An Oldie But A Goodie

I'm not one of those people who likes to pass on memes or jokes, but this one is simply made for this board. I don't know who's responsible for it, but it made me laugh out loud it's so perfect.

Re: An Oldie But A Goodie

I saw this on Facebook a couple weeks ago and got a really big kick out of it.Somewhere in my files I have an old cartoon of a guy climbing up a hill, over to the side it says Blueberry Hil, and when he gets to the top he says "I found my drill!"

I got rid of my cable, so I don't see them anymore, but I used to get a kick out of the music references on some of the old sitcoms.  The Jeffersons - George and Weezy were going to a costume ball, Weezy was going as Cleopatra.  Florence wanted to know who she was going as. Weezy said, "Anthony and...."  Florence said "The Imperials," and started singing Tears On my Pillow.

Two good ones from Sanford and Son, the old blues 78s donated to some museum.  Then a young guy comes along and says "I want my daddy's records."   The other good one - "B.B. King gon' kill me!"

There were several good ones on the Golden Girls - one about some instance in which someone would have to like jazz.  A guy said "Dizzy Gillespie's always on at my house."  Rose said "Oh, does he like jazz?"  And something about being at the Burt Reynolds Theatre, and Sophia said "I was just about to eat a giant shrimp out of Jerry Reed's hand."  A little different, but still sorta relevant - Dorothy was putting on a talent show for a hospital, and Sophia wanted to be in it but Dorothy wouldn't let her.  "You can't sing, you can't dance, you can't be in the show.  Who do you think you are, Ricky Ricardo?"

But my all time favorite came from Newhart.  It was an episode about putting a new bell in the tower or something like that.  The two Darryls were complaining about not getting credit for something, and Larry said "NOT EVERYONE GETS TO BE SAM THE SHAM.  SOME PEOPLE JUST GOTTA BE PHAROAHS."

Re: An Oldie But A Goodie

Another good one showed up on Facebook in the last few days - There was a misunderstanding when I asked for vinyl siding.  And there's a picture of a house covered with records!!  It seems to be very popular.

I remembered another one from the Golden Girls.  Dorothy's son was a musician, and he had decided to get married. He was going to marry a black woman, but it turns out the objection was she was about 20 years older than he was.  Her mother showed up, and with one of those dismissive hand gestures said "White men.  Ever since Diana Ross started marrying them, everybody's gotta have one."

Re: An Oldie But A Goodie

I remember watching an episode of ALF (can't quite remember the exact context in which it was stated) when Alf turned to Willie and said: "You cheated, you lied, you said that you loved me."  I remember thinking what an obscure reference that was - a TV show in the late 80's making reference to a song from 1958.  And not even a top 10 song - it peaked at #15 on the Billboard charts.

Re: An Oldie But A Goodie

This is a great thread.  I'd love to add my own if I could remember one.  Keep going!

Some of the script writing in Alf was brilliant. My favorite was the Hallowe’en episode, the one night Alf could show himself to the guests at Willie’s party by applying a zipper to his fur to make it look like a costume. He entertained the guests with his Elvis impersonation, but rather than go with an upbeat number he chose ‘In The Ghetto’. Some of the guests were so overcome with emotion by his interpretation that they broke into tears. I thought it was hilarious and a stroke of genius.

Re: An Oldie But A Goodie

Here's another great one, although again, I have no idea where it came from or who created it. But I'm sure Roger Miller would approve.

You can watch every episode of the first season for free at Tubitv.com. (And no, you don't have to sign in or register to see it.)

Re: An Oldie But A Goodie

You did it right sort of, but didn't finish it.  At the bottom of the page you made, there's a link called "embed codes." If you click on that, you'll see a few different bits of code. The BBcode starts with a "url" in an open square bracket and ends with /url in a closed bracket. Make sure you pick the full image size and not the thumbnail.

If you copy and paste all those letters and numbers in the window in the Oldies Music Board, it should appear, as it does below. Hope that helps! Great cartoon, by the way.

Here's another one I liked a lot. It's not about a specific group, per se, but I love the way the math works!

Re: An Oldie But A Goodie

Roman, I agree with you, the writing on ALF was very clever and witty.  It's too bad that when they re-issued the DVDs they went cheap and didn't pay for rights to much of the music.  For example, in one scene, ALF is in the garage listening to "Stop In The Name Of Love" by the Supremes.  He is doing all the choreography: arms extended when they sing "Stop" and pretending to snap a branch in front of his chest when they sing "before you break my heart".  In the reissued version, there is some generic music playing in the background, so Alf's choreography doesn't make sense.

Another interesting aspect of the show was that throughout the show's run, almost every episode title was a song title, many from the 50's and 60's.

Thanks, I didn't pick up on that. And you're right about the music; years ago I bought the Season 2 DVD just for the Elvis episode and found that they'd cut the scene, I guess because they didn't have the rights to use 'Ghetto'.

This is the same reason it took forever for shows like WKRP in Cincinnati and The Wonder Years to get released on video. The music rights would have cost them a fortune and replacing the tunes was also expensive and many times, not very effective.

It doesn't really matter what side of the political spectrum you're on, you have to admit this is a great musical pun.

How does one paste a pic here that's on your computer and not on the internet... In other words, one that doesn't have a URL address?  I tried a copy & paste, but it's calling for a URL address.
