      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I think that Victoria Wood is one of the cleverest and funniest comedy-writers and stand-ups around. Her sketches with Julie Walters (particularly, but not exclusively) should be in the pantheon of good humour. She's one of the most generous writers, not hogging the best lines or characters and I applaud her for it. However.... and it's a big however, I have never found her songs to be at all funny or inventive. When I first heard her singing, I think it was on an Esther Rantzen programme (That's Life?), she revelled in being able to produce and develop a topical song at the drop of a hat. In my opinion, the hat should not have been dropped. To add to the poverty and predictability of her songs, they went on and on on and on on and on on and on on and on..... Victoria - give up on the songs, stick with what you do best: comedy and more comedy!

      All her best songs ore on this CD including: Baby Boom, It would never have worked, Reincarnation, Pam, Music and Movement, Alternative Tango and Barry and Freda. Plus loads more It used to be available on tape but they have stopped making them for now. I would buy this CD now if I were you as they may stop this soon as well. Some of her less interesting songs are slap bang in the middle so when like me you have a tape you have to listen to them anyway my personal favourite song is music and movement as is reminds me of me and my dislike of physical exercise
