And now, in the category Giving Thanks (#4), name that song...

Oh, oh, you've been good to me
You made me glad
When I was blue
And eternally I'll always be
In love with you
And all I gotta do
Is...
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

BUZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!


"Thank You Girl" is one of the more obscure early Beatles songs. Neither Lennon nor McCartney were pleased with how it turned out. According to Lennon, it was "one of our efforts at writing a single that didn't work. So it became a B-side or an album track." (It actually ended up being both.) McCartney agreed calling it "a bit of a hack song, but all good practice." He had a point. The next song they wrote was "She Loves You" which would become the top selling single of the decade.

And now, in the category Giving Thanks (#5), name that song...

That's the nicest thing that anyone's ever done for me
I may sound Double-Dutch
But my delight is such
I feel as if a losing war's been won for me

And if I had a flag I'd hang my flag out
To add a sort of final victory touch
But since I left my flag at home
I'll simply have to say...

I think the title is "Thank You Very Much," from Oliver!

Winner! Winner! Half Point Dinner!


The movie "Scrooge" (1970) was obviously meant to follow in the footsteps of the Best Picture winning"Oliver!" (1968). It didn't succeed although, being a Christmas movie, your much more likely to see "Scrooge" in a given year compared to the now mostly forgotten "Oliver!". Critics actually liked the film but pointed out that the songs were dull and forgettable (not good for a musical).

The one exception to this consensus was the show stopper "Thank You Very Much" sung in the Christmas-yet-to-come segment. Like "Ding Dong the Witch is Dead", it's an odd song that celebrates someone's death, complete with people dancing on Scrooge's coffin. It does, however, have a reprise at the film's end with the gratitude now being expressed for the reformed miser's Christmas generosity.

It may be a bit nit picky to point out that I agree with ThatDonGuy on "Thank you very much" but I thought it is from Scrooge. (Nit picky since with the sound off I would be hard pressed to tell the difference between the dreary depressing world of Oliver vs that of Scrooge.)

Especially since I would also argue this is more Christmas than Thanksgiving....but again, the Black Friday store sales would suggest that too is a blurred line these days


EDIT: answer posted as I was typing my reply. Sorry.

I didn't know how much longer
I could go on

Watching you take
The respect out of me
Watching you make
A total wreck out of me

That big diesel motor
Is a-playin' my song...
