Your showtune for February 13 is

“Fifty Percent” – Ballroom

Music: Billy Goldenberg   Lyrics: Alan Bergman & Marilyn Bergman

Queen of the Stardust Ballroom, the television film this musical was based upon, was first broadcast on this day in 1975.  The show is about a lonely widow whose lust for life is rejuvenated when she starts attending a local dance hall.  After she meets and falls in love with a married man, our heroine belts out this scorching number in which she accepts the idea of having only fifty percent of his affection.
