Description

(MIXED). Kay Swift (1897-1993) was the first woman to write the score to a hit Broadway musical, the 1930 show Fine and Dandy . Her three most enduring songs are "Fine and Dandy," "Can This Be Love?" and "Can't We Be Friends?" Although she is known for her close association with George Gershwin, her own musical talent was considerable and her contributions to American music of the twentieth century are significant. Her music, written over seven decades, has an unusually broad range: Broadway scores, ballets, chamber music, art songs, popular songs, commercial jingles, and songs for children. This first-ever Kay Swift songbook allows singers and pianists to explore her music and perform it for new audiences. Songs include: Calliope * Can This Be Love? * Can't We Be Friends? * Etiquette * Fine and Dandy * Fine and Dandy (Concert Paraphrase) * I'll Hit a New High * Jig-Hop * Let's Go Eat Worms in the Garden * Nobody Breaks My Heart * Once You Find Your Guy * One Last Look * Rich or Poor * Sagebrush Lullaby * Sawing a Woman in Half * Starting at the Bottom * Up Among the Chimney Pots * Whistling in the Dark.
