“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.
