Frank Loesser was able to use his remarkable songwriting talents to create such classic Tin Pin Alley songs as “Once in Love with Amy”, “Standing on the Corner”, and of course, “Luck Be a Lady Tonight”. His career spanned four decades, and he was responsible for crafting a number of fine musicals (including “Guys and Dolls) and songs for film and television. This website, which features some of Loesser’s music, provides a nice introduction to his work and legacy, complete with a biographical sketch and a listing of his awards and nominations. The site is rounded out by a “Fan Community” area, where visitors can talk about the late composer and also look over some related show souvenirs and products.
