An American in Paris is filled with wonderful songs written by George and Ira Gershwin. What is your favorite George Gershwin song? Neal Gabler votes for “Summertime.”

    How do you chose from such a wonderful songbook? My all time favorite is “Someone To Watch Over Me” from “Oh Kay!” I crewed that show in regional theatre 25 years ago and I still sing all the songs. From Porgy, it’s “My Man’s Gone Now.” And from “Girl Crazy” there are two. “But Not For Me” and “I Got Rhythm.”

    Our Love is Here to Stay… it is the ultimate love song, and even though it was written before I was born, it was my wedding song 20 years ago and still resonates today!
