Re: Whats your favorite 'School House Rock' song?

Conjunction Junction is one I remember.

Re: Whats your favorite 'School House Rock' song?

Conjunction Junction was the best, but I did like Unpack Your Adjectives too.

Though I kind of half-resented the schoolhouse rock segments. Yes their songs are fun and catchy, however, I looked forward to Saturday mornings....my day off from school (I HATED school with a passion) and watching my favorite cartoons only to be interrupted with something....EDUCATIONAL.

Re: Whats your favorite 'School House Rock' song?

I thought they were great. Fun and painless education mixed in with the mindless cartoons.

I saw a fun stage version of Schoolhouse Rock a few years ago. Live actors acting out the segments. The songs brought back memories.

"I do my thing in action.

VERB! That's what's happening!"

Re: Whats your favorite 'School House Rock' song?

Preamble, because it allowed me to pass some tests in history class over the years.

The Dream Police, they live inside of my head

Re: Whats your favorite 'School House Rock' song?

I had to weigh in on this. My favorite was Conjunction Junction with I'm Only A Bill close behind.

Re: Whats your favorite 'School House Rock' song?

Of course Conjunction Function"what's your function?" and close second is "How a bill becomes a law"

Figure 8 is two times 4
Figure 4 is halve of 8
If you could skate you would great
If you make a figure 8
And lay the figure on its side, you have-
INFINITY!

Loved that one!

Re: Whats your favorite 'School House Rock' song?

Also my favorite. And one of the few sang by a female, as I recall.

Re: Whats your favorite 'School House Rock' song?

My Hero Zero. Always brings a tear to my eyes.

If I give everyone in hell ice water, can I have a pony?

Re: Whats your favorite 'School House Rock' song?

"Interjections" was always my favorite.

"Adjectives" is good fun (he was a hairy bear, he was a scary bear).
"Conjunction Junction" is pretty great.
I'm fond of "Three is a magic number."

Re: Whats your favorite 'School House Rock' song?

My favorite was always the Noun song ("You know they're nouns...I find it quite interesting, a noun's a person, place, or thing, yeah nouns are a person, place, or thing". It had really nice chirpy melody and loved the bit about putting a nickel in the drug store record machine (!) and the name drops of The Beatles and Chubby Checker (obviously the song was not written by the youngest of songwriters for the mid '70's but I can still see that little girl grooving to the jukebox in the cartoon after almost 40 years.)

I also love "Interjections" - for Excitement! For Emotions!

Re: Whats your favorite 'School House Rock' song?

My Hero Zero
(Don't remember the exact name) Suffering Until Sufferage (?)
He said...I'll see ya later, and aaa...Don't forget my...Mashed Potata
Interjections
A Noun is a Person, Place or Thing
Skate a Figure 8
And there was one with a pool-playing cat I liked alot, if only for the cartoon

Re: Whats your favorite 'School House Rock' song?

I'm quite late on this one.

Call me weird if you like but,even though I'm a guy,
my overall favorite is the R & B / rock flavored ,
"Sufferin' 'Til Sufferage" about how women won the right to vote in 1920.

It was sung by Lynn Ahrens at her best and her delivery
rivals the vocal abilities of Patti LaBelle or Aretha Franklin.

The music is as good as any pop Top 40 song of that decade for that matter.

Here's what I feel are the best,
the rankings would not be that far apart points-wise :

1. Sufferin' 'Til Sufferage
2. Verb! That's What's Happening!
3. Figure Eight (By the late great Blossom Dearie)
4. 3 Is A Magic Number Rufus Xavier Sarsaparilla (About Pronouns)
5. Conjunction Junction
6. A Noun Is A Person, Place Or Thing
7. Preamble
8. The Good Eleven
9. Interjections
10. Rufus Xavier Sarsaparilla (About Pronouns)
11. Elbow Room
12. No More Kings
13. Lolly,Get Your Adverbs Here
14. Lucky 7 Sampson
15. Zero My Hero
16. Four Legged Zoo
17. Elementary My Dear
18. Unpack You Adjectives
19. Fireworks
20. Shot Heard 'Round The World
21. I Got Six
22. Mother Necessity
23. I'm Just A Bill
24. Ready or Not, Here I Come (Multiplication by 5's)
25. The Great American Melting Pot
26. Electricity-Electricity
27. Body Machine
28. Naughty Number 9
29. 3 Ring Government
30. Victim Of Gravity
31. Them Not So Dry Bones
32. Telegraph Line
33. Energy Blues
34. Do The Circulation
35. Hey Little Twleve-Toes
36. Interplanet Janet

( Guess you can see,not big on Science Rock. )

Well,there they all are!

Conjunction Junction

Volker Flenske: (While torturing David) I don't know why you're doing this to yourself!

Re: Whats your favorite 'School House Rock' song?

I thought Sufferin' Til' Sufferage was sung by Essra Mohawk.

Re: Whats your favorite 'School House Rock' song?

I always liked Conjunction Junction and I'm Just a Bill and Interjections.

I did find this funny Star Wars video mashup for the Interjections song.

Re: Whats your favorite 'School House Rock' song?

For some reason "3 is the Magic Number" has always been one of my favorites; but hands down the absolute #1 is "I'm Just a Bill".

People on ludes should not drive!

Re: Whats your favorite 'School House Rock' song?

I have a tie:
Conjunction Junction and I'm Just a Bill

Re: Whats your favorite 'School House Rock' song?

Probably 'Conjunction Junction;' it's got that great slow, easy, greasy groove.

- Crazy. All crazy but I'm.
