That’s a decision that really pays dividends. It gives the audience what it wants, faithfully performing hits like “The Way You Do the Things You Do”, “Ain't Too Proud to Beg”, and “I'm Gonna Make You Love Me” as they were written to sung, free from the constraints of larger storytelling demands, while also artfully orchestrating their order for maximum dramatic impact as part of the overarching story.
