Your showtune for October 8 is

“Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’” – Oklahoma!

Music: Richard Rodgers   Lyrics: Oscar Hammerstein II

This bright number starts a capella, the first a capella opening to a musical ever.  Its sunny lyrics set the tone of this show about a cowboy and his cantankerous courtship of a farm girl named Laurey in the territory of Oklahoma at the dawn of statehood.  The song also paved the way for many more a capella opportunities.  On this day in 2010, a completely a capella musical entitled Perfect Harmony began previews off-Broadway.
