In honor of our current production, ​Ken Ludwig’s The Game’s Afoot, the show’s cast and artistic team along with the Lyric Stage staff compiled a Spotify playlist of songs that remind us of the show. Here are some of our favorites:

Cheek to Cheek – Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong

“Oh I love to climb to mountain

And reach the highest peak

But it doesn’t thrill me half as much

As dancing cheek to cheek”


The Christmas Waltz – Laufey (originally sung by Frank Sinatra)

It’s that time of year

When the world falls in love”


“Murder” He Says – Tori Amos (originally sung by Betty Hutton)

“He says, murder, he says, every time we kiss

He says, murder, he says, keep it up like this

He says, murder, he says, in that impossible tone

We’ll bring on nobody’s murder

But his own”


The Devil’s Gonna Git You – Bessie Smith

“Devil’s gonna git you

Oh, the devil’s gonna git you

Man, just as sure as you’s born”


Everytime We Say Goodbye  – Ella Fitzgerald and Chet Baker

“There’s no love song finer, but how strange the change 

from major to Minor

Everytime we say goodbye”
