Shirley Temple, “America’s Sweetheart,” on the cover of the sheet music for “On the Good Ship Lollipop,” which sold over 400,000 copies in its day.
Shirley Temple, the curly-haired moppet who ruled the Depression-era box office, first sang her signature song, “On the Good Ship Lollipop,” in the 1934 movie Bright Eyes where it became a beloved, wholesome American standard.
This week, vocalist Dori Kreisz from Hungary! and composer/musician Andy Rehfeldt took that beloved, wholesome standard and rendered it brutal as all fuck.
The dubbed video, using footage from Bright Eyes, really works because of Temple’s exaggerated expressions as she sings.
If you can’t get enough of these, you can see more of Andy’s work on his YouTube Channel.
