I just watched "Time Keeps on Slippin'" again, and I realized that the weird science fiction-y music that plays when the Globetrotters' ship lands is actually "Sweet Georgia Brown."

Don't forget the "Bee Happy" song in The Sting. Or the song from the end of Jurassic Bark. Or one particular song from SP3K that I can't remember.

I'm wondering what the <expletives deleted> music from 300 <expletives deleted> big boys was both in Fry's 100 <expletives deleted> cups of <expletives deleted> coffee scene and after  <expletives deleted> <expletives deleted> Farnsworth came out of the <expletives deleted> Gene lab with his new face. "Turn that <expletives deleted> music.....UP!"

For the love of Zod, edit that post!

I wonder what it was too. My guess is that it is a pardoy on some scene from the Matrix.  :confused:

I can sing Leela's line in the Tale Of Two Santas song really well.  I also wonder what song that is in 300 BB.  Sounds like a cool song.

Well, I'm good at stetching my voice.  That's why I'm lead vocals in my band. 

Also, in L & R, is that a real song on the radio?  It sounds like a good song also.

The song in L&R was "Two Princes by Spin Doctors.

The music in 300 Big Boys is probably a Christopher Tyng original. That way they don't have to pay royalties. Well at least they wont have to pay royalties to someone outside the company, Tyng still need to get his share.

« Reply #51 on: 06-21-2003 11:43 »

Chris Tyng is a great musician! All Hail!

There is a song by Scruffy the Cat in 2ACV07 called The Moons of Jupiter or something like that, but along with that I have to put Chopin's Polonaise in C-minor (played by Bender in Godfellas) because Ken Keeler brought up in an interview that noone had identified it and it's quite a famous piece of music (compared with Scruffy the Cat anyway).

There's a Futurama version of Happy Birthday too, so that they don't have to pay for the real one.

ALL: What day is today?
     Tis Nibbler's birthday
     What a day for a birthday
     Let's all have some cake.
FRY: And you smell like one too!

In addition to that, Hanson's 'Mmmbop' is being played during Eric Rogers' section of AOI1 (2ACV16).

Where'd you find that out, Sil?

And thanx, Teral.  It seems like a good rock song.

« Last Edit on: 06-21-2003 12:23 »

Where did I find out which bit?  If you mean the Scruffy the Cat thing, it's on the commentary for Put Your Head on my Shoulders (2ACV07), but I know people who knew them in the 80s,  as well.  The Ken Keeler thing about the Polonaise is in an interview on CGEF (I knew it anyway - I learned it on the piano!) and he sounded pretty annoyed that no-one identified it, so...

The Happy Birthday is in 2ACV01 (I Second That Emotion).

EDIT: Because I *still* can't spell!

That's really thorough.

But you missed the Spin Doctors' "Two Princes" (off the Pocket Full o' Kryptonite album). Mid-90s.

Nice list Daniela.   :cool:

In the interest of completeness, I'd like to add "Don't You (Forget About Me)" by Simple Minds, from "Luck of the Fryrish".

While we're on the subject of music, here's a little known* fact about "Two Princes" by the Spin Doctors: Before extensive rewriting, "Two Princes" was actually a song comparing and contrasting The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli, and The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupéry.

* And by "little known", I mean made up.   :p

I'm not sure of the specific date, but you can add:

Black Flag, "TV Party"; 1985
[4ACV06] Played while Cubert, Dwight, Tinny Tim imitate Bender.
-A modified version of the song is sung over the ending credits.

It's obviously "TV Party," but the vocals don't sound like Henry Rollins.  Do any Black Flag aficionados know if there was a legal reason to prevent the original song from being played?

Urban Legend
« Reply #64 on: 08-25-2004 00:36 »

The reason is because they put in the part of the song where all the guys in the band were singing at the same time.

Black Flag is overrated.

2ACV12 - The Deep South

Bender Hums a part of Dueling Banjos after the act break and the colonel says folks around these parts call him the colonel.
