“You Mustn’t Be Discouraged” – Fade Out—Fade In
Music: Jule Styne Lyrics: Betty Comden & Adolph Green
You mustn’t be discouraged if you struggle with something today. Just listen to the rosy advice in this spoof of the “cheer up” number which tells us life can always get worse from this musical comedy about an untalented girl who becomes a movie star. It can be awfully surprising what happens when you fade out and fade in on a person’s life. Take for example, Bill Gates, born on this day in 1955. After the first business venture of Gates failed, he did not let himself get discouraged and went on to become a billionaire.
