“Surprise” – Young Frankenstein

Music and Lyrics: Mel Brooks

Julie Andrews surprised everyone when she publicly declined a Tony Award nomination on this day in 1996 due to the rest of her show* being overlooked.  The show was not this musical based on Mel Brooks’ hit comedy flick, but this giddy number about such unexpected moments proves how lovely a surprise can be… or not.  (*The show was Victor/Victoria, featured on the 5th of this month)
