Phil's Fave Groups-The Turtles

I love all eras of the music we play from the 50's through the 80's on Those Were The Days.  Some of my favorite listening music comes from the late 60's.  Top 40 pop music was in its prime and the Turtles led the way.  They had 5 top ten tunes including: It Aint Me Babe, Happy Together, She'd Rather Be With Me, Elenore, and You Showed Me.  They had 17 memorable pop and folk rock ditties make the Billboard charts between 1965 and 1970.  We will revive some of those tunes during this weeks Saturday night rock and roll program.  We will share with you some reflections on the Turtles with guest group member Mark Volman!

 

I hope to hear from you this Saturday night.  You can call the hotline or email me with ideas and requests This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.    Listen for trivia and other surprises during Those Were The Days.

    Movie Music

    I wonder how many times Happy Together has been used in a TV show or commerical.

    Happy Together

    It might be the most used movie and commercial song of all time! I remember it in a movie called Innerspace. Here is what wikipedia had to say:

    The song has been featured in many movies, including 1970's The Magic Garden of Stanley Sweetheart, 1983's Heart Like a Wheel, 1987's Making Mr. Right, 1987's Ernest Goes to Camp, 1989's Happy Together, 1990's The Naked Gun, 1994's Muriel's Wedding, 1997's Happy Together, 2000's Sorted, 2002's Adaptation., 2002's Cherish, 2002's S1m0ne, 2002's Bubble Boy, 2003's Freaky Friday featured "Happy Together," as well as a cover by Simple Plan, 2004's Ma Mère, 2005's Imagine Me and You, 2006's documentary Blindsight, 2007's The Simpsons Movie, 2008's 27 Dresses, and 2009's The Stepfather. Frank Alamo's French cover of the song was featured in the 2010 movie Get Him to the Greek and Scared Shrekless.
    In television, the song has been used in many episodes of The Simpsons including "The Way We Weren't" and "Trilogy of Error", and in episodes of That '70s Show (sung by the cast in the episode "That '70s Musical"), The Muppet Show (sung by guest star Florence Henderson with a set of Muppet Monsters and Frackles), Cupid (sung by Lisa Loeb), Scrubs, ER, The Wonder Years, and the My Name Is Earl episode "Faked His Own Death".

    Wow! It has been used more than I thought. The Turtles song Elenore was featured in a movie called Pirate Radio a few years back and is one of the hilites at the end of the movie.
