Nick Blaemire: "Santa Claus is Comin to Town" (Jackson 5). Hearing this was the first time I realized Christmas was cooler than my grandma's yearly sweaters and that songs could be arranged a different way than the original. Lil' Michael is basically ordering Santa to hurry up and come to town, or else he will withhold the groove.
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.
