I Got Rhythm by George and Ira Gershwin (1928), arr. by Dave Wolpe; originated as a slow number in the Gershwins' 1928 flop, "Treasure Girl," which closed on Broadway after 68 performances; its familiar jauntily upbeat version in "Girl Crazy" (1930) featured 23-year-old Ethel Merman making her Broadway debut. It was also featured in "Crazy for You," the 1992 Broadway Tony Award-winner that was loosely based on "Girl Crazy."
