My Inspiration – Andy Anderson (HMV)



West Side Story

“Tonight. Tonight

Won’t be just any night.

Tonight there will be no morning star.

Tonight. Tonight.

I’ll see my love tonight

And for us, stars will stop where they are”

1961 – Lyrics Stephen Sondheim

Christmas Eve 1972 BBC1. Films haven’t reached this height since, I’m still looking.

•HMV’s My Inspiration is about the artists, actors and directors we love, sharing with us the lyrics and songs, poetry and dialogue that have inspired them. The journey began in 2006, when David Bowie became the first artist to take part, selecting Syd Barrett’s Gigolo Aunt as his inspiration. Since that time, many of our greatest icons and best new artists from the world of entertainment have featured.

We at the Raygun are asking the UK home entertainment trade for the films, people, or even songs, that inspired them to become part of our business.
