I suspect many of us can relate far, far too well to the lyrics of this song, from Leonard Bernstein, Betty Comden and Adolph Green’s Wonderful Town (1953).
Performed by Richard Muenz, Dawn Upshaw, and Donna Murphy, from the brilliant 1996 compilation album Leonard Bernstein’s New York, one of my very favorite albums of recorded music ever. More selections coming up on a future ShoSat.
- Murphy’s haunting “Ain’t Got No Tears Left” is also from this album.
