This episode contains three different songs form classic Broadway musicals. At the start of the episode, the song "I Enjoy Being A Girl" from Flower Drum Song plays as Midge walks down the street and into the department store. The morning after Midge bombs onstage, she goes back to work to the strains of "Life Upon the Wicked Stage (Ain't Never What a Girl Supposes)" from Show Boat. And as Joel is sitting in the audience of The Music Man, that show's song "Ya Got Trouble" plays over the ending scene and the end credits. See more
