You know, I'm beginning to kind of frighten myself.
So -- from 1968, here's the original version of "The Tra-La-La Song" by the world's greatest rock band, The Banana Splits. Okay, the world's greatest rock band featuring guys in idiotic costumes (screw you, GWAR).
While from 1979, here's a nifty first generation punk cover by the incomparable Dickies.
And finally, from 1995, here's perhaps the definitive version -- a fabulous alt-pop remake (from the Saturday Morning Cartoons Greatest Hits album) by Liz Phair and the late lamented Material Issue.
So, to recap -- I just posted three different versions of the deliberately silly theme song to a crappy kids show from the late 60s. Wow.
The funny thing is, I'm sure there are other worthy renditions out there, and I'd be happy to have them brought to my attention. On the other hand, I think I should probably give the whole subject a rest at this point.
