In Memoriam: Marvin Hamlisch

When people in the industry or the awards circuit talk about the the EGOT they are speaking about people who have won an (E)mmy, (G)rammy, (O)scar, and (T)ony.  30 Rock recently spoofed the concept of awards, and this honor, but winning every single one of these trophies is incredibly rare.  Marvin Hamlisch is one of seven people to have this honor, and I am sad to say that he passed away today at age 68.  Marvin was an accomplished composer of film, television and stage, and known for his work with A Chorus Line, and the film They Way We Were.  Here are some of his most famous musical compositions and songs below.  Your music will be missed.
