Music from the Show

This article is more than 10 years old.

Jaws Theme by City of Prague Philharmonic (from Cinema Century, Silva, 1996)

I could have used the theme from Jaws 4, but we broadcast in stereo, not in 3D.

Thunderstruck by AC/DC (from Razor’s Edge, Sony, 1990)

This is for you Gabe! This is for you, Robert Pollard! This is for B.J. Leiderman, too!

Stanford University Fight Song by The USC Trojan Band (from Fight Songs, Delta, 1989)

Conflict of interest, anyone?

Once Was a Gambler by Lightnin’ Hopkins (from The Best of Lightning Hopkins, Arhoolie, 2001)

Wait…Lightnin’ Hopkins has a record titled “The Best of Lightning Hopkins"? This would be like having The Beetles Greatest Hits by The Beatles, The Best of the Rollin’ Stones by The Rolling Stones or Abba Gold by ABBA. It’s not right.

Bang-A-Boomerang by ABBA (from ABBA Greatest Hits, Atlantic, 1975)


Piece of Junk Car by KJ-52 (from Behind the Musik, EMI, 2007)

As for my piece of junk car, I submit a 1969 Plymouth Satellite Wagon, lime green. The tailgate window didn’t close, and a family of cats (not mine) lived in it, babies and all.

Also, a 1975 Plymouth Valiant Custom, brown with white vinyl top and white interior leatherette. Which I lived in for a while.
