Catwoman: Good evening all you gentlemen, mobsters, creeps and crooks, Huntress: All 3: You scum can simply call us, the one and only Birds of Prey! Black Canary: Blue Beetle's deeds are really swell!. Some songs are very lyrically direct. Other songs, however, are the musical equivalent of Word Salad Title. They might have some kind of symbolic meaning.
Anything by Cocteau Twins Vocalist Elizabeth Fraser went on to guest spots on albums by the Future Sound of London, Craig Armstrong, Massive Attack, and a few soundtracks, with much the same lyrical style.
Fraser herself has been fairly elusive regarding whether or not any of her lyrics and invented words have meaning. She has stated that she possesses a special dictionary of sorts that contains the words she sings, but despite acknowledging the use of an invented language, has described the basic effect of her words as thus: You know all the transcendent sounds. It's all sound all the way through. Subverted on Heaven Or Las Vegas where she confessed a lot of the songs were about her newly-born daughter.
Most of Beck 's songs qualify as this, but he actually has stories behind almost all of them. A prime example is "Loser": Forces of evil in a bozo nightmare Banned all the music with a phony gas chamber 'Coz one's got a weasel and the other's got a flag One's on the pole, shove the other in a bag With the rerun shows and the cocaine nosejob The daytime crap of the folk singer slop He hung himself with a guitar string Slap the turkey neck, and it's hanging from a pigeon wing From Futurama: You know, when I'm upset, I write a song about it.
Like when I wrote Devil's Haircut, I was feeling really I could write a song! With real words, not phony ones like "odelay. Just look it up in the Becktionary! Here's another gem from "Hotwax" I can't believe my way back when My Cadillac pants going much to fast Karaoke weekend at the suicide shack Community service and I'm still the Mack Shocked my finger, spicin' my hand I been spreading disease all across the land Beautiful air-conditioned, Sitting in the kitchen Wishing I was living like a hit man They Might Be Giants songs in general.
They seem to mean somethingbut good luck figuring out what. One of the more interesting examples has to be "On Earth My Nina", whose lyrics are Mondegreens from playing their song "Thunderbird" backwards.
Linnell has stated that the music for "Don't Let's Start" was written before the lyrics, and the lyrics were chosen mostly because the words fit the number of syllables for the melody.

When asked about the meaning of the song, Linnell simply stated it was about "not let's starting. The yellow Roosevelt Avenue leaf overturned The ardor of arboreality is an adventure we have spurned A famous person wears the same size water skis as me She's got three cars as many years I've lived in this city. Her hair is blonde and mine is brown; they both start with a "b" But when the phone inside her ribcage rings, it's not for me But when the phone inside her ribcage rings, it's not for me HEY!
Their "Crystal Fortress" song is about Strong Badasking for him to "come down from his crystal fortress". Strong Bad not only doesn't get the lyrics, but openly mocks the singer in the background. Their song Stuff is Way is basically entirely this. The chorus seems like some pretty straightforward musings about death "we die alone, we die in pain, we live in terror The verses sometimes less so: If you won't make out with a bi-plane No!
Perchance a dance with a carcass in space? But now you gotta buy me some antlers Antlers are what I need you to buy Why? Then send me down to the postman You do it! Tell the postman to throw me to They basically played along to a backwards recording of their song "Waterfall", then wrote new lyrics based on mondegreens of the backwards vocals. The "One Week" example is lampshaded in "Testing 1,2,3" off the following album The music video is more obvious about it, highlighting the next pointwhich is a Take That!
As their name implies, a lot of their songs are based on dreams or intended to feel dreamlike, so its sort of inevitable that this happens. Guitarist Peter Buck said once that Michael Stipe did this intentionally at times: And some of its not there to get.
Certain bits are just words that sounded good strung together. All of the guests were people with the initials L. And then the world ended. The name is also a Southernism for "losing my temper", which helps explain a lot but isn't immediately obvious. And then some have a meaning only known to them: Batman and Robin wouldn't break the law even to save their own lives, and Hefti took their commitment as seriously as they did, but without the technicolor outfit.
And so he struggled for a long time, tearing up one attempt after another, until he finally came up with the song that would go on to be covered by everyone from Jan and Dean to The Jam. It promised its weekly guests adventure, romance, and most of all, love, for everybody who boarded the Pacific Princess.
Critics hated the show with a passion, but the ratings soared. Williams' first major acting role had been playing Virgil, an orangutan, in Battle for the Planet of the Apes. It ran for ten years. The theme they created together was sung by Jack Jones for all of The Love Boat's seasons except its final one, when Dionne Warwick's version took over.
And despite its unambiguous depiction of love and romance on the high seas, Gavin MacLeod, who played Captain Merril Stubing, would later suggest that it could be reinterpreted to be a song praising Jesus. It was flexible as well as memorable. Rawhide, a show about a group of cattle drivers in the s, premiered inand ran for eight seasons. It popularized the term "hell bent for leather," and managed to have a life long after the show it was created for.
It's been covered by a diverse range of artists, including Liza Minelli, The Jackson 5, and Oingo Boingo, but it was its appearance in The Blues Brothers Movie and its accompanying soundtrack that put it back into the spotlight.
In a movie full of great songs, it holds its own. The songwriters knew their stuff.
Both had long careers and won a number of Oscars for their songs. Frankie Laine would later sing the theme to Mel Brooks' movie Blazing Saddlesa parody of classic westerns, complete with whipcracks. He sang it with such sincerity and heart that Brooks was sure he didn't know the movie was a comedy, and when Brooks saw the tears in his eyes, he didn't have the heart to tell him. The show would launch the career of John Travolta, and create a new set of high school archetypes for a generation of TV viewers.
Sachs needed a theme song, and what he wanted was something that had a Lovin' Spoonful type of sound. He was lucky; his agent also represented Lovin' Spoonful's founder, John Sebastian.
Initially, Sebastian only wrote one verse, but later added in more along with a harmonica solo, and released it as a single, with early pressings titled "Welcome Back Kotter" just so record-buyers would know it was the song from the hit show.
It spent a week in the number one spot on Billboard's Topselling over a million copies. It even made it to 93 on the Country chart.
Decades after the show was off the air, the song still resonated. Every week brought inventive stories, unforgettable characters, running jokes with taglines that never got old, and a steady stream of catchy songs. The theme song was performed by Bowling For Soup, who also co-wrote it. The show's creators, Dan Povenmire and Swampy Marsh, were fans of the band and asked lead singer Jaret Reddick to take the snippet they'd already started and create a theme out of it, along with a three and a half minute version for radio.
Reddick watched a couple of rough cuts of the show, and wrote the song the next day Not bad for a song that only took him 20 minutes to write. They performed in multiple episodes, most memorably to celebrate the anniversary of Phineas' mother and Ferb's father with a live performance of their '80s hit, " You Snuck Your Way Right Into My Heart.
The theme song, "Movin' On Up," reflected the joy of the move with an infectious beat and a sense of celebration. It was written by Jeff Barry and Ja'net Dubois. The song has become something of an anthem. It was covered by Sammy Davis Jr. Ludacris once told Rolling Stone that The Jeffersons was "every black person's favorite TV theme, because we movin' on up.
As proof of its place in American culture, President Barack Obama toured New Orleans on the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, and met a woman named Wheezy, he sang her the opening lines of the song, to her delight.
She auditioned to play one of Hannah's friends, but was asked to try out for the lead, then told she was too young for the part. But when the producers realized she could sing, they gave her the starring role anyway and she instantly became a teen idol.
She sang the show's theme song herself.
It was written by Matthew Gerrard and Robbie Nevil, and was one of only two TV theme songs in that decade to chart on Billboard's top The other was the theme from iCarly, sung by Miranda Cosgrove. When Cyrus was on tour, she'd dress up as Hannah to perform the song, but then years later, regretted some of the effects of her superstardom, in terms of both its effect on her as a teen growing up in front of an audience, and on other teenage girls watching it.
While she was singing "Best of Both Worlds" to packed concert halls and stadiums, she was full of anxiety and self-doubt. Since then, she's taken control of her own image and career. She started out as a teen idol and then became a magnet for scandal and criticism, but appreciation for her journey and her talent has come from some unexpected places. Woody Allen has cast her in the TV series he's doing for Amazon, and her godmother, Dolly Parton, is a staunch Miley supporter, remembering how she used to get criticism for her own sexy wardrobe choices.
About Cyrus, she said ,"So I did go through that, but I don't give her advice. Everyone has to walk this journey according to their own rules. That's what she's doing. And I lurve her. By season two of the show, the producers got smart and decided they'd be better off having the actual cast sing the song. Interestingly, the Brady kids did a lot more real singing on their show than the Partridges, who were actually playing a singing group.
All six Brady kids sang the theme together for the second season, but when the third one rolled around, they switched things up, and had the boys sing the first verse about the girls, the girls sang the second verse about the boys, and then they joined up together for the end.
For a show about a blended family, this made perfect sense. Decades later, there are multiple generations who still remember every word. For a different take on this squeaky-clean song from a squeaky-clean show, check out Jamie Foxx's versionwhich he says he would sing to prospective dates.
The show was The Greatest American Hero, and its shaky premise was that a school teacher William Katt met some aliens who gave him superpowers when he wore a special and pretty dopey superhero suit. He hires the Joker to kill Batman, but the Joker double-crosses him and kills him with Joker venom.
Vigoda previously portrayed gangster Salvatore Tessio in The Godfatherthough his character was a caporegime rather than the boss. Mark Hamill as The Joker ; Batman's nemesis, who was once an assassin for Valestra and is implied to be responsible for the murder of Carl Beaumont. Valestra hires him to kill Batman, but the Joker kills Valestra instead.
Hamill claims he took the opportunity of reprising his role from Batman: The Animated Series by way of creating new "laughing vocabularies. He is Batman's closest confidante. Robert Costanzo as Detective Harvey Bullock ; a detective with the Gotham City Police Department who distrusts Batman and is put in charge of the police task force assigned to hunt down the Dark Knight after he is framed for the gangster murders.

Dick Miller as Chuckie Sol; a crime boss and the Phantasm's first victim. Ryan as Buzz Bronski; a crime boss who seems to have had a brief partnership with Chuckie Sol. He is later killed by the Phantasm at the cemetery while visiting Sol's resting place. Production[ edit ] Impressed by the success of the first season of Batman: The original idea for the film was to have Batman being captured by his enemies at Arkham Asylum and be put on a trial by them, as they wanted to show that he was guilty of making them what they had become.
The idea's concept, however, was considered "too brainy", as it required Batman to be immobile for a long time, so the idea was later used in the series' episode "Trial", which was aired after the movie's release.
Burnett also cited he "wanted to do a love story with Bruce because no one had really done it on the TV show. I wanted a story that got into his head. Conversely, Paul Dini stated that the Joker was always part of the film from the beginning of its production.
Year Twowritten by Mike W. According to Burnett, the Phantasm was like the Grim Reaper with a cape, although the idea was to make him resemble the Ghost of Christmas Future of Charles Dickens ' novel A Christmas Carol something that even the Joker mentions in the finished version of the film. We boarded the script and did all of our designs and shipped it overseas. That left less than a year for production time most animated features take well over two years from finished story to final release.
Due to this decision, the animators went over the scenes in order to accommodate the widescreen theatrical aspect ratio. The opening title sequence featured a flight through an entirely computer-generated Gotham City. This was an homage to a mainstay of Batman comic books of the Dick Sprang era, often featuring the hero fighting against a backdrop of gigantic props they would later do another homage to Sprang's works in The New Batman Adventures episode "Legends of the Dark Knight".
This eventually leads into Bruce's decision to become Batman. Both events transform the two people Bruce becomes Batman, Andrea becomes the Phantasm.
