A more familiar tune from the musical “Guys and Dolls”, this song has many possibilites for fun choreography. The tune is catchy and upbeat and needs a bright animated vocal sound to keep the energy throughout the piece. Diction will have to be exaggerated as well. The vocal parts are not difficult and are suited for any aged choir. The arrangement is very similar to the original Broadway version, where a solo or small group sings the melody line, and the chorus echoes in harmony. The coda section has half steps that may need work to stay in tune. The extra instrumental parts that are available will help fill out the accompaniment, and add excitement to the piece. The TTBB arrangement is very nice. This is a song where your men can shine!
