Selected lyrics by Cole Porter( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cole Porter possessed to a singular degree the art of expressing depth through apparent frivolity. The effervescent wit and technical bravura of his songs are matched by their unguarded revelations of feeling. Of the masters of 20th-century American songwriting, Porter was one of the few who wrote both music and lyrics, and, even in the absence of his melodies, his words distill an unmistakable mixture of poignancy and wit that marks him as a genius of light verse. Selected from over eight hundred songs, here are Porter's finest flights of invention, lyrics that are an indelible part of 20th-century culture: "Let's Do It," "Love for Sale," "I Get a Kick Out of You," "Anything Goes," "In the Still of the Night," "I Concentrate on You," and dozens more."--Jacket

The unpublished Cole Porter by Cole Porter( )

5 editions published between 1975 and 2003 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Cole Porter died in 1964, he left a treasury of unpublished songs. From it, Robert Kimball, edited of Cole, has selected 23 of the best. All of them are signed with that magical phrase that spelled show business success for over 30 years and added a new kind of sophistication to the American musical theater: Words and music by Cole Porter. Most of these songs were written for specific stage and film musicals and were dropped only because they didn't fit a changed story line or a particular performer's talents. Porter was so prolific, however, that he could readily compose new ones that did and put the unused songs aside for another day. That day has happily arrived and The Unpublished Cole Porter presents almost two dozen songs that will add immensely to the reputation of perhaps the finest of all show music composers as well as to the enjoyment of all who play and sing them"--Provided by publisher
The complete lyrics of Johnny Mercer by Johnny Mercer( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Johnny Mercer's early songs became staples of the big band era and were regularly featured in the musicals of early Hollywood. With his collaborators, who included Richard A.

"During a career of more than four decades, Mercer was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Song an astonishing eighteen times, and won four: for his lyrics to "On the Atchison, Topeka, and the Santa Fe" (music by Warren), "In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening" (music by Carmichael), and "Moon River" and "Days of Wine and Roses" (music for both by Henry Mancini)."--Jacket
