“Back from the Great Beyond” – Prettybelle

Music: Jule Styne   Lyrics: Bob Merrill

In this cheesy number from this nutty musical, a widow is visited by the ghost of her husband who boasts about being back from the great beyond.  Unfortunately, her husband is a proud bigot, but it is the Southern belle’s misguided attempt to make up for her husband’s wrongs that is truly shocking.  When Tony Yahle died on this day in 2013, maybe he had this song in his head because forty-five minutes later, a medical miracle occurred, and he came back from the great beyond.
