Your showtune for August 12 is

“Nine People’s Favorite Thing” – [title of show]

Music and Lyrics: Jeff Bowen

The writers of this musical about two guys writing a musical began campaigning to get their show to go to Broadway in a web series which began on this day in 2007.  In this cute song, the writers express their preference that their show be nine people’s favorite thing as opposed to a hundred people’s ninth favorite thing.  It turns out, the musical must have been more than nine people’s favorite thing because the campaign worked, and the show opened on Broadway a year later.
