Climb Every Mountain
Writers - Rodgers/Hammerstein
Yes, it's the Rodgers and Hammerstein inspirational showstopper from The Sound of Music, one of several "unique" songs the Boys performed on October 26, 1997, at the Stonewall Concert at Royal Albert Hall.
During this period Chris and Neil were viewing a lot of classic movie musicals as part of their preparations for writing their own musical Closer to Heaven, an experience that almost certainly inspired them to perform this song. The Stonewall Concerta commemoration/celebration of the gay rights movementwas an ideal venue for a lyric about overcoming life's obstacles.
