Goody Goody

"Goody Goody" is a 1936 popular song composed by Matty Malneck, with lyrics by Johnny Mercer.

Benny Goodman and his Orchestra (with vocalist Helen Ward) recorded the song. Frankie Lymon performed it live on television on several occasions, including in 1957 on The Ted Steele Show. He also had a hit with his recording of the song in the United States, reaching #20 that year, as well as #24 in the UK. It was released as a recording with his group the Teenagers, but was, in fact, a solo recording.

Shelley Winters's character in Curtis Harrington's 1971 thriller What's the Matter with Helen? plays the song at the end of the movie.

The song was performed by 'Wayne & Wanda' in an episode of The Muppet Show.

Chicago recorded the song on its 1995 big band album Night and Day. Their version was arranged and featured lead vocals by Bill Champlin.

A recording by the BBC Dance Orchestra was featured in the film The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep (2007).

Bobby Rydell performs the song in his live shows (Las Vegas, 2015).
