Song of the Day #136

Song of the Day: The Music That Makes Me Dance, music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Bob Merrill, from the Broadway musical version of "Funny Girl" (listen to the infuriatingly brief Barbra Streisand audio clip here, and in a more recent duet with Kenny G). It was dropped from the 1968 film, unfortunately, but it lives on in countless renditions since, from Natalie Cole to Christina Aguilera to Joanne Barry (my sister-in-law).
