Each day, the Bbox team trolls YouTube for the hot clip—sometimes it's a brand-new moment and sometimes it's a throwback to an oldie but goodie. No matter what praise hands are shot up, pearls are clutched and the repeat button is hit.

"Where Do I Go" from Hair (Galt MacDermot, Gavin Creel and James Rado)

Ulterior Motives: December 18th is the happy hippie birthday of Broadway composer Galt MacDermot. The Grammy and Drama Desk Award winner and Songwriter's Hall of Fame inductee composed the music for the Broadway musicals Two Gentlemen of Verona, Hair and three some would say Broadway flops Dude, The Human Comedy and Via Galactica. Those aside, Galt's music also appeared in Patti LuPone's Matters of the Heart and Summer.

Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: We found quite a treasure of a hot clip of the day! During the critically acclaimed Tony Award winning revival, the production's Claude, Tony and Olivier Award winner Gavin Creel dueted with the original Broadway production's Claude, the show's co-lyricist and co-bookwriter with Gerome Ragni, James Rado with Galt himself on the piano! What a special collaboration this was. Our ultimate moment was when Gavin and James sang the lyrics back and forth to one another from 0:58 - 1:09.
