  • Brief Intro (release date, etc.) 06. "80s TV" (released on 6/5/2010) - yet another original rap, this time, sort of like 70 lines about 35 TV shows. Every two lines weaves in a name of a popular TV show from the 80s at the end of the pair.

    Background about the song: How this song came about was that one day, the writer was making a list of television shows from the 1980s, and decided to make a song out of it. He didn't want to create a song where the names of the shows were the lyrics, like some of the songs were such as "Life is a Rock but the Radio Rolled Me" and "We Didn't Start the Fire". The writer decided to add something more to the lyrics by saying how the writer was feeling or what state he was in, and having the name of the TV show at the end of the second line rhyme with the word at the end of the first line of the related pair of lyrics. It ballooned into about three dozen TV shows, which barely scratches the surface of what TV shows existed during the decade, but will have to do or else the song would be far longer than six minutes.

    Where the humor in the recording comes from: The reminiscing of the decade brings up memories of what TV shows were just premiering or first running on network TV. Good times, laughter, and fun were part of TV parties as viewers lounged together to watch their favorite shows during the decade, such as Monday Night Football, Dallas, The Facts of Life, Cheers, General Hospital, Late Night with David Letterman, USA's Night Flight, MTV when it once played videos, Real People, Magnum P.I., Miami Vice, and many more. The funny moments about what viewers saw on the TV shows last a lifetime. (davidtanny)
