Princetoniana Museum use only.

F. Scott Fitzgerald is (so far) the only person in Triangle Club's history to write lyrics for three shows (Fie! Fie! Fi-Fi!, The Evil Eye, and Safety First!). To mark Triangle’s 125th anniversary in 2016, and the 100th anniversary of the Commencement of the Class of 1917, a group of Triangle Club graduate trustees sang through the FSF songs for all three shows. They picked out a handful, arranged to have them professionally orchestrated in the style of The Jazz Age, and then arranged to have them performed by Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks at a Manhattan supper club. This video is from the May 9 /10, 2016 performance.
