2. "This Nearly Was Mine" from South Pacific.
3. "Something Wonderful" from The King and I.
4. "Love, Look Away" from Flower Drum Song.
5. "The Surrey With a Fringe on Top" from Oklahoma!.
6. "Honey Bun" from South Pacific.
7. "Edelweiss" from The Sound of Music.
8. "Younger Than Springtime" from South Pacific.
9. "What's the Use of Wond'rin'" from Carousel.
10. "Ten Minutes Ago" from Cinderella.

Later days
