Captain Sensible - Happy Talk

Thanks to extended family member Greg Condon for alerting me to this one (indirectly) in this great mix. Hearing the refrain of Dizzee Rascal's "Dream" I thought, "This is great, but with all due respect, there's no way Dizzee Rascal wrote this." Upon learning that Dizzee had sampled Captain Sensible I thought, "A-ha! But with all due respect, there's no way Captain Sensible wrote this." (Rodgers and Hammerstein did, in 1949.)

Nice to hear our old friends The Dolly Mixture on backing vocals.

Hey Ano, just checking out Claudine's version now. It really highlights her inability to say "R"'s, but still great. ("You've got to have a dweam.") Prob the direct antecedent to the Captain's version?
