Your showtune for October 1 is

“A Spoonful of Sugar” – Mary Poppins

Music and Lyrics: Richard & Robert Sherman

Julie Andrews, born on this day in 1935, won an Oscar playing the splendiferous nanny in the musical film based on the series of books by P.L. Travers, which became a stage musical years later.  While sandwiched in a sea of memorable tunes, her performance of this song is particularly outstanding.  Happy birthday Ms. Andrews!
