I Love to Rhyme: The Lyrics of Ira Gershwin 23 March

Ira Gershwin

In this episode, Alan Farley and Gershwin biographer Philip Furia conclude their look at "The Firebrand of Florence" and consider the film musical "The Shocking Miss Pilgrim," for which Ira wrote lyrics to previously unused music by his late brother George.





From The Firebrand of Florence:

Night Music and Tarantella

A Rhyme for Angela

The World Is Full of Villains

You Have to Do What You Do Do

Love Is My Enemy


From The Shocking Miss Pilgrim:

Changing My Tune

Stand Up and Fight

Aren't You Kinda Glad We Did?

The Back Bay Polka

For You, For Me, For Evermore
