It’s kind of a black-comedy song so be warned that it mentions, er, violent death. Not in graphic terms but it is there.
Fuck yeah Sheldon Harnick! :)
(Best known as the lyricist of such musicals as Fiddler on the Roof and She Loves Me, Harnick occasionally also wrote music, which he did for this song. If you like it, check out the rest of the album.)
I fell in love with Kate Baldwin through her first album, feelings which were confirmed by seeing her in Finian’s Rainbow on Broadway. Thrilled she has a follow-up so soon. And what a treat not only to hear Sheldon Harnick sing on this track, but to get some non-show lyrics to the song as well.
