Music – By My Side from the Godspell Soundtrack

There is some incredible music in the Godspell soundtrack and I thought I would share some of it. My favorite song from the show is “By My Side”. Actually, it is my favorite song from any show. Others have come close (“On My Own” from Les Mis, “Seasons of Love” from Rent) but nothing has matched this song in my heart. I grew up singing with my mom as she played it on her guitar. It is simply gorgeous with some amazing harmonies. I do not have a professional caliber voice but if I did, this is the one song I would want to perform to an audience. Before I saw the revival of Godspell, I was going to post a video of this song from the movie version of the play. Now I am torn between two very different but equally gorgeous versions so I have decided to post them both. Enjoy.

About Ciarrai

Hi. My name is Kerry but here online I tend to go by the Gaelic version of my name, Ciarrai. I am a woman in my mid-30's who lives on Long Island, NY, with my husband, Rob, several guitars, a Nikon D40, more yarn, beads and books than I care to admit to and a cat who has a million nicknames and quite a few theme songs. I have a B.A. in Psychology and have recently returned to college to pursue a teaching degree so that I can eventually get a job as a High School English teacher. In addition to my major obsessions (Reading, Beading, Knitting, Music and Photography), I also enjoy playing Board Games, going to Renaissance Faires, Museums and Broadway Musicals.
