    My Drag!!!!! Finally found it!

    Thank you Burlesque DVD for giving me the name of a song I have seached far and low for since 2002!

    Ever since I saw Christina perform with the Pussycat dolls on MTV diary at the Roxy, I was fascinated and mesmerized with a song that unfortunatly, gave me no clues as to what it was. No lyrics, no title, no distinguishing parts except that it was clearly of the cabaret sounding nature.

    I saw it once again when the pussycat dolls were on letterman, as they started with the Pink panther theme and then this mystery song followed by Big Spender.

    I tried searching all over the net for a complete list of songs performed by the PCD but in addition to their music selection being so vast the now radio pop group made it nearly impossible for the net to distinguish the difference between the pop group and the original troupe.

    When I saw Burlesque in theaters I got ultimatly excited when i recognized the song again right before cher began to sing Welcome to Burlesque and now thanks to the DVD credits and a process of elimination I found the song!

    Its called "My Drag" by Squirrel Nut Zippers!
    Here is a youtube link...I love this song!

    Does Welcome to Burlesque sample this song? Because there are a lot of similarities at parts.

    Um i dont think so...I have listened to the instrumental and although there are clearly used some of the same instruments and that same cabaret vibe, its NOT the same song.

    I was just listening to some music from the Squirrel Nut Zippers that a friend gave me... And when i got to 'My Drag' I recognized it right away as the song being performed when Ali first goes into the Burlesque lounge. It's obviously a sample.. I love it.

    They actually worked in the movie

    In writer/director Steven Antin’s finger-snapping, eye-popping and atmospheric musical Burlesque, a time-honored tale of showbiz aspirations fulfilled – and the hallmarks of a classic form of live entertainment – get a dazzling, fun movie makeover. When it came time to create the music played by the house band in the film, Antin and music supervisor Buck Damon turned to Phillips, whose credits include composing for Comedy Central’s animated political satire “Lil’ Bush,” which ran for two seasons near the end of George W. Bush’s presidency, and Suck, a Canadian vampire spoof starring Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper and Malcolm McDowell.
