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.

"The Proposal/The Night Was Alive" (Brian D'Arcy James and Martin Moran from Broadway's Titanic)

Ulterior Motives: On April 15, 1912, the fateful "ship of dreams" Titanic descended into the Atlantic Ocean after striking an iceberg. April 15th has since been known as Titanic Remembrance Day to honor and remember the 1500 people who perished. In April of 1997, the Broadway musical Titanic opened at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. The melodic score was composed by the great Maury Yeston and the cast featured the talented Brian D'Arcy James, Michael Cerveris, Martin Moran and Victoria Clark. In this number, crew member Frederick Barrett (James) is sending a telegram to his love Darlene in Nottingham, England with the help of Radioman Harold Bride (Moran).

Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Martin Moran's Harold Bride is so honest. At 1:30, his character tells of his life when he found solace with his telegraph machine. A whole new world had opened up for him and his lonely life. From a vocal standpoint, Brian D'Arcy's soaring vocals from 2:43 - 3:13 is Broadway heaven. What a sweeping moment of the show's score.
