Marvelous Music Monday - Marvin Hamlisch

 Today's Marvelous Music Monday is dedicated to the memory of Marvin Hamlisch

The musical world has lost a great composer this month, Marvin Hamlisch.  I have loved many of his works.  He was one of of only eleven EGOTs.  What is an EGOT?  It is someone who has won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award, plus a Pulitzer Prize winner, too.  What an accomplishment!  Part of Hamlisch's repertoire are The Way We Were, the Bond movie theme The Spy Who Loved Me, Ice Castles, A Chorus Line, Three Men and a Baby, just to name a few.   Yesterday, I featured on my Serene Sunday post, a beautiful instrumental version of "What I Did for Love," from A Chorus Line.  His last score was The Informant!, which starred Matt Damon in 2009.
