mp3 post.

I recently discovered that "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered" is more than just the title of a throwaway "Xander episode" of Buffy the Vampire Slayer -- it's a Rodgers and Hart song. I found this out when I saw The History Boys a few weeks ago.

In the film, a young boy played by Samuel Barnett (pictured) sings the song to his fellow classmate. It's adorable.

Samuel Barnett - "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered"

Another version plays over the end credits --

Rufus Wainwright - "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered"

While I'm on the subject of Rufus, this Mika character seems to be getting a lot of coverage lately, but no one really talks about how he's a Rufus-ripoff.

Still, "Grace Kelly" is a great song, even if it does remind me of Rufus Wainwright's debut single "April Fools."

Mika - "Grace Kelly"

As for music by straight people, I just got Lily Allen's Alright, Still in the mail yesterday and I'm obsessed with this U-Myx software. It allows you to mix a couple of Lily's songs and I can't stop messing with it.

You can listen to my mix by clicking on the play arrow:

I am afraid I am in the same bought as the others. I loved this song in the movie more than just about anything, and I would love to have the version Samuel Barnett sang., if you can. Thank you!
