I've had renewed enthusiasm for Bugsy Malone this week after going to Itchy Feet (a touring clubnight that plays soul, funk, rock n roll, swing, blues) where they ended the night with 'You Give A Little Love'. Cue ridiculously enthusiastic jiving on my part as soon as I recognised those first plinky piano chords from all of those Bugsy marathons when I was little and since then the soundtrack has been on repeat. So here's the last scene from the film-probably one of the most feelgood scenes in a film, like, ever. A bold statement but if this doesn't make you feel all smiley and happy on this fine Saturday, I don't know what will. Plus Bugsy Malone and weekends go together like cheese and pickle.
On a side note I highly recommend Itchy Feet to anyone who enjoys dancing to Twist and Shout, Preacher Man, Brown Sugar, Lola.. Everybody there was so into the music and track after track was perfection so that staying inside and sweatily dancing instead of going outside for air seemed a justifed trade-off.
