“Hurry! It’s Lovely Up Here!” – On a Clear Day You Can See Forever

Music: Burton Lane   Lyrics: Alan Jay Lerner

Spring usually begins around this time of year, though sometimes the flowers take a while to catch up.  In this delightful number from a musical about past lives, the slightly clairvoyant Daisy sings to various flower buds to get them to grow.  Maybe if you sing to the plants in your neighborhood today, the flora and fauna will bloom that much quicker.

“Look to the Rainbow” – Finian’s Rainbow

Music: Burton Lane   Lyrics: E.Y. Harburg

In this musical fantasy with Irish roots set in the fictional Rainbow Valley, Missitucky, Sharon sings this charmer about how her father follows his dreams.  NYC hot spot the Rainbow Room first opened on this day in 1934 and still stands, an official landmark of the city.  For unparalleled entertainment today, look to either rainbow.
