One of the Best Songs Ever Written: Vienna
I think this is one of the best songs ever written. And there will never be anyone who can sing it in the same way Linda Eder does. All the mixes on this single ar great. And the lyrics may move you to tears. There's just something about the way Eder draws out her phrases (WE-ee WERE PO-etry; In Vie-E-na-A-a-a) She has a cry in her voice that breaks your heart. She herself sounds on the verge of tears as she whispers the last line, "It was the *best* time . . . of my life." If you haven't heard this song before, or if you've heard the six minute version on her albums "Linda Eder" and "It's No Secret Anymore," you should buy this album. The dance mixes force you to at least tap your toes (sadly, I have no will power and I simply get up and dance), while that last ballad version will bring to your knees sobbing. This beautiful lady is going places.
