Nagasaki - Jeeves & Wooster

Here's a scene from the British tv comedy series "Jeeves & Wooster" where Bertie sings the jazz song Nagasaki written in 1928 by Harry Warren and Mort Dixon.


The clip is from episode 5 called "Hot Off the Press" from season 3.

What do you think about Hugh Laurie singing Nagasaki from Jeeves & Wooster? Is it extremely invigorating as Jeeves puts it? Tell me.

I loved this series when it was on Masterpiece Theater. Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry are just perfect as their characters.

And I like the song a lot too. Django and company have a [url=http://www.amazon.com/Nagasaki/dp/B000VY6BEO/ref=sr_1_60/102-8399135-8188910?ie=UTF8&s=dmusic&qid=1193627371&sr=1-60]nice version[/url], though not terribly danceable.

I have the DVD boxset of Jeeves & Wooster, I got all my family and friends into it now, I adore Stephen Fry & Hugh Laurie!
The song is awesome, love Jeeves' facial expressions.

Hello,
I just love this song and I'd really like to put my hands on the original sheet music, like the copy that is shown in the video. Would anybody have an idea where I could find this?
Greetings,

Francis
