This songbook features nine selections from the classic Broadway musical by E. Y. Harburg and Burton Lane, arranged for piano/vocal/chords. Few Broadway musicals have produced more standards than Finian's Rainbow. A masterful combination of political satire, social commentary, and whimsical charm, this enchanting score has survived the test of time. Yip Harburg's immortal lyrics sum it up: “I've an elegant legacy waitin' for ye: 'Tis a rhyme for your lips and a song for your heart.” Titles: How Are Things in Glocca Morra? • Look to the Rainbow • Old Devil Moon • Something Sort of Grandish • If This Isn't Love • Necessity • That Great Come-and-Get-It Day • The Begat • When I'm Not Near the Girl I Love.
