I like "Why We Like Spelling" from Spelling Bee.
One time, Patti LuPone punched me in the face...


It was awesome.

I also like "Why We Like Spelling"

Also, one of my favorite songs is "When I First Met Him" cut from Lippa's Wild Party

"The Showbiz", a number featuring Harry Houdini and Evelyn Nesbit in Ragtime. You can actually hear this one on the "Songs From Ragtime" recording that was done in Toronto prior to the New York production. Also "He Wanted To Say" has a totally different bridge on the Toronto recording.

Is there any recording of "Too Much Love For One Heart" from Miss Saigon available?
Sheet music?

The Lady's Got Potential from Evita. Tim Rice at his finest, although I do love The Art of the Possible very much as well.

Right on Time - The Wedidng Singer
The Girl in 14G - Mille

"Pink Taffeta Sample Size 10" from Sweet Charity
"The Man I Love" from Lady Be Good
"Why Go Anywhere At All?" from The Gay Life

"Love is in the Air," cut from Forum. Cutting in favor of "Comedy Tonight" was a wise move, certainly, but it's still a lovely little song.

eta: And yes, I know it's still there under the opening to Act II, but that doesn't count.

The Man I love was cut. Interesting, because it's such a standard now.

Oh, and I totally hated the change to "Now That I've Seen Her." It so weakened the character of Ellen.

I agree with Right on Time, although both songs are good. I miss the humor that Right on Time had.
