  1. Thanks, Lois. I wanted to emphasise the wide range of styles these two great songwriters were capable of writing in and all the different singers, from different backgrounds, who performed their work.

    Isn’t “Is That All There Is” one of the strangest songs ever written? It’s “Existentialism – The Musical.”

  2. Yes, strange is the word, and even stranger is that the Peggy Lee is one of those songs to which I know all the words. Maybe because my Dad listened to Peggy Lee a lot.

  3. “some stonkin’ good soul for the heavenly choir”

    I couldn’t put it any better. Holy Jerry and Nick, STONK for us!
