choice is not well known, check in with the DMPL.  You'd be amazed.
