Dizzee Rascal and Lily Allen Resurrect Bugsy Malone, aka A Moment from My Childhood

Posted by on Fri, Aug 29, 2008 at 1:30 PM

So, I was talking to my good friend A to Z in St. Louis about how I wish I was a black British guy so I could be a Grime MC. She said she wanted to be British so she could be Lily Allen. Discussion quickly moved to Allen being on a song on Rascal's latest.

Dizzee Rascal and Lily Allen - "Wanna Be"

I listened, and my jaw hit the floor. This song cribs its entire melody from a random song from the forgotten 1976 movie musical Bugsy Malone, starring preteen Scott Baio and Jodie Foster. In the movie, kids play roaring '20s gangsters, break into musical numbers, and shoot at each other with tommy guns loaded with raw biscuit dough. It's insane.

Oh God I am about to die of nostalgia.
