Girl of the Moment– Maria Friedman, Adrian Dunbar – Top 10 Contender
There’s something so enigmatic about this piece that its melody will haunt you for weeks.
I discovered Girl Of The Moment by accident. One day I came across the 1954 recording of the “Lady In The Dark” TV special; the song jumped out and not only grabbed my attention but also took my imagination hostage. I listened to this song for weeks, trying to figure out who this girl of the moment was, and why she was so captivating.
It Only Takes a Moment – Charles Nelson Reilly, Eileen Brennan
What I love about Jerry Herman’s songs is how there’s always a resolution. Most of his songs tell a story with a beginning, a middle and an end. You could take the lyrics of this particular song and develop an entire novel. The lyrics have already dictated what the characters will do, and where they’re headed.
I know, it is hard to explain, but as I include more of Jerry Herman’s songs, I’ll make my point clearer.
