Many people have heard of the musical Me and My Girl, but don’t know a whole lot about it.
Well, this theatre classic includes many songs you’re bound to know!
The Lambeth Walk
Named after Lambeth Walk, a street in London famous for its street markets, this song featured in the musical from the very beginning. The iconic dance we all associate with it now was made famous by Lupino Lane who played Bill Snibson in the show.
The Sun Has Got His Hat On
Me any My Girl has undergone many re-writes during it’s time and The Sun Has Got His Hat On first appeared in the musical in 1985, although it originally dates from the same era as the show, first being performed in 1932 and proving a favourite for dances all around the country.
Leaning on a Lamp-post
The best known rendition of this song has to be by George Formby, who originally performed it in the comedy film Feather Your Nest in 1937. Proving an iconic song of the 1930s, it made it’s way into Me and My Girl during the 1985 re-write of the show.
Me and My Girl
OK, it’s probably not a surprise, but the crooner favourite Me and My Girl comes from the musical by the same name. Another dance hall classic, the title song sums up the show perfectly and is sure to be a song to get your toes tapping.
Make sure you don’t miss this iconic musical. Shazam Theatre Company present the laugh-out-loud, heart-warming tale at Aberdeen Arts Centre from 14th-16th June
