Rebecca Luker: "It Might as Well Be Spring" (State Fair). Here's the perfect marriage of music and lyrics. I love the slightly melancholy nature of this beautiful song, mixed with the clever descriptions of spring. The lyric "But I feel so gay in a melancholy way, that it might as well be spring" pretty much sums it up.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
