Coulton's cover of Baby Got Back was then ripped off by Glee, which caused some minor controversy: https://www.wired.com/2013/01/jonathan-coulton-glee-song/ I think this wound up indirectly with a happy ending, though. The Good Wife based an episode on the controversy, which is, I assume what led to JoCo's association with the Kings, writing recap songs for Brain Dead, then the Schoolhouse Rock parodies for The Good Fight, and a deadly earworm on a Christmas episode of Evil. https://www.vulture.com/2014/01/good-wife-recap-season-5-glee-jonathan-coulton-case.html (Any TNOCS folks past or future Joco Cruisers?)
Damnit! I was formulating my own version of this joke to post when I hit the bottom of the comments. Kudos to Tom for getting there first.
When I see the multiple musical genres, orbiting around hard rock, playing guitars with drills, and the extended afterlife in Japan, I have to wonder... Were these guys _trying_ to be Spın̈al Tap?
I did not expect a connection between Right Said Fred and Doctor Who (which is where I know Bernard Cribbins from). I suppose I shouldn't be surprised, however.
It was a bad time for him to be so fallow. If he had been in better shape, and working with the right writers and producers in those years, the height of disco, he might have produced some really interesting stuff.
Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide was so crucial in the 90, pre-IMDB. (And IMDB was one of the very first massively useful and usefully searchable web sites.) I can remember cross-referencning movies to figure out the names of "Hey It's That Guys." That was Vincent Schiavelli who was in both Fast Times and Buckaroo Banzai, for example....
Was 2015 just dreadful, or is that year in a sour spot for pop-music ranking - recent enough that we remember the songs being overplayed, too recent for nostalgia to have developed? A lot of both, I'd expect.
That Beatles vs. Ray Charles matchup is a killer. At least there's almost no way either one will go past the next round.
Hildegard von Blingen should record a version. https://youtu.be/i2zpbcW-h-c?t=40
Playing the Mixolydian mode backwards returns you to your home dimension.
You can do the breaststroke fairly effectively while keeping your face above the water. So if I was swimming out to get someone and needed to keep my eyes on them while I was doing so, I would do the breaststroke. (Never trained to be a lifeguard, just thinking about what situation it would apply in.)
The Bootleg Series Volumes 1-3 was a fucking event. Hard to overstate how it dominated the conversation among my circle of friends, especially the "unearthed" songs on Volume 3, like Foot of Pride, Series of Dreams, and especially, Blind Willie McTell.
We had watch parties in the commons room of my dorm every week. 20-30 people gathering to watch the show.
From the first time I heard it, "Losing My Religion" sounded like someone arguing with either themselves or their lover over whether or not to come out publicly.
All of these early-90's Alternative videos just leave me with such a nostalgic ache for my lost and wasted youth.
That comment is a perfect representation of a third-rate comment without an edit button.
That video is a perfect representation of a third-rate candyflip of third-rate MDMA and Dancing Bear blotter acid.
