"The Entertainer" by Marvin Hamlisch.

OK, more one-hit wonders: Even though this American composer has won Emmys, Grammys, Oscars, Tonys, Golden Globes and Pulitzers, his ONLY hit as a performing artist came in '74 with his cover of a 1902 Scott Joplin piano rag as part of his score for "The Sting" ('73). #3 Pop; #1 Easy Listening. #10 on RIAA's "Songs Of The Century". Artist? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "Let's Face The Music And Dance". Doggone it, they just don't make 'em like that anymore!
