|Sondheim's "Back In Business" was sung in the "Dick Tracy" movie by Janis Siegel, of the Manhattan Transfer; backing her were Cheryl Bentyne, also of the Manhattan Transfer, and Lorraine Feather. Janis did the great vocal arrangement.
Madonna recorded a completely different song, with the same title, on her "Dick Tracy" album (separate from the official movie soundtrack release). I wonder if there's a story there.
I felt that Madonna was an ill fit for the Sondheim songs, and the Sondheim songs were an ill fit for the movie – with the exception of "Back In Business," with its high-octane period hot swing (which is how I prefer the song, as opposed to slow and slinky.)
