IT SHOULDA BEEN YOU, the joyous wedding day musical presented by Mad Theatre of Tampa, doesn't have a bad thought in its head. At times we wonder if it has any thought in its head, but rest assured, any thoughts it does have are good. The show contains some of the most mindless fun I've had at any musical of late; it's a guaranteed good time. Imagine the tickle of champagne bubbles in your nose, and that's the feeling you get while watching it. Giddy, goofy elation.

This release combines both specially selected songs and a couple of original numbers written by Braun herself. Inspired by a domestic abuse storyline on popular radio show The Archers, each song has a relationship with the next and the greatest success on this album is the choice and arrangement of song and the lyrics within them.
