Andrew Fox (orchestrator): "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf" (by LL Cool J off of 1991's "Simply Mad About the Mouse," originally from "The Three Little Pigs"). LL Cool J deserves credit if, for nothing else, delivering those hilariously toothless lyrics with an actual air of sexual menace. Also, the backing beat is pretty great, with an excellent use of the "Billie Jean" synth line in the female vocals.
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.
