Ok, I have to base my opinions on my experience in the production I was in (1962 version)

You're the Top - Eh, ok. Clever lyrics, but that's about it.
Friendship - Most entertaining to watch. IMO, would be fun to do in a school talent show
I Get a Kick Out of You - Always gets stuck in my head, don't know why. Not that spectacular of a job.
Anything Goes - Catchy tune, clever lyrics, all-around great song.
Let's Misbehave - Eh, not my favorite.
Blow Gabriel Blow - Fun song to perform; there was so much energy on stage. Now I have a hard time just sitting and listening without getting up and dancing around to it.
Take Me Back to Manhattan - Love that song. Fun to sing, fun to dance.


you reall have shittty taste. this is COLE PORTER. al lhis songs are brilliant.

you probably like Spring Awakening and Wicked.

salome.. although i agree with you..
(i love cole porter too)

but just because one girl didnt like a few of his songs doesnt mean she has shitty taste. plus, the way her school performed it could of had something to do with how much she likes the song...

but plus, im sure ive seen you say that you didnt like porters "heaven hop" song on some forum..

and i happen to love that song.. but im sure all of our other musical theatre tastes are the same...

anyhoo... thanks salome tho for getting the cole porter love out there :)

I wasn't comparing Cole Porter to Spring Awakening or Wicked. I was comparing Cole Porter to Cole Porter. I like Cole Porter, but I just like some of his songs better than others.

I also am not a huge fan of Porter and find it comical that somebody would say that "...his music is as relevant now as it was then." His music is anything but timeless, it is very defined.

As for Reno's best song, I'm fond of the title song, but only because the tapping is awesome.

wrong..his music although it harkes to the 20-50s is timeless in its themes its words its music.

Everytime we Say Goodbye is as emotionally relevant now as it was in 1941.

Anything Goes the song means even more now than it ever did in 1934.

there is a reason Porter's songs are the most recorded of any other broadway writer in history.

and i'd really like to know how you come to the conclusion. how many of Porters 800 plus songs do you actually know???

Everytime we say goodbye is my favorite Cole Porter song.
Although I disagree about the SA and wicked comment, I completely agree with what you said Salome.

I think my favourites may be :
I get a kick out of you (I love the Elaine Paige's version)
and
You're the top (Come on! Cole Porter is a genius! Look at these lyrics!)

If you love Cole porter you need to hear Out of This Worlf,DuBarry was a Lady,Can Can and 50 million Frenchmen...some of his greatest songs come from those shows.

as for Paige I cant stand her. and she sings porter like a bull in a china shoppe. LOL
