“Dirt” – Sweet Smell of Success

Music: Marvin Hamlisch   Lyrics: Craig Carnelia

The last episode of TV series Dirt aired on this day in 2008.  Critics apparently thought the show about getting the “dirt” on people was dirt itself since it was cancelled, but society’s appetite for gossip remains insatiable.  This is clearly displayed in this rancorous song from a musical about a ruthless newspaper columnist in New York who practically controls the city due to his many connections.
