Happy Endings Ending
Yesterday, I wrote about the TV jingle that was written by the creator of Oliver! Lionel Bart for Abbey National building society, a British financial institution. It came late in his career, in 1989, and to the surprise of most everyone oddly became a big hit. Even more oddly, as I mentioned they released it as an extended single, with some rewritten words, and became a warm, affectionate, offbeat hit.
This is that extended version. The title of the song for the TV ad was a pun, about all the wonderful things you could do with a loan from Abby National, "Abby Endings." For the single, the title was flipped back with the pun removed, "Happy Endings (give yourself a pinch)."
