Abstract

“There’s something wild about you child, that’s so contagious. Let’s be outrageous. Let’s misbehave!” This exclamation from Cole Porter’s hit, Let’s Misbehave, exhibits the facetious sensuality that was typical of Porter’s music.

His music, laden with double-entendres, managed to shine anywhere he composed, from the Broadway stage to the silver screen of Hollywood.
