So Much Stuff to Sing

Nov 15, 2022

And now for something completely different. We're embarking on a mini-mini-series: a 2-part look at songs that managed to have a life even if they shows they came from didn't. First up, it's "You've Got Possibilities" from the almost totally forgotten 1966 musical "It'sa Bird...It's a Plane...It's Superman". A score by Charles Strouse and Lee Adams -- and production and direction by Hal Prince -- didn't save this show from being the biggest flop in Broadway history at the time, but somehow this song managed to find a place for itself. We discuss why. 

All clips are from the 1966 Orignal Broadway Cast Recording of "It's a Bird...It's a Plane...It's Superman" featuring Linda Lavin and are used in accordance with the Fair Use Exemption for criticism and commentary.
