The complete Perry Mason Movie Collection. Perry Mason 50th anniversary Set
Yep:I believe it’s “Overture, curtain, lights...”, or I have been singing it wrong forever!
Thanks for the heads-up about the Warner archive sale, Peter! Might take advantage of that...Warner Archive is currently having a brief sale (40% off!) on multi-disc sets, including TV series. As a result, I just ordered:
A Man Called Shenandoah: Complete Series
Shazzan: Complete Series
Unfortunately, Mr. Novak: Season 1 is too new of a disc release to be included in the sale, or I would've grabbed that, too.
I did take the opportunity to pre-order Popeye: The 1940s Vol. 1 (color Famous Studios cartoons) on Blu-ray, but I personally don't consider collections of theatrical shorts a "TV series", even though many of them did eventually air on TV... unless, of course, someone put disc sets of formatted-for-TV stuff like the prime-time Bugs Bunny Show ("Overture... cut the lights...") or The Woody Woodpecker Show (hosted by Walter Lantz).
Bear in mind, up until recently, I thought (purely from half-listening to it on the radio for years) that the main "Big ol' jet airliner" lyric to popular Steve Miller Band tune, "Jet Airliner", was "Big hotel with the light on", and from England Dan & John Ford Coley's "I Really Want to See You Tonight", the lyric, "I'm not talking about moving in", was "I'm not talking about your linen", so...I believe it’s “Overture, curtain, lights...”, or I have been singing it wrong forever!
John Mellencamp had a hit in '89 called Pop Singer. The line went "Pop Singer, pop song", but I was sure he was singing "Bob Seger, Bob's song".There was a pop song on the radio called “Even the bad times are good!” when I was in highschool.
My best friend was convinced it was “Even the bagpipes are good!”
