Songfacts®:

  • This is another song from the 2007 film and later award winning stage musical Legally Blonde. Like the rest of the score, "Bend And Snap" was written by the husband and wife team of Laurence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin. Both contributed to the music and lyrics.

    This is a dance routine performed by Elle and her Greek chorus to and with Orfeh, who has become Elle's confidant. When Orfeh shapes up, they are joined by the Company. The bend and snap routine is said to be guaranteed to win over the vast majority of men, but not Nikos, who is the object of the next song, "There! Right There!" >>
