March Monikers: “Doctor Dolittle”

March 2012 at Musical Cyberspace is all about songs with people’s names in the title.

Time for a bit of fun. Doctor Dolittle has been a favourite movie musical of mine since I was a kid and I was thrilled when it was released on DVD and saddened that the stage show didn’t have greater success. This particular song, by Leslie Bricusse like all the rest, is a sweet and whimsical appreciation of the eccentric doctor-cum-vet, John Dolittle, with a number of puns and rhymes based on animals, their features and the sounds they make. There’s not much else to it, but it brings a smile to my face every time I listen to it.
