Each day, the Bbox team trolls YouTube for the hot clip—sometimes it's a brand-new moment and sometimes it's a throwback to an oldie but goodie. No matter what praise hands are shot up, pearls are clutched and the repeat button is hit.

"Your Song" (Michael Park)

Ulterior Motives: It's original Broadway cast vet of Dear Evan Hansen Michael Park's birthday! We found a #MCM Man Crush Monday worthy throwback clip from his days on soap "As The World Turns." His character Jack Snyder cozies up to the piano for a beautiful cover of Elton John's "Your Song" (or from Moulin Rouge for Broadway fans). This beloved actor of stage and screen has appeared on Broadway alongside a number of stars including Martin Short in Little Me, Daniel Radcliffe in How To Succeed... and Scarlett Johansson in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof.

Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Dreamboat! Michael Park in the late 90's had recently appeared on Broadway in Carousel and Smokey Joe's Cafe. Though the year is unclear, our guess is that it was around this time his character Jack on "As The World Turns" sang this beautiful melody. Oh to be in this cafe! Look at the captivated audience! Forgive us for not being familiar with his character's storyline on the soap but we are familiar with the fact that he sounds fantastic. Our ultimate moment is 2:40 - 2:48. The woman in the doorway's reaction would be all of us!
