Chip on My Shoulder

Album: Legally Blonde (2007)
  • songfacts ®
  • This is another song from the 2007 film and later award winning stage musical Legally Blonde. Like the rest of the score, "Chip on My Shoulder" was written by the husband and wife team of Laurence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin. Both contributed to the music and lyrics.

    After reprising "Serious" with Warner, Elle and Emmett Forrest perform this peripatetic duet. Emmett is the one with a chip on his shoulder, and he advises Elle to develop one too. They are joined by a Greek chorus, and the scene finishes with Emmett singing solo. >>
