The work of Lorenz Hart and Richard Rodgers has been interpreted by a broad range of singers, from the expected (Barbra Streisand, Judy Garland, Tony Bennett) to the surprising (the Supremes, Janis Joplin, Lady Gaga). The videos on these pages give a sample of the performers who have been drawn to the team's beautifully sophisticated show tunes.

"The Lady Is a Tramp" — Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, 2011

 

"Lover" / "With a Song in My Heart" / "My Romance" — the Supremes, 1966

"Little Girl Blue" — Janis Joplin, 1969

 

"I Wish I Were in Love Again" — Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney, 1948
