I'm partial to their song  Try It.

A skeevy little ditty about begging for poon that has a nice beat that you can tap your toes to.

my old garage/punk band used to cover this and "sometimes good guys don't wear white." always a good time.

Seriously, Boston, come up with a new theme song. That one really sucks. Just because it has the word "Boston" in it doesn't mean you have to automatically love it.

Oddball: Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is ? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

That's my favorite episode.  The band sucked at that time, they just did Beatles covers.  But Herman Munster's improvised Beatnik poetry is one of the greatest moments of television history.

"I'm hopeful that Boston can pull its' head out of its' collective ass and come up with a better theme song."

How's that?

I still get happy when I hear Jimmy Buffett's West Nashville Grand Ballroom Gown and they get to the part 'six hours later we hit Cincinnati'.

That would make Larry Tamblyn Amber's uncle

I assumed Boston's new theme song was "Shipping Up To Boston".

The song camne out in '66 and was written by a band from Los Angeles.  From WIKI: Despite the references to Boston and the Charles River in "Dirty Water," the Standells are not from Massachusetts.  Ed Cobb wrote the song after a visit to Boston, during which he was robbed on a bridge over the Charles River. None of the Standells had been to Boston before the song was released.

I'll take it as a great song from its era that still holds up pretty well.

I checked my spreadsheet and yeah it is.
But the truth is most people here get PO'd because they aren't actually as tolerant as they would like to think they are.
C'est la vie/speaking truth to power/etc.

This is more the kind of link I would expect on Fark.   The incomparable Mike Douglas hosts the not-immortal-enough Ted Knight and Moe Howard.
