"New York, New York" by Liza Minnelli

Live from Radio City Music Hall in New York City, Liza Minnelli's electrifying performance of just one of her theme songs was the highlight of a program called Night of A Hundred Stars, which originally aired in March 1982 and to which I was glued for the entire evening the night it was first on.

New York, New York was written for her by the creative team of Kander and Ebb, and is the theme from Martin Scorsese's 1977 film of the same name; in fact, she can be considered their muse, since they also wrote Flora the Red Menace, Cabaret, and The Rink with her in mind.
