Jay Althouse : Lydia, the Tattooed Lady

Would you believe this song was written by the same songwriting team that wrote The Wizard of Oz, Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg? It's true. They created this number for comedian Groucho Marx to sing in the 1939 movie At the Circus. It's a tour de force of comedic writing, in the style of Gilbert and Sullivan. An absolute must-have for men's groups.

Paris Rutherford : It's Only a Paper Moon

The great Harold Arlen wrote this for an unsuccessful Broadway play. But you can't keep a good song down. This has been recorded by Ella Fitzgerald, Benny Goodman and many more. Here is a treatment that begins with the choir in unison for the first two verses establishing an easy swing style. The bridge keeps swinging but with tight harmony and it is followed by a dynamite choral scat section. It goes out swinging as hard as it began but with hip, jazzy harmony and a Basie ending.
