Listed below are links to weblogs that reference I went back and listened to the I believe in you song again [Jennifer Michael Hecht]:


The song means a lot to me, because it was a featured number in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," which i saw when I was in high school and thinking about a career in business. My father actually took the afternoon off for once in his life and bought us orchestra seats. A matinee. And the funny thing about the song is that the character (played by Robert Morse) sings it not to his girlfriend but to himself in the mirror.

Oh that explains the prop--he stays in a vanity shaped prop in the video. I like that he's singing it to himself, all makes sense now.
I'm glad your father took you. Did it help you turn away from businessing?

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
