Since I was sick, Mom and I read Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens.
Today, I got to watch Oliver! directed by Carol Reed. It was different from the book but I enjoyed it.
I noticed that Horrible Histories borrowed the tune from "Food Glorious Food" for the song, "Work Terrible Work".
Here are clips of the two songs:
"Food Glorious Food" from Oliver!
"Work Terrible Work" from Horrible Histories
This song about Charles Dickens on Horrible Histories reminded my Mom of "This Charming Man" by The Smiths.

I also noticed that Horrible Histories borrowed the tune from "Empire State of Mind" by JAY Z and Alicia Keys for "It's A New World".

Happy Thanksgiving to my friends in the USA!
