Bui Doi

I have these days when I get a tune stuck in my head and can’t get rid of it no matter what I do. Normally these tunes are rubbish, useless pieces of musical trash that happen to find popularity in the charts – however, today’s brain theme is the rather wonderful Bui Doi from the musical Miss Saigon.

We’ve acquired a brass band arrangement of this recently and we’ve played it out a couple of times. It’s a beautiful theme that builds and builds and I’m getting tingles just thinking about it.

Youtube, as usual, has an example:

What an amazing piece of music. I’m probably one of the few people left in the country not to have seen either Miss Saigon or Les Miserables. I think I need to be buying some tickets.
