“There’s Gotta Be Something Better Than This” from Sweet Charity (Original London Cast, 1967)
music Cy Coleman lyric Dorothy Fields
Meanwhile, Across the Pond: London Cast Recordings of Broadway Hits, Day 4
This is most certainly my favorite song in the score—and perhaps by favorite in Cy Coleman’s catalog. I find the hook in the accompaniment irresistible. All three ladies give joyous and idiosyncratic performances here (click on their names to learn more about them), and the recording is more complete than the version found on the OBCR.
