    I was reading a post on the Chat Board and they were talking about a song called 'When'. We could name some songs that have a one word title, like When.

    Hi Kids, Good idea, GB

    I suppose the ultimate one word title (at least the longest) is from Mary Poppins. And
    we all know that title. Written by the Sherman Brothers.

    Exodus, Oscar winning song by Ernest Gold. He was married to soprano Marnie Nixon.

    Bill from Showboat, by Jerome Kern
    "Who" from the musical Sunny, also by Kern. Judy Garland sings it on Youtube in the
    movie "Till The Clouds Roll By".

    Summertime from Porgy and Bess by George Gershwin and his lovely wife Ira.
    "America" AKA" My Country Tis of Thee." Same tune as God Save the King. Pretty
    ironic since we fought two wars with England.

    Rock
