This series didn't have that much music in it and what Mama sang the very few times that she did, weren't they written by the writers or even Vicki herself? so I don't know what would have to be cleared unless Eunice's song from The Wedding Part 2 wasn't something written for the episode.
We already know about Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and Happy Days Are Here Again, after those two, I can't recall what else would have to cleared.
You'd be surprised just how much music the show used. I sat down the other night and watched the first five episodes and there were a bunch of songs - mostly sung by characters. From memory, in "For Better or for Worse" Vint and Naomi sing Kenny Rogers' "The Gambler" and the Mr. Ed theme song (both cleared for the DVD), In "The Wedding (1)" Vint sings "Get Me to the Church on Time" from My Fair Lady (cleared for the DVD), the women all sing "Hard Hearted Hannah" (though that may be in the public domain, I'm not sure) and Eunice sings "Oh Promise Me" (may be in the public domain, too), in "The Wedding (2)" Eunice sings "Oh Promise Me" again and in "Family Feud" they used the Family Feud theme song. Those are just the first five episodes off the top of my head. Some others I can remember from other seasons: "Rollin on the River" was sung by Thelma in "Dependence Day," The Jeopardy theme song was used for the "Jeopardy" episode, "Sugartime" by the McGuire Sisters was sung by the Bonecrushers in "Bubba's House Band," in a flashback in "Sins of the Mother," Eunice sings the "Mother" song, in "Mama in One," the songs they didn't cut were Frank Sinatra's "Brazil," "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man" and Frank Sinatra's "Me and My Shadow" and of course, the several times the "Happy Birthday" song was sung throughout the series (you have to pay to use that, too) - and those are just some I've thought of without the list of episodes in front of me. The more episodes I watch, the more I'm starting to think that we really got lucky with this set having ONLY a dozen or so music edits.
