Where Do You Go To My Lovely

The waltz in this scene had been shot using the The Blue Danube for playback. I felt this wasn’t the right track as it was supposedly the wedding song of one of the characters (a 60 year old Teddy Boy). My 2 suggestions were Pete Sarstedt’s ‘Where Do You Go To’ and Tom Jones’s ‘What’s New Pussycat’. The Director, Richard Loncraine, mumbled ‘I fucking hate Tom Jones’…so I recorded this track instead, to the exact tempo of The Blue Danube. As usual, the Director was right.

original track – no dialogue
