Georgy Girl (song)
"Georgy Girl", written by Tom Springfield (music) and Jim Dale (lyrics), is the title song performed by The Seekers for the film of the same name. Across late 1966 and early 1967, the song became a No.1 Australian hit and a No.3 British hit. In the United States, it proved to be the Seekers' highest charting single, reaching No.2 on the Billboard Hot 100, prompting the Seekers' British album Come the Day to be retitled Georgy Girl for its American release.
The song is heard at both the beginning and end of the film, with markedly different lyrics (and with different lyrics again to those in the commercially released version). It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song.
The New Seekers released a version on the album We'd Like to Teach the World to Sing (1972).
In 1970, the film was adapted for a short-lived Broadway musical Georgy.
