Yeah, I know this is probably the most vanilla post I've had on this blog so far but c'mon!!! Ya gotta give props to a musical testament of the greatest TV show ever. And you think the Simpsons are popular today??? They were truly taking over the world back in 1990 - does anyone remember that "Do The Bartman" was the number one song in the UK for fucking three weeks and was an MTV staple looooong before Simpsons re-runs took up most of Fox's afternoon schedule? The bootleg Simpsons t-shirt market probably generated more income than any fucking "work at home" infomercial scam offered today (remember the plethora of "Black" Barts?). Regardless, the tunes are as fresh as the show is today (and I don't mean that sarcastically) - Burns and Smithers squabbling in "Look At All Those Idiots", Homer admitting he isn't the brightest bulb on the tree in "Born Under A Bad Sign". Priceless. OK, the voices aren't quite as perfected as they are today (Marge in "I Love To See You Smile" comes to mind) but you'd be retarded not to know who's who. Enjoy.
