Song of the Day #757

Song of the Day: New York, New York, music by Leonard Bernstein, lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, is a highlight from both the Broadway musical "On the Town" and its 1949 film version. A great song dedicated to my hometown, this one is selected today to honor the memory of Betty Comden, who passed away on Thanksgiving Day, 2006. Listen here to an audio clip from the original Broadway show.

The news about Betty Comden but you don't mention her greatest work Singing in the Rain. A movie I know lots of lines from.

Hey, Chris, you're right... it's one of the best! But I've got my "Songs of the Day" planned way in advance.

It's coming. Promise. :)
