@P-90: Maybe her and Lincoln Chase had one of those, “You’re the boss of me? No, I’m the boss of you!” relationships.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 9:32pm Gaylord Fields:

A very strange day was when a very close high school friend, who knows practically nothing about popular music, told me that in the '80s she went on one date with this musician named Lemmy. She had no idea he was anybody.
Avatar    Thu. 9/3/15 9:34pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Gaylord, that reminds me of a story one of my professors told me. He's a television professor and doesn't follow music. As a teenager he served hot dogs to Bono and the Edge and they thought it was hilarious that he didn't know who they were. They called the other two band members over to have a look at the kid who didn't recognize them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 9:36pm Gaylord Fields:

But there's music on TV, Bronwyn. He's got no excuse, I say.
  Thu. 9/3/15 9:36pm shanghi1:

Thanks Mr. Fiveash. Is Lemmy OK?
Avatar    Thu. 9/3/15 9:37pm Bronwyn Bishop:

True Gaylord, true. I really don't understand people who just flat out don't like music.
Avatar    Thu. 9/3/15 9:37pm Matt F:

He had to quit a Motorhead show after 3 songs the other night due to shortness of breath.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 9:39pm JakeGould:

@MattF: Wonder if the doctors said, “Well you have shortness of breath, but your rock levels are just fine.”
  Thu. 9/3/15 9:39pm P-90:

@Gaylord: I assume you ascertained that the Lemmy she went out was "the" Lemmy, not Lemmy Lipschitz from some band from Brooklyn?
Avatar    Thu. 9/3/15 9:39pm Bronwyn Bishop:

How many Lemmys are there, though, really?
Avatar    Thu. 9/3/15 9:40pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Ooo I do love the Miracles
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 9:41pm Gaylord Fields:

@P-90: She described him as having all these warts on his face.

Case dismissed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 9:41pm JakeGould:

In the world of video games there is Lemmy Koopa, but—call me racist—I doubt Gaylord’s friend would go out on a date with a Koopa.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/3/15 9:42pm melinda:

Is Lemmy short for something?
  Thu. 9/3/15 9:43pm V Priceless:

Apparently Lemmy launched this tour against his doctors orders. Now THAT'S Rock
Avatar    Thu. 9/3/15 9:43pm Matt F:

it's short for "Ian".
Avatar    Thu. 9/3/15 9:44pm Matt F:

Lemmy's short for the general population but about average height for rock & roll.
  Thu. 9/3/15 9:44pm V Priceless:

and Roll! Still falling prey to 'and' symbol here. Ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 9:44pm JakeGould:

@VPriceless: “Lemmy, far be it for me—a medical doctor—to insist the rock should stop, but maybe the rock should take a breather.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 9:45pm Gaylord Fields:

@melinda: Story is that when his family moved from England to Wales when he was a kid, the other Welsh kids called him "Limey" and with a Welsh accent, it sounded like "Lemmy" to him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 9:46pm Gaylord Fields:

Another thing that instills Welsh pride, eh, Bronwyn?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/3/15 9:47pm melinda:

Interesting story, Gaylord. Makes sense. @Matt F: good one!
Avatar    Thu. 9/3/15 9:47pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Yes. Welsh accents are beautiful but they make lots of things sound funny
  Thu. 9/3/15 9:48pm cheri:

sorry so short matt, but I want to wish you, Gaylord and jake a happy labor day weekend! oh Gaylord, hope to see you sunday night!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 9:48pm JakeGould:

When I went to Wales I was stunned at how many sunburned people are there. So pale yet they all want sun and do—what I perceive—as a bad job of getting it.

Where did you go in Wales, Jake?
  Thu. 9/3/15 9:51pm V Priceless:

@JakeG: I imagine it's challenging enough to do what he does at 100%. Feel bad for the guy, but gotta tip my hat to him for the effort. Takes lotsa guts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 9:52pm JakeGould:

@BronwynBishop: Don’t remember exactly. It was the late 1980s/early 1990s. So many sheep on the side of the road.
Avatar    Thu. 9/3/15 9:54pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Yeah I saw lots of sheep too while I was there. It's very pastoral and idyllic and whatnot
Avatar    Thu. 9/3/15 9:54pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Yay Hank!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 9:54pm Gaylord Fields:

And those high hedgerows right up against the road made driving in Wales tricky, especially when you're not particularly accustomed to left-side-of-the-road driving.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 9:55pm Gaylord Fields:

That's Hank WILLIAMS, Bronwyn!
Avatar    Thu. 9/3/15 9:56pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Of course!

well goodnight matt, Gaylord, & jake!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 9:56pm JakeGould:

@GaylordFields: Maybe that is what Robert Plant was referring to when he mentioned a bustle in the hedgerow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/3/15 9:57pm melinda:

I had a fun experience as a passenger riding in a car on those kinds of roads in Wales, high on cold meds. Driving would not have been so fun. Their narrow-gauge railways were quite the ride, too.

@BronwynBishop: The Hank derivatives get worse with each new generation.
Avatar    Thu. 9/3/15 10:01pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Riding on top of a roofless double decker bus in Wales was a weirdly exhilarating experience, although the wind felt like it was ripping my face off.
Avatar    Thu. 9/3/15 10:01pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Not a Hank 3 fan Jake?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 10:02pm JakeGould:

@BronwynBishop: You realize that at this rate there will be a “Hank the Fifth” and if that does not send shivers down your spine… Well, you have a warm spine then.
Avatar    Thu. 9/3/15 10:03pm Bronwyn Bishop:

There's already a Hank IV although I believe they are a punk band
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 10:03pm Gaylord Fields:

But you can claim Jim Price, Scott Williams, and Bronwyn C — and that's just Monday's WFMU schedule!

There might be a Hank XIII one day. Horrors.

Gaylord, will you be here this sunday btw? I hope so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 10:04pm Gaylord Fields:

It's kinda curious that none of the three Hanks is actually named "Hank" (Hiram, Randall, and Shelby)!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 10:05pm JakeGould:

@sugarwolf: Maybe. I mean when Sleaford Mods first came on the station, DJs were playing “The Corgi” which is clearly a reference to Welsh Corgis.

I have a small but growing collection of 70s detective show theme songs, like Mannix & Barnaby Jones. I think Cannon will be the next one I add.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/3/15 10:56pm melinda:

Rockford Files had one of the best themes. I don't remember much of the show but hearing the theme music always made me happy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/3/15 10:56pm Uncle Michael:

Mannix is Lalo Schifrin and from '67.

@melinda - I agree with Rockford Files. You knew you were in for an hour's entertainment when that song came on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 10:59pm coelacanth:

Jake- i am speaking in relative terms though! i definitely watched whole episodes of most of them,now & then...and Columbo many times!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 11:00pm JakeGould:

FWIW, the first 12 (I believe) episodes of “Magnum P.I.” use a far more classic, sweeping theme than the “rocking” Mike Post theme most people associate with the show.

Also, watching the episodes in order with the help of Magnum Mania highlights something I never realized: The whole world of “Magnum P.I.” exists in the same universe of “Hawaii Five-O.” It’s not explicit, but lots of subtle references dropped in episodes. Of course Magnum is not a cop, so there is no deep overlap.

@uncle Thanks! Very funny!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/3/15 11:01pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hawaii Five-O theme by The Ventures is also one in my collection.

@coelacanth: Columbo! Now that is a classic.

@UncleMichael: Wow! Now that is an act of “Rockford Files” love! Thanks for the link.

Sanford and Son is my favorite theme song.

This is THE BEST version of Season of the Witch!

@Folsom: And “Sanford and Son” is the other show I am watching again.

I've had to blacklist my favorite tv theme.... Hikky Burr. It was even my ringtone.

UM @10:58 that's hilarious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/3/15 11:05pm Ken From Hyde Park:

We had a 1950 Ford F6 farm truck that was very similar to Sanford and Son's pickup (1951 F1). It was red, just like Fred's.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/3/15 11:06pm sugarwolf:

I just a British Play for Today called Season of the Witch. Julie Driscoll, Robert Powell and Paul Nicholas as well, not hippies, exactly...

It would have been even better if they had used Lou Rawls on the soundtrack.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/3/15 11:06pm Uncle Michael:

Well, Julie Driscoll did a pretty fair version herself.

Micky is truly an unsung hero of rock/pop vocals.

The only way this song would be better would be if it was about sea lions!

Since we are talking about old TV shows, we should mention The Carol Burnett Show
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/3/15 11:27pm melinda:

I watched Carol Burnett a lot but the theme music wasn't great, as I recall.

The closing theme from Carol Burnett was more memorable than the opening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 11:33pm Gaylord Fields:

Three of my favorite '60s theme songs have unusual time signatures: "Ben Casey" and "Mission: Impossible," both in 5/4, and "Room 222," which is in 7/4.

@Gaylord: “Mission: Impossible” is so great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 11:35pm Gaylord Fields:

What makes "Hanky Panky" so great is the Tommy James' made-up lyrics make zero sense, and bear no relation to the original.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 11:37pm Gaylord Fields:

First he's calling her "his baby" and then he's talking about them just meeting, and then he claims he never saw her. Backpedal much, Tommy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 11:37pm coelacanth:

Tommy Roe next?

Gaylord- I learned that the hard way!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 11:37pm JakeGould:

On the success of “Hanky Panky” Tommy James claims, “One night I was playing for 20 drunks in a bar in Michigan, and the next night I'm playing for 10,000 screaming fans in Pittsburgh.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/3/15 11:39pm Ken From Hyde Park:

By the way, did anyone remember to feed Dave's chimps?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 11:39pm Gaylord Fields:

@Matt F: "Hanky Panky" is like the ending of Monster A Go-Go: "But there was no monster..."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 11:39pm JakeGould:

@Gaylord Fields: That completely throws the whole concept of a singer singing a song in a fair point of view that takes all parties feelings/emotions into consideration out the window.
