Love Me+Bedazzled-Dudley Moore and Peter Cook

Watched the fantastic film 'Bedazzled' again last night, starring Peter Cook and Dudley Moore.
Basically Cook plays the Devil and Dud plays a short order cook in Wimpy's. The Devil offers Dud seven wishes after a failed suicide attempt and off we go...
Great fun. Superb script which stands the test of time and repeated viewings.
Here are the two 'pop hits' which feature. The first 'Love Me' sung by Dud when he is transformed into a pop star appearing on a greta parody of 'Ready Steady Go' or some such...the second 'Bedazzled' sung by Peter Cook as the indifferent pop star who becomes the next big thing, leaving poor Dud bewlidered, forgotten and literally trampled over as yesterday's man.
If you haven't seen it, check it out...must dig out and post 'The L.S Bumble Bee' by Pete and Dud soon...
