Internal jukebox update
I can't make it stop... I've thought about lobotomising myself with my umbrella... someone help...
On my internal jukebox today:
The theme tune to kids TV gameshow Fun House(you know, the one starring Pat Sharp's mullet and "the twins"), mashed up with pieces of the theme to B.J. and the Bear, and climaxing with long-forgotten crappy Seventies cartoon travety Baggy Pants and the Nitwits.
My god, I must really hate myself...
Fun House... it's a whole lot of fun, prizes to be won, It's a real crazy show where anything can go. Fun House... it's a quiz, it's a race, a real wacky place, Use your body and your brain if you wanna play the game!
Da da da da he's goin' everywhere, He's B.J. McKay and his best friend Bear.
No it's BaggyPants and the... NitWits.
Incidentally, but not entirely interestingly, I've just noticed that the tune and lyrics to top sitcom Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere "bear" suspicious similarities to the themetune to BJ and the Bear...
B.J. and the Bear (music by Glen A. Larson)
Hey there where ya goin', Not exactly knowin' Who says you have to call just one place home. He's goin' everywhere, He's B.J. McKay and his best friend Bear. He just keeps on movin', Ladies keep improvin' Every day is better than the last.
New dreams and better scenes, And best of all I don't pay property tax. Rollin' down to Dallas, My wheels providin' my palace, Off to New Orleans or who knows where. Places new and ladies, too, I'm B.J. McKay and this is my best friend Bear.
He's goin' everywhere, He's B.J. McKay and his best friend Bear. He just keeps on movin', Ladies keep improvin' Every day is better than the last. Etc.
Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere (music by Peter Kay)
Don't know where we're going, Got no way of knowing, Driving on the road to nowhere
Sponging for a living, Checking out the women, Riding on the road to nowhere
And we don't take shit from anyone, The only the thing we wanna do is have some fun
