Marvin Hamlisch:

As a Composer, when you write a song, the first time you hear it, you sing it. (And that’s not one of the great thrills if you’ve ever heard my voice.) So to hear someone like Sammy Davis sing this tonight, I can only tell you, for the writer, this is why we do it, this is why we write it.

Sammy Davis Jr.

In A Chorus Line, one of the greatest musicals ever put on the stage, by a bunch of talented concerned people, there is a moment when a young man gets a permanent injury to his leg, and the line comes… someone says: “What would happen if you couldn’t dance again?”  — These ain’t stars, these are what we affectionately call GYPSIES, and this is the explanation:

 

We did what we had to do,

and I can’t regret what I did for Love”
