Don_Becker's current selection is:
Thoroughly Modern Millie
by Julie Andrews
A bit late for the 2 who already liked it, but I'd like to dedicate this to Boris Johnson's neighbour.

A song set in the far past, recorded far closer to the setting than now. Plummy Julie is delectable, as per the lyrics.


There are those,
I suppose,
Think we're mad
Heaven knows
The world has gone to rack and to ruin
...
What we think is chic, unique, and quite adorable
They think is odd and Sodom and Gamorrah-ble!
But the fact is
Everything today is thoroughly modern!
(Check your personality)
Everything today makes yesterday slow!
(Better face reality)
It's not insanity says Vanity Fair.
In fact, it's stylish to raise your skirts and bob your hair!
In a rumble-seat the world is so cosy, if the boy is kissable
And that tango dance they wouldn't allow, now is quite permissible
Goodbye, good-goody girl!
I'm changing, and how!
So beat the drums cause here comes thoroughly modern Millie now!
...
Have you seen the way they kiss in the movies?
(Isn't it delectable?)
Painting lips and pencil lining your brow
(Now it's quite respectable)
Goodbye, good-goody girl!
I'm changing, and how!
So beat the drums cause here comes thoroughly modern Millie now!
...
What we think is chic, unique, and quite adorable
They think is odd and Sodom and Gamorrah-ble!
But the fact is
Everything today is thoroughly modern!
(Bands are getting jazzier)
Everything today is starting to go!
(Cars are getting snazzier)
Men say it's criminal what women'll do
What they're forgetting is this is 1922!
...
Goodbye, good-goody girl!
I'm changing, and how!
I'm changing, and how!
So beat the drums cause here comes thoroughly
Hot off the press, one step ahead, jazz age
Whoopee baby, we're so thoroughly modern
Millie now!
