Posted by & filed under .

You either love Linda Eder or you fall in Love with Linda Eder.  When I first her her sing I thought that’s a gorgeous voice, but it sounds like someone trying to be Barbra.  The I heard Jekyll and Hyde and realized how wrong I was.  Linda Eder doesn’t just sing amazing versions of Broadway Songs, she conquers them.  I already shared two of my favorite Linda Eder covers “The Impossible Dream” from Man of Lamancha and “Don’t Rain on My Parade” from Funny Girl so after watching Idina Menzel destroy anyone else’s chance at ever covering “Let it Go” from Frozen, here are 7 Linda Eder songs and covers you cannot live without.  Feel free to leave a comment with your own favorite Linda Eder Song below.  You can also buy the MP3 and CD versions through the widgets and links.

Someone Like You – Jekyll and Hyde.

This is the song that made me fall in love with her. Not only is she the original in the role, she set a standard that nobody has been able to beat, match or take on. Here is Linda Eder singing “Someone Like You” from Jekkyl and Hyde.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

We know she takes on iconic songs and then takes them over, so how do you think she’ll do against Judy Garland with Somewhere Over the Rainbow?

I Don’t Know How to Love Him

I love Andrew Lloyd Webber’s music and this is one of my favorite showtunes. If you haven’t fallen in love with Linda Eder’s voice yet, this song will help you to start to!

Bring on the Men

Back to Jekkyl and Hyde. It’s almost beach season and that means it’s time to Bring on the Men or to get your butt back in the gym. This song is perfect for working out and motivation.

Out Here On My Own

Here is Linda Eder on Star Search proving that she has always been an amazing singer and was ready for Broadway.

A New Life

Another one of my favorite showtunes and Linda Eder songs. She kills this one and if you don’t like it, you probably should ignore all posts about Linda Eder from this blog. This one is amazing!

Vienna

I wasn’t sure if I should do I Dreamed a Dream or Vienna by Linda Eder. She does both of them extremely well, but when you take a song that isn’t as well known and can bring a crowd to their feet, that is definitely the winner.

If you still don’t love Linda Eder songs or if you don’t see your favorite Linda Eder songs on this list, feel free to leave a comment with your favorite song, or go to the Idina Menzel section for another amazing belter. Linda is an amazing singer and once you’ve heard a few of her songs like the two I mentioned at the beginning of the post, you’ll instantly fall in love. She is amazing at taking songs that are hard to sing and making them almost impossible to match which is why we are a huge fan of Linda Eder and the songs she covers.

Someone Like You – Jekyll & Hyde – Lea or Linda? Who is Better?

Posted by & filed under , , .

Today when I was jogging I was listening to the orginal cast recording of Jekyll and Hyde starring Linda Eder. I know, I think I’m one of the only people that likes to workout to showtunes instead of house music. The worst part is I sing and act out the songs while I’m jogging so it’s even worse than you can imagine lol. Anyways, Deborah Cox had an amazing voice when she was starring as Lucy in the touring cast of Jekyll and Hyde the Musical, but unfortunately her voice isn’t able to shatter glass, instead it just fills up a cup and soothes you. I never got my fix of glass shattering notes from the show, even though there are a ton of amazing songs in it, so I listened to a couple of versions and the two that I love the most by broadway stars are Lea Salonga and Linda Eder.

What’s kind of cool about the videos of them performing it is that they both start out by explaining what the song means to them and comparing it to other things. The comparisons are similar, but each one has their own twist on it. The other thing I love is that both of them tweak the song a bit to make it work with them and they both do an amazing job. The problem is I can’t figure out which one I like more.

They both shatter glass, they both make you focus on them and actually feel what they are feeling and they both have amazing tweaks to the song. That’s why I could figure out which one to post so I wanted to see what you all think. Which version do you like more, Linda Eder singing Someone Like You (who was the first Lucy in the original cast) or Lea Salonga who is absolutely amazing and one of my favorite performers. I can’t decide which one is better, so I’d love to hear whose version you like more.
