In many ways, the biggest challenge for Snoopy!!! may have not writing the whole thing, but rather coming up with a closing song. That's because You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown had a song that ended the show which not only was so wonderful and took on a life of its own, but put the entire production in a full perspective, the song, "Happiness." So, how in the world do you top that -- or even come close?
What's impressive is that Hackady and Grossman met the challenge. In fact, the song they wrote might even have a better-known life than "Happiness" (which is remarkable). Oddly enough, though, as terrific as the song is -- it's not known for Snoopy!!! at all. Most people probably think it's a Muppet song, since they've done it so often that it's become identified with them. The song is "Just One Person." But it's not a Muppet song, it's from Snoopy!! and ends the show.
I thought it would be proper to give the song its full due. Here's the recording from the original cast recording. I was going to embed the video of the Peanuts cartoon version, but not only do I like the cast album version, but I just figured that the original people deserved the full credit. And when I say "original," i mean it -- this is the original "original cast." Seven full years before making it to off-Broadway, the show was first staged in San Francisco, and this is the recording of that.
So, here's Don Potter as 'Snoopy,' Pamela Myers as 'Lucy," and all the rest.
