Im looking over a four leaf clover


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.

Well, my dog died just yesterday and left me all alone
The finance company dropped by today and repossessed my home
That's just a drop in the bucket compared to losing you....



Uh ... I'm not really sure what's going right now. Perhaps Dr. Demento can enlighten me. For now I'll just let it ride...



I saw his, didnít 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.

And now in the category 80's Movie Themes, name that song...

Dance into the fire
That fatal kiss is all we need
Dance into the fire
To fatal sounds of broken dreams
Dance into the fire
That fatal kiss is all we need
Dance into the fire
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

A View to a Kill by Duran Duran. One of my favorite Bond themes, but strangely, not one of my favorite Bond movies!

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...

And now, in the category Classic Folk, name that song...

All my bags are packed I'm ready to go
I'm standin' here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin' it's early morn
The taxi's waitin' he's blowin' his horn
Already I'm so lonesome I could cry
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

"I'm Leaving on a Jet Plane"


I appear to have stumped the panel with this one

So here's another few lines from its chorus:

You and Jim and Tammy, Loni and Burt,
Farrah, Charo, Michael, and Kirk,
Jan and Dean, Erlene, Louise, Barbara, and Little Ray

"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.

And now, in the category 70's TV Tunes, name that song...

Like "The Rockford Files", I'm an instrumental theme with heavy synthesizer usage. Unlike most instrumental themes, however, I have voice overs on both my intro and outro. Here is how my outro starts...

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

Who am I?

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.

I loved you since I knew ya
I wouldn't talk down to ya
I have to tell you just how I feel
I won't share you with another boy

Hey Mickey! Toni Basil

Edit: nope, Iím wrong. The meter fits though. I never liked the song that it actually is.
