Hey , Josef. ..I see your most boring tv thread got axed because it was a " hate thread "
Talking Heads Found A Job
Nice Thread, OP!
Bruce Springsteen - 57 Channels (Nothin' On)
Watching TV......Roger's Waters
Correct title: 57 Channels (And Nothin' On) - Timed out, before I could make correction. Correcting in case this goes a lot of pages, for thread search function to work.
Great song !
" Damn that television. What a bad picture."
What a bad picture
It' s not about television but Dylan' s ' Black Diamond Bay ' has this great line in it :
" I was sittin' alone at home one night in L.A. watchin' old Cronkite on the seven o'clock news..."
And I figgered the first reply would be "Celluloid Heroes"
Kind glad it wasn't. Never cared for that song, despite being a Kinks fan.
If this was in the music forum, it would be pages long by now.
I like Movies is Magic by Brian Wilson.
Everyone's Gone To the Movies - Steely Dan
Groovy Movies - the Troggs
Good Guys Only Win in the Movies - Mel & Tim
French Film Blurred - Wire
Cinema Show - Genesis
TV Party - Black Flag
Television - Dave Edmunds
She Watch Channel Zero - Public Enemy
One of my favorites is The Film Of My Life by 10cc.
Buck Owens' Act Naturally, made famous by Ringo's recording of it by that band...
By the way, Buck Owens is the only songwriter, as far as I know, to have a song recorded by the Beatles (this one) and another by Ray Charles (Cryin' Time).
He didn't write "Act Naturally"
But this live version I've always liked.

The Everlys' delightful ditty - Radio and TV
