PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Murder For Two Songwriters Joe Kinosian and Kellen Blair Pick Songs About "Murder and Mayhem"
15 Jan 2014
"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!
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.
