“Wonderful, Wonderful Day” – Seven Brides For Seven Brothers
Music: Joel Hirschhorn, Al Kasha, & Gene de Paul Lyrics: Joel Hirschhorn, Al Kasha, & Johnny Mercer
Before Milly marries a man she barely knows, she cheeps along with other townswomen about the wonderful day ahead like a dawn chorus of birds during this song. Milly quickly grasps he’s a bit of a brute, and she has her work cut out for her. When his six equally obnoxious brothers kidnap the women they admire, the girls set out to train the men and find love along the way in this musical that would cause modern audiences to shake their heads in disbelief. Have yourself a wonderful, wonderful day today—just try not to get kidnapped.
