Written for the National Student Theatre Company's production of The Big Book For Girls.
Recorded live at the Edinburgh Assembly Rooms, August 1995.
Benjamin worked as the musical director on this madcap, award-winning show. 

In rehearsalMany of the performers had never worked with musical harmonies before, but did an extremely good job. The original tunes were written by composer Nick Brace and arranged by Benjamin, who also wrote all the counter melodies. 

The hilarious lead vocal on this piece is supplied by comic genius, Natalie Walter, who never failed to bring the house down whenever she opened her mouth, as can be clearly heard on this recording.
