"Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush" is a single by Traffic.[1] It is the title song to the film Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush, and features all four members of Traffic singing a joint lead, though the bridge and parts of the chorus have Steve Winwood singing unaccompanied. The single uses an edited version of the song, with the intro removed. When released in late 1967, the single cracked the UK Top 10.[2] Footage of the band acting out the song was commissioned by The Beatles for possible inclusion in the film Magical Mystery Tour but was not used in the final edit.[3] It is now included in the special features of the 2012 DVD/Blu-ray edition of the film.
