"We Do Not Belong Together" from Sunday in the Park With George. This song is the culmination of the one the most powerful moments in Sunday In the Park… The sheer rawness of Bernadette [Peters] and Mandy [Patinkin]'s performances on the cast album transports you immediately back to the Booth Theatre. I can't help being moved every time I hear it, as Sondheim so brilliantly explores what it means to be a tortured artist and torn between passions of the heart and intellect.
