:) just played Summertime Dream a couple weeks ago. that was a nice band he had.
That, as some of us old folks say, is a hoot.
Apparently that's Rick Moranis doing the vocals:"When I first got onto SCTV, we were working in a vacuum. We had no idea there was an audience. We were just making each other laugh. I had done, for example, a parody of Canadian Content where I'd re-written a song of Gordon Lightfoot's. [Cast member] Dave [Thomas] did all these bogus K-Tel commercials, so we came up with the sketch 'Gordon Lightfoot Sings Every Song Ever Written.' Then, they had the budget to get a local country-sounding band in Edmonton to do a few bars from every single one of these songs I wanted. When I read that at the table, it was very clear what it was. It was a bit everybody could understand. That's the way things happened, doing a post-production show like that."
Great stuff. Robert Klein once did a similar bit about every record ever made that included, among other things, Lithuanian language tapes. . .
Don't forget Firesign Theatre's "40 Great Unclaimed Melodies"!
Genius!!!! Thanks I needed a laughThat's Rick Moranis? Wow. He does Lightfoot better than Fallon does Neil Young.
Who wouldn't pay $4.99 to get the "Theme from Mannix"?I miss SCTV...
