Haven’t heard Skyscraper before but those lyrics- oy!:lucydaze: They sound like something from Tim Rice! (Don’t shoot, Mot! Only joking.)

LOL! My initial scowl prevented me from seeing your last sentence at first :D 

Rice seems to be as divisive as Lloyd Webber. Both tend to be better received overseas than in America. I personally think Rice's work is clever, at least compared to many modern lyricists who write very heavy-handed and cliché-ridden songs.

It's easy to pick out Rice's contributions to Aladdin, especially if you're familiar with Evita, given his knack for up-tempo lyrics. (One jump, ahead of the breadline, one jump, ahead of my doom...fill me up with your heat, with your noise, with your dirt, overdo me!)

Rice's favorite lyrics of mine are from Chess. I'm also a big ABBA fan and the B's from that group did the score.

"This is the story of how the most famous and talented sitcom star of her era — and maybe of all time — failed on Broadway."

Probably because someone dimmed her bulb. I mean it's just like Lucy Ricardo wrote that.

As for the book. I'm waiting on my library to get it in to give it a spin.
