I almost cried myself back to 1998 watching "Alive Again"! I took my aunt's favorite Evita music, "Don't cry for me Argentina" to her stroke nursing home along with a bow of purple lilac to place under her nose to smell while listening to Evita. Not only did she sing along; her twisted face and body relaxed into a beautiful heaven like setting!! And this was 1998, oh, It pained me to leave. Right On, "Alive Again".
