Tom Lehrer is Smug

(no subject)

I had a thought (a thought! A shining, shimmering thought) in the midst of the 10-year reunion tonight.

Most reunion movies are soundtrack-driven: The Big Chill and Motown, Grosse Pointe Blank and new-wave 80s, you know.

But what would we, the class of '93, have for our soundtrack-driven reunion film?
The Spin Doctors.

Lord help us all.

The Grateful Dead did not record that version of "One Toke Over The Line" (that was Brewer & Shipley.) Simply because a song has druggie lyrics and a twangy late 60s hippie feel to it does not automatically make it the Dead's.
Harry Chapin did not sing "Please Come to Boston" (that was Dave Loggins -- no, not Kenny. Dave. Yes, there was a Dave.)
Tony Orlando & Dawn did not sing "Take A Letter, Maria" (that was RB Greaves.) I mean, these are all nice guesses here, people, but for the sake of accuracy let's do some fact-checking or something first, eh?

Oh, and the song is called "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)" and not simply "You're a Fine Girl" and definitely not "Your a Fine Girl."

Please make the proper changes where appropriate.

Your pal,
The Fucking Pedant
