Me-Memory.jpgThis week I move on from "I Dreamed A Dream" and "Rose's Turn" to "Memory" from Cats.

I have seen Cats on stage more than any other musical. The mother of one of my best friends would buy tickets and take the short thrip to Memphis with us. I fell in love.

I made a Grizabella costume for DC's annual High Heel Race last year. I destroyed a faux fur coat I had for years, but it was totally worth it. I also was able to wear sensible heels and have a fake limp, for which my feet were very thankful.

There is a video of me drunkenly lip-syncing to "Memory" that I will not be including here - but the picture is of me.

Elaine Paige wins my vote. Let me know your favorite, and if you find a version I have missed, let me know and I'll put it up. Also feel free to give me suggestions for next weeks song.

Check out the videos after the jump.
