"The Show" is the first single by the Australian singer/songwriter Lenka, produced by Stuart Brawley. It was released in December 2008 - June 2009. The song is on her first album, Lenka, released in October 2008. It was promoted as an iTunes Free Single of the Week.
The music video has Lenka sitting on a bench in a park singing her song and picking petals from a flower. She then flies to the next scene, where she is riding a bus and looking at the other people, including an old lady and a man who she notices is staring at her. She then flies to a photo shop, where she looks at a picture with her friends. There is also a scene in which she plays tennis without ever hitting the ball. The next scene is when she is riding a bicycle with grocery items. While she is riding the bike, she notices that people are dancing while she sings the second verse. Then she flies to a concert, where she sings the chorus and flies off to a restaurant, where she and the man in the bus are eating. The man notices that Lenka's food was sliced by an unseen object. She then goes to her house, in which her toothbrush brushes her teeth without her holding it, and she slowly goes to bed. She finishes by watching the TV and turning out the lights.
It was used as the soundtrack for a 2008 Old Navy commercial, as an Ugly Bettyseason 3 2008 promo, in the 2008 film Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, for the 2009 spring campaign of the Polish TV station TVN, in a 2009 commercial for the Malaysian telecommunications company TM, in a 2010 commercial for the French insurance company GMF. Samples from the song were used in DFS sofa commercials in the UK. The song was covered by Kerris Dorsey in the 2011 movie Moneyball (set in 2002) and appears on its soundtrack.
