Forming an Artistic Opinion

Have you ever heard a line in a song and been instantly in love? That happened to me last night. I was watching a PBS documentary of the Broadway musical “In the Heights.” The show looked good, I’d heard great things about it, but nothing really drew me to wanting more. That was, until the final moments of the show. During the finale, they sang the words “the hydrants are open, cool breezes blow.” Somewhere between the lyrics and the melody I was hooked. I wanted nothing more than to hear the song again and to see the rest of the show so I could put it into context. Love in two lines.
