A Wonderful Guy

From the musical

South Pacific



Music by Richard Rodgers, Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II

"A Wonderful Guy" is a show tune from the 1949 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical South Pacific. It was first introduced by Mary Martin in the original Broadway production and sung by Mitzi Gaynor in the 1958 film adaptation. In the show, Nellie sings this song after being convinced that despite the racial differences between her and Emile, there is good in him. And so she is elated to be in love with him. Rodgers and Hammerstein were as inspired by Mary Martin's personality as they were by the character of Nellie Forbush to write this song. They introduced it to Mary Martin one night when they were at Joshua Logan's house fine-tuning the script. Hammerstein wrote this song to express the exuberance of Nellie's character at this point in the show, and it carried over to Mary Martin's performance of it. Mary Martin was so thrilled that when she sang it on stage, she performed cartwheels on the stage at every turn of "I'm in love."

Richard Rodgers : The Songs of Richard Rodgers - High Voice : Solo : 01 Songbook : 073999196955 : 0634032461 : 00740166

Richard Rodgers : The Songs of Richard Rodgers - High Voice

The most accomplished composer in the history of the American musical theatre was Richard Rodgers (1902-1979), with a professional career on Broadway that spanned more than 50 years. In an edition designed especially for singers, 45 songs have been carefully chosen from both the Rodgers & Hart and Rodgers & Hammerstein output. The accompaniments support the singer, rather than containing the melody in the piano part throughout, as in the standard sheet music editions of these songs. Most of these songs are transposed for the first time ever in this new collection. The song selection is almost the same for High Voice and Low Voice; (Soliloquy from Carousel only appears in in Low Voice, and My Lord and Master from The King and I only appears in in High Voice).

Songlist: Manhattan, No Other Love, Bewitched, Some Enchanted Evening, Climb Ev'ry Mountain, Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful?, Edelweiss, Falling In Love With Love, Hello, Young Lovers, I Could Write A Book, I Didn't Know What Time It Was, I Have Dreamed, I Wish I Were In Love Again, If I Loved You, Isn't It Romantic?, It Might As Well Be Spring, It Never Entered My Mind, The Lady is a Tramp, Love, Look Away, My Favorite Things, My Funny Valentine, My Heart Stood Still, My Lord And Master, My Romance, Nobody's Heart, Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin', People Will Say We're In Love, Something Wonderful, The Sound Of Music, The Surrey With The Fringe On Top, and more
