Looking for the longest and shortest songs ever performed live on the Late Show with David Letterman.
In Bob & Ray's soap opera parody "Mary Backstayge, Noble Wife" the characters put on a show, and during one rehearsal a musical number is played, called "In Your Hat". It's obviously an original cast recording from some obscure musical, but what? Google returns no results except for references to the Bob & Ray usage itself. The lyrics are odd and the meter is strange, and the featured male singer sings off-key several times, but its no amateur production, as it has a full orchestra and chorus. Can anyone recognize it from the lyrics below? [more inside]
