  • Science Fiction/Double Feature" is the opening song to both the 1973 stage play The Rocky Horror Show and its 1975 film counterpart The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The song is a tribute of sorts to various B-movies and serials parodied in the show itself. The movie version of the song is performed by a now-iconic pair of red lips belonging to co-star Patricia Quinn (although the song is sung by Richard O'Brien). In the original Rocky Horror Show, the song was performed by Usherette Trixie, or "Miss Strawberry Time" in the original London production, who doubled as the character Magenta. Cover versions have been recorded by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes and Chris Murray, among others. The Dresden Dolls have been known to perform it live. The Great Luke Ski parodied the song as "Mystery Science Theater Picture Show", a tribute to Mystery Science Theater 3000. Wikipedia (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Michael Rennie was ill The Day The Earth Stood Still
    But he told us where we stand
    And Flash Gordon was there in silver underwear
    Claude Raines was the Invisible Man
    Then something went wrong for Fay Wray and King Kong
    They got caught in a celluloid jam
    Then at a deadly pace, It Came From Outer Space
    And this is how the message ran:

    Science Fiction - Double Feature
    Dr. X will build a creature
    See androids fighting Brad and Janet
    Anne Francis stars in Forbidden Planet
    Oh-oh at the late night, double feature, picture show.

    I knew Leo G. Carroll was over a barrel
    When Tarantula took to the hills
    And I really got hot when I saw Janette Scott
    Fight a Triffid that spits poison and kills
    Dana Andrews said prunes gave him the runes
    And passing them used lots of skills
    But When Worlds Collide, said George Pal to his bride
    I'm gonna give you some terrible thrills, like a

    Science Fiction - Double Feature
    Dr. X will build a creature
    See androids fighting Brad and Janet
    Anne Francis stars in Forbidden Planet
    Oh-oh, at the late night, double feature, picture show.
    I wanna go, oh-oh, to the late night double feature picture show.
    By RKO, oh-oh, at the late night double feature picture show.
    In the back row at the late night double feature picture show.
