And Happy Afternoon to Andy and Procedura!
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:13am Dave B:

And I'll Punch The Man Who Says I'm Not!

HAHAHAHA
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:14am Andy in Berlin:

Kee-rist - that last song just reminded me of that song on the Odd Couple that Felix wrote, Happy And Peppy And Ready For Love. You didn't by any chance get that one did you?
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:14am Richard from Venezuela:

Good Morning Meghan and all the listeners.
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:16am Andy in Berlin:

Whoa! Big international crowd here. What time is it in Venezuela?

  Thu. 1/13/11 6:29am Dave B:

So, Meghan - what songs were you happy to omit?
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:31am Meghan:

I was happy to not even consider Don't Worry, Be Happy! At the height of that song I was in the carribean and it was everywhere. I hate that song from that experience alone.... Every shirt, every radio was playing it.....
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:33am Dave B:

ha ha!

Now I'll have that whistling part in my head all day!
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:35am procedura:

here, in belgrade, we have this really cool jazz/fusion musician called Rambo Amadeus. His cover of infamous song is called "Don't Happy, Be Worry!"
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:36am Meghan:

With a name like Rambo Amadeus..... I would have to hear that!
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:37am Dave B:

@Procedura

http://www.ramboamadeus.com/

Is that him?
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:37am procedura:

here it is >>> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxz0jJz0aZM
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:37am procedura:

@ Dave B

yep
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:38am Andy in Berlin:

Somehow I always associated that song with the whole Reagan era. I just used to hate it.
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:39am Dave B:

Holy Smokes! Me Likeee!!!

Don't Happy, Be Worry!
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:40am Dave B:

Jumbo set this one is!
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:41am Meghan:

Holy crap! That is AWESOME! Okay.... searching for something to cut to get this in!
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:47am procedura:

I like to deal with snow :))
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:52am Dave B:

Hey - re: The Golden Fest... 'FMU post states 15th and 16th, but if you follow the link to the fest page it states the 14th and 15th....
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:53am Meghan:

Yes, it's the 14th and 15th...... I'll let someone know about that mistake!
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:56am Dave B:

Friday might work for me, I keep hearing about it, and keep missing it...
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:58am Elwyn:

Hey Everyone!

I hope everyone is happy!
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:58am Meghan:

oh you should go. Saturday is the big night. I have heard in the past that Gogol Bordello have shown up and played. They aren't touring right now.......
  Thu. 1/13/11 6:58am Meghan:

There he is! Hope you got to hear the Replacements!
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:00am Elwyn:

Missed it barely. :-(

Wow. I own the last three songs.
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:02am Dave B:

I'd guess Balkan Beat Box would/might show too. They are Brooklyn locals...

Hey Elwyn!
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:03am Meghan:

They definitely might! It's one of those kind of events where people show up and jam with who ever is on stage. Seriously, it's a must go!
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:05am Dave B:

Done. Friday for me though. Have a show to catch in R.I. on Saturday
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:08am Elwyn:

Hey Dave!

I saved you this special fruit cup. It's made up of fruits that look like celebrities!
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:09am eric:

Hi all. Present and accounted for. Have been listening but just now making it to the chat.
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:10am Andy in Berlin:

@ Elwyn - I want the banana that looks like Nixon
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:14am Meghan:

Happy Morning Eric!
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:14am Dave B:

@Elwyn - Like Charles Nelson Riley, Rip Taylor and Paul Lynde?
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:15am Dave B:

neverrmind - they're fruity celebrities
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:17am Meghan:

*giggles* silly Dave...... How come I only get cheesy '70's shows for fruity celebrities.... or '70's game shows.....
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:18am Elwyn:

@Andy: I heard Dave likes Dick. ;-)

@Dave: Onlu A-grade celebrities and B-graders that Phil Spector shot.
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:19am Andy in Berlin:

@ Meghan - that's what you get for playing The Partridge Family
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:19am Andy in Berlin:

@ Elwyn - you don't have to like dick to like Dick
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:20am Dave B:

Dick Nixon before he dicks you....

And this Altered Images songs sends me back...
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:21am Meghan:

@ Andy- I know.... it is isn't it.....

@ Dave- Yep, that song always makes me instantly happy
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:22am Andy in Berlin:

@ Dave - I do and he did
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:23am Dave B:

@Elwyn - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPZ9kidioi8#t=0m08s
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:34am Dave B:

Did the accu-playlist belly up?
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:35am Meghan:

no it was me..... oops!
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:35am Andy in Berlin:

As Michael Shelley likes to say this is another song that you just can't kill regardless of who covers it.
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:38am Elwyn:

@Dave: Classic scene.

@Meghan: Kate = fiesty faker
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:38am Elwyn:

Shiny happy person:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1u0fL5DFGNY
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:39am Parq:

Totally agree with you about the Buzzcocks. That "Happy" track is perfect.
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:39am Dave B:

The original "Happy Feet" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnksquL557s
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:40am cory:

  Thu. 1/13/11 7:41am Andy in Berlin:

Thank you for making my day by playing this!
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:42am Meghan:

Welcome back home Cory! That is a plus!

@Elwyn- think that is one of the reasons why I will always be a feisty faker!
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:45am Dave B:

hahaha

Google "feisty faker" - the discussion from June is the top hit!
  Thu. 1/13/11 7:46am Meghan:

  Thu. 1/13/11 8:08am PKNY:

This version of "You've Made Me So Very Happy" makes me so very happy...nice!
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:09am Andy in Berlin:

Thank you for NOT playing BS&T
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:09am Dave B:

related to this song, a friend of mine shared a version of "Manic Depression" that Blood, Sweat and Tears did on the album Nulcear Blues. Their version kicks major ass!
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:10am Meghan:

You know if there is a reggae or ska version of a song... it most likely will get played.....
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:13am erik:

  Thu. 1/13/11 8:38am procedura:

dear mcferrin be REALISTIC, sez RAMBO in this tune
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:39am Dave B:

Well, there are no Rush songs that I'm aware of that have Happy in the title...
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:41am jeff p:

@Dave B: if there was ever a chance of getting a Rush song played it was last week - perfect theme, no words, short song
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:42am Andrew:

Happiness Is a Warm Gun? Does "happiness" count as "happy"?
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:42am Meghan:

OH! MY Jeff said that even though he is a Rush fan, he agrees with me NOT playing that song. Nowhere do they mention the year, and since that was the theme.....
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:43am schizflow:

this sounds like the turntable is playing at varying speed
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:43am Meghan:

Used Happiness is a Warm Gun for the gun theme......
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:44am Andrew:

Oops.
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:44am jeff p:

the year was in the title, tho, which, iirc, was the only requirement.

I shall speak of this no more. It is in the past. Another Rush possibility will rear its head....
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:44am Andy in Berlin:

@Andrew - I forgot too
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:45am Dave B:

@Jeff P / Meghan - maybe if ever you do a Covers show, or a Guilty Pleasures show we can squash the Rush bug once and for all....
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:46am jeff p:

Mindless Self Indulgence's version of "Tom Sawyer"?
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:46am Meghan:

Actually, I listened to all the songs to make sure they have the year in them..... I was picky on that one!
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:47am Dave B:

CRAP - coulda used track 7 of this one:

A handy site to add to the Google Utility Belt:

  Thu. 1/13/11 8:50am Meghan:

So is www.secondhandsongs.com
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:51am Dave B:

Danke!
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:51am Meghan:

Hmmmmm, and to think I do this show all by myself...... No producer or encyclopedia to be there for me......
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:52am Dave B:

HAHA
The math question on the last one was 211+2

Coincidence?
  Thu. 1/13/11 8:54am randy in NC:

Factoid... WFMU's own EFD played drums with the Cosmopolitans, but not on that recording...
