Country Blues makes it onto "THE SIMPSONS" WHOOHOOO!
« on: November 16, 2008, 05:31:57 PM »
One of their writers must be "one of us" because there was Carl Martin singin' Farewell to You Baby
during a bit where Homer is moonlighting by breaking up relationships for people too wussy to do it themselves.
I thought i was having an auditory hallucination for a minute there, but no it was really happening. Now I think I'll celebrate with a doughnut, mmmmmmm.

Yeah, a nice little surprise from the boob tube. It took me a few seconds to register I was hearing Carl Martin on network television.

That's awesome! I missed tonight's episode. Was there any mention of the musical genre or cartoon depiction of a Bluesman, or they simply used the song? We'll take what we can get haha

Just the tune, along with one by, I think, Rick James and another by The Association doing Cherish.
An appropriately odd mix for an episode whose sub-theme was crossword puzzles.

TV.com thinks the song during the crossword competition is "Word Up" by Cameo, which may be right for all I know.  But then they also think that's David Cassidy doing "Cherish" and they don't know from Carl Martin at all.

 . . . I still love the Simpsons too although I'd say they've lost some steam. It's a Family Guy world now! I like FG but they often come off as a too willful exaggeration of the Simpsons.

It's a difference in humor.  There was a Muddy Waters bit on "Family Guy" once -- pretty much ridiculous (I prefer "King of the Hill" and "Southpark" is great too, though sometimes pretty gross).  There is some satirical content on "Family Guy" but it's more "out there."  I always thought "the Simpsons" suffered greatly when they killed off Bleeding Gums Murphy.  This should probably go in the quotes section:  "The blues ain't about makin' ya feel better, Lisa.  It's about makin' other people feel worse." -- Bleedin' Gums Murphy.
