"Those Were the Good Old Days" (Richard Adler and Jerry Ross). A wonderful song from Damn Yankees and yet another example of juxtaposing lighthearted music with gruesome imagery…certainly a recipe for a good musical comedy song about murder and mayhem. Unless you want to try juxtaposing gruesome music with totally innocent imagery. We'd really like to see that, so consider this a challenge, world!
