“Too Good To Be Bad” – The Goodbye Girl

Music: Marvin Hamlisch   Lyrics: David Zippel

McDonald’s opened the Big Mac Museum on this day in 2007, a restaurant named after the fast food chain’s famous sandwich that is just too good to be bad, or perhaps it’s the other way around.  It certainly is for struggling dancer Paula in this musical based on the film of the same name.  Decadence is in abundance in this song where she represents an unhealthy food on a nutrition show, but it is a thankless job the unlucky woman must take in order to earn a living for her and her daughter.
