My Friends

Album: Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street (1979)
  • songfacts ®
  • "My Friends" is the sixth song from the Steven Sondheim musical Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street, and a strange duet indeed; in the film version, which was released in the US in December 2007 and in the UK the following month, it is performed by Johnny Depp as the barber and Helena Bonham Carter as his future accomplice. Todd is singing to his razors, while Mrs Lovett is singing to him. >>
