Rita Moreno as Googie Gomez sings "Everything's Coming Up Roses" in the movie version of the Broadway Play, "The Ritz"

This is significant because this was my first Broadway Play - also starring Rita Moreno, Jack Weston, Jerry Stiller, F. Murray Abraham, Stephen Collins, and George Dzundza. Treat Williams replaced Stephen Collins in the movie.

Wake, Awake by F Melius Christiansen

I've been remiss in not posting this sooner. This is the McKeeport Senior High School A Capella Choir's Anthem since way before my time there, but I understand its selection was based on it being the song with which the choir had won the State of Pennsylvania Choral competition.
