Yes, it's terribly simple. The good guys are always stalwart and true, the bad guys are easily distinguished by their pointy horns or black hats, and, uh, we always defeat them and save the day. No one ever dies, and everybody lives happily ever after.

Buffista Music III: The Search for Bach  

There's a lady plays her fav'rite records/On the jukebox ev'ry day/All day long she plays the same old songs/And she believes the things that they say/She sings along with all the saddest songs/And she believes the stories are real/She lets the music dictate the way that she feels.

And you ask yourself, How did I get here?

This is not my beautiful thread! This is not my beautiful wife!

Whoo-hoo! Will look forward to our forthcoming thread, "The Undiscovered Funky."

I don't know what my obsession with the use of the word "funk" in the title of threads is, either.

Also, Newsradio is totally on-topic for the Music thread, because of the run of Season 2 episodes that are named after Led Zep albums for no reason other than that they liked 'em. Homicide basically reinvented the musical montage sequence for the better, and uh, Buffy's theme song got covered by the Breeders!

You know who doesn't rock? Those losers over in (checks card) Shelbyville. They don't know how to rock in Shelbyville!

Do you have Funkentelechy vs. the Placebo Syndrome? If not I must get you a copy.

Completely. In addition to Zep they used "Shaft" twice (Complaint Box and the one with the Big Bonus and the Shaft). Jimmy's campaign theme song was "Life's Been Good". "Slow Ride" brought him out of his coma. He was named after the Beastie Boys tune. "Horse with No Name" was a recurring joke, too. I don't know if they just thought it was funny, or if Dave really dug it and they thought that was funny, or if it was an inside joke (Phil Hartman did the cover for America's greatest hits.) Vicki Lewis had primarily done musical theater pre-Newsradio. And of course there was Chock. We're gettin' the band back together!

Chock Full O' Notes!

I had forgotten that Jimmy James is the only major character in television history to be named after a Beastie Boys song.

And of course Phil Hartman played the piano on multiple episodes, including the one where he tries to become a Mark Russell-type musical political commentator, and the talent show episode, one of my favorites ("The Great Throwdini!"), in which he and Vicki Lewis sing "Makin' Whoopee."

And no, I do not have that, and would love a copy!
