“Ya Got Trouble” – The Music Man

Music and Lyrics: Meredith Wilson

Harold Hill demonstrates how a pool table will bring nothing but trouble to a bunch of gullible townspeople during this number from this musical slice of Americana.  Unfortunately, Harold Hill is nothing but a hustler posing as a music professor, but he gets his foot caught in the door when he falls for the peppery town librarian.  When The Hustler was released on this day in 1961, the whole country had trouble since the film about a pool shark was so popular, the interest in pool halls skyrocketed.
