NOTES

Describing the ease and chemistry he felt writing songs with lyricist Howard Ashman, Menken described their close collaboration and mutual recognition of musical moments as "a kind of shorthand. . . . Howard would have the basic idea of the number. Then he would ask what the music might sound like." --Quoted in PEOPLE, December 16, 1991
