"Bucker & Garcia" in Wreck-it-Ralph
« on: February 07, 2013, 10:02:20 AM »
A factoid that had escaped me until today, is that a song that plays over the end credits of "Wreck It Ralph" (titled, "Wreck It, Wreck It Ralph") is by "Buckner & Garcia."  I put this in quotes because, Gary Garcia having died, it's more an honorary Buckner & Garcia song.

Novelty singles can't get through these days.




























Thankfully.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

All the Best Show threads tie together:

[Jump 'N the Saddle Band] entered into negotiations with Atlantic for a follow-up album in 1984. The label wanted them to record the song "Shaving Cream" for their next single, which the band did not favor; they recorded the song, but with added lyrics critical of the label, and were soon dropped.

Jump 'N the Saddle sticks it to the man! I didn't know they were so punk rock!
