#246 A PIECE OF SKY Barbra Streisand
Barbra Streisand played the title role in 'Yentl', a cinematic triumph for the actress. Its soundtrack album featured lush music from Michel Legrand and songs packed with deep, thought-provoking lyrics from Alan and Marilyn Bergman.
"A Piece Of Sky" is featured at the film's close, as the protagonist is leaving Europe in search of greater freedom in America. After many years striving for studio backing, Streisand's efforts paid off. The film was finished and finally released in 1983. While she was snubbed by Oscar, Streisand became the 1st woman to collect the very first Golden Globe for Best Director.  
This is a list made up of the songs I enjoy the most, ranked in order of preference: the higher we go, the more I cherish them. Some were released as singles, others as album tracks. Some are obscure; others were worldwide hits or have universal appeal. They aren't always the most famous or popular, but simply a personal choice. I have excluded songs from the last few years in order to get a better idea of a song's lasting impression. I hope you find some new tracks to love, or re-discover some past favourites.
2 new instalments are added each day (every 12 hours) with 1 of the remaining 300 songs as well as moving down from #1201 to 1500, with 5 of those songs added daily.
