Okay, these are more “Arrangements” I Wish I Wrote, but I figure that’s close enough. When I was a kid, I loved this movie, and watched it over and over again. Then the other day, “Oooooooooh Maaaaa, riiiiii, ah!” began to play in my head like a siren song (“Damn the pass-” Wait, that’s a different musical.) I looked for the songs on Spotify, and alas! There was nothing. As a tuned out member of the lazy “I need it now or F you” internet generation, this was enough to dissuade me for a few days. Until today when I looked them up on YouTube.
I’m pretty sure these arrangements were done by Marc Shaiman, as he did the score, and he’s awesome.
And the finale!
