Maria in Spats (or Maria at the palace) from Jerry Herman's Parade.

One of Those Songs - Liza Minnelli - can't recall the show.

How about the title song from the Walter Donaldson-Gus Kahn B'way hit - "Makin' Whoopee"? It is a clever patter song and was sung in the show by the star, Eddie Cantor. If you are not familiar with Cantor, I suggest you "Google" him.
The show was produced by Ziegfeld in the late '20s. Ed edwinphoenix@aol.com

A song I've really gotten to love is "Take The Moment" from "Do I Hear A Waltz". (Rodgers/Sondheim) I'm surprised this didn't become a better known song in the 60's; other than in the show, the only recording I've got is Sammy Davis Jr. The newer cast recording of the show from the Pasadena Playhouse is much better than the original, I think, and made me re-discover this show. "Moon In My Window" on the same album is also terrific.

Where did you get the DVD? I would love to see it! there were actually two or three of these shows, called--I believe--"Musical Comedy Tonght," which Mrs. Kaye put together. I have been looking for them for years!

I suggest two songs from the 1970's Cyrano with Christopher Plummer."You Have Made Me Love" and "Love Is Not Love" are both both ravishingly beautiful. I saw the show during its Boston tryout and could never understand why it flopped.

What about Barbara Harris singing "What makes me love him" from THE APPLE TREE? Ed Bennett

Musical theatre has certainly produced some wonderful love songs, both well-known and not so well-known.
