Musical Interlude: Neal Hefti - The Odd Couple

Rounding out this impromptu trilogy of "tunes I didn't know had lyrics", here's a tune I knew as the theme from that old 70s sitcom with Jack Klugman and Tony Randall which I watched as a little kid.


I didn't find out the show was based on a play by Neil Simon until sometime in the mid-80s, when a friend's school was staging the play and they were auditioning.  I have no idea whether or not they got a part, we'd probably lost touch after that.  We weren't really that close.

That should do it for this year.  Join me after New Years Eve when I break out the New Years Resolutions and perhaps a more... modern... playlist.
