The Electric Company - POISON

When I was a kid, I thought this song ROCKED! I probably hadn't heard it in 35 years, but the melody and most of the words always remained clear in my head. It was the thread about Zoom in GD that inspired me to search for this and I found it. It still rocks. mushy

Instead of the skull, they should have had a picture of Mr. Yuk. wink

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

I found out not long ago that Gene Wilder was the voice for Letterman.

I did not know Mr. Yuk back then. I didn't know anything about the Jolly Roger or Pittsburgh Pirates either so skull and crossbones always meant poison to me.

The song's lyrics would have to be changed for Mr. Yuk. lol

^^^ Wow, that one is good too. It's too bad these Short Circus songs aren't on the soundtrack.

I remember the Spider-Man theme, but never heard the complete version. At the time I found the Spider-Man episodes to be a bit scary.

I wasn't scared of the EC Spider Man segments, but I was scared of Scooby Doo and wouldn't watch it.

There was a time when producers would hire bands and arrangers to create great sounding original music for TV shows.

I miss those times.

I grew up in the 80's and there were so many classic pieces on the shows of that era.

Music, sweet music, I wish I could caress and...kiss, kiss...

I never knew she was part of the early cast. Or that it was originally filmed in black and white.
