Danny - I really didn't want to sound too much like a groupie today. But this posting is absolutely tremendous. I so enjoyed reading it this morning - not to mention that I learned a lot from it. I had no idea Arlen wrote all those wonderful songs.

Wow. Now you've got that song stuck in my head.

I had to sing (or listen) to so many of his songs, so many dozens of times in my summer theatre days. Thing is, his songs would get stuck in your head -- and you'd be **happy** about it. Thanks for reminding me.

Danny-Tamar is right. This post is so educational-who knew? I had no idea Arlen wrote all those songs. Danny, you MUST write the Arlen biopic! Come on-it's ripe to be written, it's SO interesting and you are the perfect man to do it. Come on Danny-do it!!
Ok-I gotta go cancel my lunch date with Mr. In-between.

Danny--I love this. Mike did a whole show with the lyrics of Yip Harburg, who did hundreds of collaborations with Harold Arlen, including "Over the Rainbow," "It's Only a Paper Moon," "Last Night, When We Were Young (there's something to get in your cups over)," and hundreds of others. Mike put together a basic Yip Harburg bio/script to go along with the music. It was wonderful! He only did it once and I keep nagging him to find a place to do it again--your living room?--Marilyn

I would give anything for Mike to do that show in our living room! And maybe we could do a simultaneous blogcast!

I came here just to say . . . O Y ! ! ! !

Ah . . . that's better.
