An hour-long commute on the Subway every morning means that I am spending a lot more time listening to my iPod than I used to (I find it to be a very effective method of pretending that the person sitting or standing next to me isn’t invading my personal space).
The other day, the soundtrack to the Broadway musical Avenue Q came on. I saw the show in London’s West End while I was studying abroad, and it is absolutely hilarious; starring both people and puppets, it tells the story of young adult, post-college life in New York City.
Now that I am living a young adult, post-college life of my own, a few of the songs struck a chord with me in a different way than when I first saw the musical as a junior in college. So I thought I’d share them with you. Even if you haven’t seen the musical, its worth listening–the plot isn’t too hard to pick up!
