3. Hello Mrs. Beckerman!

11. Get A Bloomin' Move On! - The Italian Job (vocal)
The classic soundtrack to the cult film featuring Michael Caine and Noel Coward on top form. Quincy Jones plays with jazz, 60's pop, easy listening and funk in a mixed-up, joyful score tinged with darker moments. British ears will know "Getta Bloomin' Move On", source of the 'Self Preservation Society' lyric, while funk fans will pick out the great instrumental "Caper Time".

Thanks for sharing but the film version of "On Days Like These" is different than the one on this LP. Anybody knows where I can find it?
