Zapp sang "Leela, L-l-l-l-Leela . . ."

The actual song's name is "Lola," by The Kinks, an 80's band, as I recall.
Lola, L-l-l-l-Lola . . .

also, "Yoda," by Weird Al,
Yoda, Y-y-y-y-Yoda . . .

It is indeed "Lola" by The Kinks, but the song is from 1970 (perhaps 1969). The version released in 1980 was a live one, not the original.

Zapp singing that song was worth than death...maybe he'd sing better if he took singing lessons...  :p

I thought it was great.
Don't know why all does idiots abandoned the ship.
Zapp has real talent, I would buy a Futurama soundtrack CD for that song alone.

So we know Zapp's song, but what about Kif's? I liked this song. Does anyone know the original title from that song?

"Total Eclipse of the Heart" Best known with Bonnie Tyler.

I know this thread is 2― years old, but I've just come across this footage, which puts Zapp's performance in (too much) perspective:

You should listen to the new cover of "Ordinary people", done by none other then William shatner, the begining sounds like Zapp singing Lola.

Haha, that's where Seth MacFarlane got the scene from he used on FamilyGuy.   :laff:

Not that bad, but I'd still prefere the original.   ;)

And now to quote a realy old post:

Didn't some guy named Nikki Thomas do a version of the song too? That's the only version I can find on iTunes...

Isn't the original Lola song had a twist in the end that Lola was actually a GUY? I think that's the whole joke here.

Could this be marginally another SW reference in "Futurama", since Weird Al's "Yoda" is a well-known parody???

No?  Okay.

All I know is they did another thread about this, only that one actually questioned Zapp's sexuality... for obvious reasons (read Tweek's post in case you don't know by now)

For decades the Star Trek fan community have fought to rid itself of the collective memory of that horrible Shatner song? recital? abomination?

Also where the "How can you do a spoken word version of a rapsong?" joke come from.

Zapp's song reminds me of that song William Shatner released over the summer called "Common People". Ha, I know I wasn't the only nerd who played that downloaded tune time and time again on long sunny summer days which I spent inside working on PHP scripts...or was I?

"I met her in a club down in old soho. We'd drink champaign and it tastes just like coca cola.
C-O-L-A cola.
She walked up to me and asked me to dance.  I asked her her name, and in a dark brown voice she said LEELA, L-E-E-L-A leela, lee lee lee leeeeela, ba ba ba bum bum bum da da da da, da da da da da da, leeelaaaaa (glass breaks)ba da da da da da bum"
