Erik Stadnik joins the podcast to revel in the beauty of the music but also (what he thinks) is the dumbness of the lyrics in the song Tonight from West Side Story. This is the first duet sung by Tony and Maria. It could be looked at as beautiful or perhaps just the lustiness of young love.

Erik is an English teacher in Prague, and also the co-host of a couple podcasts. Those can be found here:
Doctor Who: The Writers’ Room
The Classic Horror Cast
