Fun Fact: The Xmas song "Silver Bells" is from the 1951 (remake) comedy movie "The Lemon Drop Kid" starring Bob Hope. Even though it's the original version of a Xmas song, it's not dementia (but the version the besotted bum in the Santa suit sang in the scene just before it is). There are other versions of it the archive that count as dementia also.

It's a grey area sometimes. Hope, Crosby, Sinatra - they all at some point sang Xmas songs that were or weren't novelty. And it was always obvious when they were trying to be amusing or trying to create a classic. Leon Redbone, on the other hand, like Frank Zappa, is (usually) dementia by default because he went well out of his way just to create a look and sound that's unique/iconoclastic. One might even call it...novelty.

His entire Xmas album www.madmusic.com/album_details.aspx?AlbumID=7037 is in the archive. So it's often subjective.

According to research this song is the theme song from the 1980 COMEDY movie 9 to 5..... It was a toss up whether or not to play it but it seemed a good song to end the show with instead of a random song. (There were other songs lined up just in case songs were needed after the interview.... But timewise this seemed the best choice).

My request about not adding mainstream song pages applies to both of us as well. If you ever get an irresistible urge to play one to match a theme (it happens), just do what I did with this show www.madmusic.com/playlist.aspx?Show=MMS-163 & leave out making pages for what's not comedy or novelty & just list them on the show playlist.

I think we need to remember that DJ Darren is just 11 years old. He may think this song is funny.

And just for the record I almost used it in my Labor Day show, but ended up not needing to fill the time.

He likely never would, but yes, this is Wayne's rule. Everything Dr. D. plays goes into the archive. Including all that mainstream crap his station made him play in the '80s. Those pages are already here.

Despite the difficulties we've had with Barry over the years, the site remains true to its original concept.

Silly Question? If Dr. Demento had played this song on one of his Labor Day Shows, It would go in the archive, right?

No, it's not.

You can have a show with non-dementia in it, but when David Tanny or I run mundane tracks, we add them to the playlists without song or artistIDs. I recall asking nicely, and everyone was nice enough to do it this way ever since to help keep the archive demented. The last time I checked (which wasn't recently), this still worked.

The new site upgrade rules require an artistID with a track, but will remain ok if there isn't either kind of ID on a playlist. Unless it no longer works that way, don't add songs like this to the archive.

I need to eliminate this page (using my main account) so both playlist IDs need to come off this show's playlist track, then this page needs to be merged with something. It would be greatly appreciated if the playlist was changed by the show maker - I don't like messing with other show's playlists - but it's getting merged one way or the other...later today. I've annoying household tasks to do and I need to get to them now before I forget them completely again.

Okay, seriously do you really think this song is demented? Because I don't think so.
