24 Songs for Valentine's Day: Taylor, The Latte Boy

Man, at 7am I can think of one thing that is more than often necessary: COFFEE. Sure, the Manhattan Transfer sing of their love for el cafe in "Java Jive," but since last I checked South American beans don't celebrate Valentine's Day, so how about we go with a little more of the human touch?

"Taylor, The Latte Boy"
Kristin Chenoweth
As I Am
(Sony Classical, 2005)

Chenoweth, best known perhaps for her role as Glinda in the original Broadway cast of the musical Wicked, is halfway to the fourway milestone Barbra Streisand so famously holds (Tony, Oscar, Emmy, and Grammy), with a Tony Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Musical (You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown) and, most recently, a sentimental (if not undeserving) Emmy for the by then already canceled Pushing Daisies. She is set to reprise her role as a boozing alumna this spring on Fox's musical phenomenon American I... sorry, Glee.
