Am I the only one who loves "It's Hot Up Here" from Sunday? That kind of surprises me.

Oh, I love "It's Hot Up Here." It never fails to make me laugh. But it kind of pales in comparison to the brilliant dramatic songs in Sunday, in particular, "Finishing the Hat", "Sunday", "Children and Art", "Lesson #8", "We Do Not Belong Together", etc. But "It's Hot Up Here" is one of Sondheim's finest comedic songs, in my opinion.
