Options April 2, 2014: TERRIFIC!!

Listen to this show: | Add or read comments

Jon: I believe that I described to you the specific quality called "TERRIFIC!," yes? I've just found an example in which a picture's worth a thousand words. EVERYTHING about Robert Goulet in this photo is TERRIFIC!

In fact, it's SO incredibly TERRIFIC! that it might even qualify in the category of VERY TERRIFIC! ... dare I say, even possibly EXTREMELY TERRIFIC! (the ultimate level of TERRIFIC!ness).

Irwin: It's SO TERRIFIC, it makes me feel woefully inadequate.

Jon: It's worse than that: you're woefully adequate.

How about some Raymond Scott today? He's terrific, too!

I had to look that up. (Jazz Baroness.)

More to the point, how 'bout something from the new Raymond Scott Rewired record?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/2/14 3:16pm rrg:

I saw that!

That's Baroness as in Barone$$. Pannonica de Koenigswarter supported a lot of musicians...

that singing sadie song is so appropriate for what's going on at my stupid job right now!
Avatar    Wed. 4/2/14 3:35pm Roberto:

Speaking of trays, remember Old Dog Tray? At first I thought it was a song about a tray designed to carry old dogs.

This tune's for LAURA.

If you're doing "terrific" today, Laura and I still want to hear that song about the doggy, the one with the waggly tail.
Avatar    Wed. 4/2/14 3:40pm Roberto:

How about the song about the old dog on a tray?

Bob Goulet had one or two hits. You could play one of them. You know, seeing as how you put up his picture and all.

This FF takes me back to aught one.

Roberto, there's something wrong with your picture. It looks like a cat, not a person. I'm sure you're not a cat.

yeh? then what'd he say?

Do you have that Dr. Seuss album in front of you? Is there where you got the musical details?

My superficial Internet research has failed me so far.

A different Marvin Miller Dr. Seuss album has both a faster and slower version of Fox in Sox.

The Dylan Hears a Who version of Green Eggs is also good, as is WFMU fave Dictionaraoke by Mass Effekt
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/2/14 4:56pm rrg:

Thank you. Though I contend that the proper title of that work is "Fox in Socks".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/2/14 5:02pm Ike:

I forgot to say -- C.W. McCall, now that's REAL country music. Hot damn, that was fun. Not too slick, not overproduced, not off an assembly line.
Avatar    Wed. 4/2/14 5:07pm Irwin:

Ike, why are you so hung up on the past, on tradition, on the way things used to be?
Avatar Wed. 4/2/14 5:07pm Droll:

Ike, What's wrong with slick country music? What kinds of music are good when slick?
Avatar    Wed. 4/2/14 5:08pm Irwin:

Why can't you welcome change, accept the new, be PROGRESSIVE like me?
Avatar    Wed. 4/2/14 5:09pm Irwin:

Ike sez: "You call that MUSIC??!!"
Avatar Wed. 4/2/14 5:12pm Droll:

Gonna listen to some Dixie Dregs after the show!

"The Man Within" isn't The Man, that title is now forever reserved for the McDonald's "Success and Then Some" record Rich Squirrel Carcass played a few days ago. “You're the Man!” You're the Man…you're the Man With a purpose and a plan. The truth can answer proudly: “You're the Man!!”

This guy ain't got what it takes to run a McDonald's.

The music is by Gustav Holst. Jupiter (from The Planets)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/2/14 5:34pm steve:

after listening to that on Monday, i don't know if any of us have what it takes to run a McDonalds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/2/14 5:35pm Stau:

I've done that
  Wed. 4/2/14 5:36pm blee:

Oh man, that McDonalds Hawaii convention record smelled of pure gold. So amazing, on a million different levels of awe.
  Wed. 4/2/14 5:37pm blee:

Sean Landers sounds like he has a mighty fine ponytail.

I couldn't even make it through 5 min. of that McDonald's convention record, so I definitely don't have the bizschnatzelbunk to run one. Or eat at one.

There's still enough time for a Bob Goulet number. Or that doggy song.

This could be talkover music.

@IKE like you, I couldn't listen but for a few seconds to the McDonalds pickle and mustard brainwash before breaking out in hives. I am a Hope Depot Associate survivor. The Home Depot Nazi meeting PTSD is just too close to the surface.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/2/14 5:53pm Ike:

Yeah, sometimes the illustrious Inflatable Squirrel Carcass is a very advanced-level WFMU course. Great, but can be difficult.
Avatar Wed. 4/2/14 5:54pm mariano:

@Whooda: did you at least shoplift the WD-40 and electrical tape from HD?
Avatar Wed. 4/2/14 5:55pm Droll:

Ike doesn't like hot country or industrial musicals? Ike doesn't like fast music or slow music. Not loud, and not soft. And definitely not new or slick... How do you feel about The Eagles? Too country?

A fine finish. A fine rerun. Now we can all hit the road happy.

Thanks, Mr. Host, and see you'se later, AccuPlaylisters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/2/14 5:58pm Ike:

I can also be difficult, clearly. Eagles? Um... well... I like their Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy theme.
Avatar Wed. 4/2/14 5:58pm Droll:

I hardly consider the McDonald's record a challenging listen, especially compared to some of the stuff that gets aired here. I thought the McDonald's record was totally pro: songwriting, lyrics, arrangement, session musicians, singers... Where do you find a singer who can fake a Russian accent while singing about "gastric juices"? That album is totally accessible.

Thanks, Irwin. Have a fun week yinz!
