The songs
21 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to add that the songs in this movie were composed by Arthur B. Rubinstein and myself, Cynthia Morrow (lyricist). We were very proud and gratified to have Roslyn Kind's beautiful voice, and the late Johnny Pate's gorgeous arrangement. Our male singer was also fabulous, and I can't remember his name. If anyone remembers it, could you write in here and let me know? Thanks.

It was great fun writing for this movie. The first song Arthur and I came up with was called, "An American Love Affair", the original proposed title for the movie. It summer up the battle of the sexes in a very amusing way, and we both loved it, but when the title was changed the song would up, as so many great songs do, on the cutting room floor. Still, I've always thought that "Love Is Easy" is a classic, and that "Sooner Or Later" was just plain fun. My voice is actually the high soprano in "Sooner Or Later", as Roslyn is an alto, and we wanted to punch up the vocal, so we did it as a trio. Good times. Cynthia Morrow
