Boom Oo Yata-Ta-Ta

Song 20 of my personal “31 Songs”.

Not primarily a “song”, more of a performance from one of the best British comedy acts ever.

I grew up with Morecambe and Wise. I think this particular performance comes from around 1962, so my memory of the song would be of later performances. I remember having an LP that included a recording of the “song”.

Since coming across this video I’ve watched a few more M & W appearances on YouTube. They were highly respected in the show business world and some of the top stars of the day appeared on their TV show.

Over five years ago I wrote a few blog posts with the title “Stories What I wrote”* – the title was a rip-off of Morecambe and Wise, where Ernie Wise would regularly mention the plays “what I wrote”.
