Hi, btb/jjo --

1 is definitely George Gershwin; Ira the lyricist
7 could be Sigmund Romberg, but not sure (can still remember Mario Lanza singing it)

Top marks chaps ... it was only 7 that got you stumped ...
Be My Love was composed by Sammy Cahn

1. They All Laughed ... George Gershwin
2, I Get a Kick out of You ... Cole Porter
3. The Nearness of You ... Hoagy Carmichael
4. People ... Jule Styne
5. Tonight ... Leonard Bernstein
6. Over the Rainbow ... Harold Arlen
7. Be My Love ... Sammy Cahn
8. Old Devil Moon ... Burton Lane
9. Imagine ... John Lennon
10. Bridge over Troubled Water ... Paul Simon

What a pity the age of the songwriters is over ...
for my part, I have studied all the compositions
of each of the above songwriters ... what a treat!

Be My Love was composed by Nicholas Brodzsky. Sammy Cahn wrote the sappy lyrics.

For what it's worth, Audra McDonald does what she can to bring current songwriters some attention.

"7. Be My Love ... Sammy Cahn"

Now that surprised me, I am also so ancient I can remember my Dad playing a record of Mario Lanza singing it.

I would have guessed Lehar or Dostal
