    Great history, guys!

    In terms of the theme song, it wasn’t just the opening riff that was at issue. The theme and the earlier-released Huey Lewis song are virtually identical. Someone has, predictably, mashed them together:

    At the time (I was university-age, then), everyone knew Parker had ripped off Lewis. The two settled out of court– and then Ray Parker, Jr. re-sued Lewis after Lewis breached the confidentiality terms of the settlement, years later.

    Another musical note: among the unexpected cameos, 80s teen pop icon Debbie Gibson appears in the Tavern on the Green.

  2. The quick, tiny comment on He-Man’s movie makes me want to hear one of these podcast with that as its subject.

  3. Another thought: I don’t have nearly enough time to play a full video game anymore, but I wanted to see “Ghostbusters 3”, as presented through the game. Anyone have a good suggestion for how to do that? Is there a YouTube play-through that would let me get the story, or a book/comic adaptation or anything?
