9. Reading Lyrics

Author: by Robert Gottlieb
Published at: Pantheon; 1st edition (November 21, 2000)
ISBN: 978-0375400810

View on Amazon

A comprehensive anthology bringing together more than one thousand of the best American and English song lyrics of the twentieth century; an extraordinary celebration of a unique art form and an indispensable reference work and history that celebrates one of the twentieth century’s most enduring and cherished legacies.

Reading Lyrics begins with the first masters of the colloquial phrase, including George M. Cohan (Give My Regards to Broadway), P.G. Wodehouse (Till the Clouds Roll By), and Irving Berlin, whose versatility and career span the period from Alexander’s Ragtime Band to Annie Get Your Gun and beyond.

The Broadway musical emerges as a distinct dramatic form in the 1920s and 1930s, its evolution propelled by a trio of lyricistsCole Porter, Ira Gershwin, and Lorenz Hartwhose explorations of the psychological and emotional nuances of falling in and out of love have lost none of their wit and sophistication.

Their songs, including Night and Day, The Man I Love, and Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered, have become standards performed and recorded by generation after generation of singers. The lure of Broadway and Hollywood and the performing genius of such artists as Al Jolson, Fred Astaire, Ethel Waters, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, and Ethel Merman inspired a remarkable array of talented writers, including Dorothy Fields (A Fine Romance, I Can’t Give You Anything but Love), Frank Loesser (Guys and Dolls), Oscar Hammerstein II (from the groundbreaking Show Boat of 1927 through his extraordinary collaboration with Richard Rodgers), Johnny Mercer, Yip Harburg, Andy Razaf, Nol Coward, and Stephen Sondheim.
