Barracuda by Heart


Winner! Winner! Fish and chicken dinner!

In interviews, Ann Wilson reveals that the song was inspired by her anger at their record label that was lying, cheating and spreading rumors about the band. So the barracuda was the BS of the music industry. In other interviews, Nancy Wilson reveals that they "borrowed" the song's famous riff from the band Nazareth who Heart had toured with in Europe. Nazareth wasn't very happy about it. (I wonder who the barracuda is in that story.)

Winner! Winner! Crying Chicken Dinner!!

This is one of those rare songs where the live version is considered definitive. Whereas the studio version plods along in an almost boring two-step fashion, when Cheap Trick played it at Budokan it was faster with two guitar solos, like bringing a song to the boiling point. Note that on the studio version an effect was used to echo the word "crying". So, if you wonder what the Japanese girls are screaming at them on the live version, it's "crying, crying crying" in mimicry of the record.

Studio version...

Winner! Winner! Cooking Chicken for Dinner!!

On an airplane ride, Hank Williams would write the song "Hey Good Lookin'" in a mere 20 minutes with Minnie Pearl and her husband watching him do it. He wrote it for his friend Jimmy Dickens to sing but was so pleased with the way it turned out decided to keep it for himself. The video below is rare in that very few Hank Williams performances were filmed. Note the young June Carter (years before she met, much less married Johnny Cash) clowning around at the beginning.

Winner! Winner! Overlooked Chicken Dinner!!

Not written for anyone in particular, "I'm Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover" became three hit records for three different artists in 1927. It was revived in the 40s and spent another 18 weeks on the charts. These days it's probably best remembered for being often used in Warner Bros. cartoons.

I saw his, didn’t know it (looked it up and never heard of it before, and also disqualified myself), but it reminded me of my song, which is by a band with a different hit, that hit which was used in this topic once I believe.

Winner! Winner! Gray Goose Dinner!!

The story goes that Duran Duran bassist John Taylor (a lifelong Bond fan) approached Bond producer Cubby Broccoli at a party, and somewhat drunkenly asked "When are you going to get someone decent to do one of your theme songs?" The result was the only Bond song to hit #1 in the US.

Here's the extended version...

"I'm Leaving on a Jet Plane"


Winner! Winner! Airline chicken for dinner!!

Written by John Denver, "Leaving on a Jet Plane" would first appear on his 1966 studio album. The definitive version, however, would easily be the Peter, Paul and Mary 1969 single. It would be their only #1 hit and also the last song the group would chart with.

"Lost civilizations, extraterrestrials, myths and monsters, missing persons, magic and witchcraft, unexplained phenomena."

The theme to In Search Of...

Supposedly, the subtitle of Star Trek III: The Search for Spock comes from the fact that Leonard Nimoy hosted this show, and one version of the story is, the working title was, "In Search Of Spock"

Winner! Winner! Found Chicken Dinner!!

There were three In Search Of TV documentary movies, the first being In Search of Ancient Astronauts in 1973 (based on the book Chariots of the Gods? by Erich von Däniken). Their ratings were good enough to make a spinoff series. Rod Serling, who narrated the three films, had died so Leonard Nimoy became the host of the TV show which lasted six seasons. The show was revived in 2002 with Mitch Pileggi hosting, and again in 2018 with Zachary Quinto taking the reins. The 70's Nimoy version, however, is what most people think of when the topic comes up.

The first single off the band's debut album, "Roxanne" would become a Police signature song. In interviews, Sting said that he first realized he was famous when The police were touring following the release of Outlandos d'Amour. In his hotel room he heard a window washer outside idly whistling "Roxanne" while going about his job.

Winner! Winner! Lay off of my Chicken Dinner!!

Perhaps the most recognizable rock and roll song ever written, Carl Perkins was playing a dance in 1955 when he heard a teen by the stage warn his date, "Uh-uh, don't step on my suedes!" Perkins glanced down and saw the kid was wearing blue suede shoes and one had a scuff mark. The rest is history.

The song has been covered by a slew of artists but, obviously, the Elvis 1955 version is considered definitive...

Another one of those songs recorded by a who's who of artists, "Ain't Misbehavin'" was written for the 1929 Broadway musical comedy play Connie's Hot Chocolates. Although the song is most associated with Lois Armstrong, the definitive version is probably by Thomas "Fats" Waller (who co-wrote the song's music) in the 1943 film "Stormy Weather".

Winner! Winner! Dizzy Chicken for Dinner!!

Described as "one of the best white dance records of all time", British band Dead or Alive would release the single "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)" in 1984. Seventeen weeks later (in 1985) it would top the UK charts. For those of you too young to remember the 80s or MTV back when it played music, this video kind of sums up all the hullabaloo.

Cinderella, she seems so easy, "It takes one to know one, " she smiles
And puts her hands in her back pockets Bette Davis style
And in comes Romeo, he's moaning. "You Belong to Me I Believe"
And someone says, "You're in the wrong place, my friend, you'd better leave"
And the only sound that's left after the ambulances go

And now, in the category Children's Music, name that song...

Hookin' up phrases and clauses that balance, like:
Out of the frying pan and into the fire
He cut loose the sandbags
But the balloon wouldn't go any higher
Let's go up to the mountains or down to the seas
You should always say Thank you
Or at least say Please!



I believe the train has just pulled into...

"Conjunction Junction", what's your function?

As I recall, that tune also contained the lyrics, "In the mornings, when I'm usually wide awake, I like to take a walk down by the lake, where I often see a duck and a drake, and I wonder what they would say if they could speak, although I know that's an absurd thought."

One of the "Schoolhouse Rocks" songs.

Remember "I'm just a bill, yes I'm only a bill..."?

How about, "Figure eight as two times four..."?


Man, I wasted a LOT of Saturday mornings watching cartoons!

Ride in a Stutz Bearcat, Jim

Oh, all the poets, they studied rules of verse
And those ladies, they rolled their eyes

Winner! Winner! Chicken AND Dumplings Dinner!!

Advertising executive David McCall noticed his young son was struggling with learning multiplication tables, despite being able to memorize the lyrics of every single Rolling Stones song. He hired musician Bob Dorough to write a song that would teach multiplication. This was the genesis of Schoolhouse Rock, a series of animated, musical short films that would try to teach kids various educational subjects.

The ABC network began airing them in the 70s during its Saturday morning cartoon schedule. Suddenly, as if by magic, kids were reciting the Preamble to the US Constitution from memory, telling their parents that interjections show excitement or emotion, and explaining why "3" is a magic number. The show had many catchy tunes, but the one that topped most people's list was "Conjunction Junction".

And now, in the category Bluegrass, name that song...

I'm a bluegrass instrumental standard written by Earl Scruggs. I was recorded and released in 1949 but am best remembered for my appearance in the 1967 motion picture "Bonnie and Clyde". If you ever learn to play the banjo, you'll probably learn to play me.

Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner!!

After appearing in Bonnie and Clyde, "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" is now typically used by Hollywood for scenes depicting chases in a rural setting. The song would win a Grammy in 2001 for a performance featuring Scruggs with comedian Steve Martin on second banjo.

I was at the stadium
There were twenty thousand girls called their names out to me
Marie and ruth but to tell you the truth
I didn't hear them I didn't see
I let my eyes rise to the big tower clock
And I heard those bells chimin' in my heart
Going ding dong ding dong ding dong ding dong.
Ding dong ding dong ding dong ding dong
Counting the time, then you came to my room
And you whispered to me and we took the big plunge
And oh. you were so good, oh, you were so fine
And I gotta tell the world that I make her mine make her mine
Make her mine make her mine make her mine make her mine
A falling knife has no handle.

Ramblin’ Man, Allman Brothers Band




The Allman Brothers is one of my favorite bands. I must have seen them 15 times over the years. I met Gregg after a show in Chicago in 2005. Unfortunately they never had Ramblin' Man on the setlist when I was there.

Schoolhouse Rock Questions:

1. A number of teachers reported that, when the question, "What is the Preamble to the Constitution?" appears on tests, a number of students could be heard singing the song. They all got the question wrong - because what words are missing?
What four words are missing from the Preamble to the Constitution of the United States in that song?
The song begins, "We the People, in order to form a more perfect union," but actually, it's, "We, the People of the United States"


2. In "I'm Just a Bill," what, exactly, is the law that the bill becomes? Hint: it's a real thing, but it may be only at state level.
All school buses must stop at railroad crossings.


Also, it wasn't always called "Schoolhouse Rock." In the first season, it was only the multiplication tables, and called "Multiplication Rock." In the second, Saturday mornings was Grammar Rock ("Grammar is not your grandma, it's your grammar"), and had only five of the nine songs (Noun, Verb, Conjunction, Interjection, Adverb); I think Multiplication Rock aired on Sundays.

ThatDonGuy,

I used the song myself, but I knew the song was missing those words, so I managed to avoid making that mistake.

Winners! Winners! Ramblin' Chicken Dinners!!

For the most part, the band didn't really care for "Ramblin' Man". They felt it was just too country when compared to their other songs. Ultimately, however, they decided the song was just too good to pass up. So they recorded it and it would become the Allman Brothers Band's only top 10 hit.



The selection of this song was inspired by this amusing moment of confusion on the WOV livestream... [Video cued]
