    I liked YOU'RE A SPECIAL PART OF ME when it was first released. It was actually amongst the first singles I ever bought. But now I think it is somewhat boring and shouldn't have been the first single.

    That may or may not be the instance that I'm thinking of. As I recall, the story I read had the two of them singing the song while reading the words off a lyric sheet.

    It seems like she revamped the show a couple of times. When it originally opened in 1978, she had the big pink shoe from which she sang TO LOVE AGAIN. She was also doing a bunch of songs from THE WIZ...
