Guy getting shot at arcade story ok now that i scared everyone off by making em think i was retelling this story again... I can start on the really story which is even dumber, well i havent come up with it yet, but id bet it was dumber. Everyone should check out www.bucknergarcia.com its pretty funny. Buckner and Garcia are the duo that made the PacMan Fever LP. They talk about some later songs like 'i love you E.T' (about the olien) and about a song about Pogs. You can download a song by them about Mr T as well. Steve Mar is going to buy me their 2 CDs using his dot com power. This week ive been spending all my time at work downloading MAMEs. Mame is Multi Arcade machine Emulator or something like that. Basically its a program that will play arcade game ROMs. You can download the ROM to about any game from before 1993-4 and play it on you home computer. Well most of you cant, but i can. you see it takes a super-hero-evil-genius to be able to get this mad-machine-game to work. Luckily When i was ajusting my 20 inch satalite dish during a rain storm, I was stuck by lightning and put out of my misery. Only then was i not dead and it turned out the lightning bolt that stuck me had gone through a cargo plane overhead that was caring a shippment of Raver brand SmartDrinks (their motto "SmartDrinks: will make up for the fact that you were dumb enough to rave") and it hit me. Now i be super smart and all and i love the Mortal Kombat Rave theme. And i can also play video games, which was the point to this whole story. and now something you all been waiting for: STARS ON 45 "Medley..." - Stars On 45 Written by Anthony Vita Stars on 45 was a group of studio vocalists and musicians assembled by producer Jaap Eggermont in Holland to record a medley of songs inspired by a bootleg single. You see, in Holland there was a 12'' bootleg single that was being sold under the counter for what would be $10 American dollars. The bootleg was a medley of popular songs by the original artists edited together so that it could be played in discos. The idea to produce a smiliar, yet legal, medley of songs was proposed to Jaap Eggermont, a former drummer for the Dutch pop group Golden Earring. Jaap immediately got to work and selected two songs from the bootleg, like "Sugar Sugar" and "Venus"...then he added numerous Beatles tunes to make the Fab Four the focus of the recording. He then managed to get lead singers from various Dutch acts to record the songs...and sing them like the Beatles. Each tune was recorded separately and edited later into what would become a single consisting of at least 20 edits. The song was originally intended to be an 11 and a half minute, 12" single release. The producers couldn't even think of releasing it as a standard 3 minute single. Well, in order to get on the radio, the song was edited down to some three and half minutes and wound up topping the Dutch chart. Before too long the tune spread to other countries, including the United States. When it came here, however, clearance problems led to a couple of songs being deleted from the U.S. single version....and it also led to an identity crisis for the title of the song. In Europe it was known as "Stars On 45". For the American release, publishers insisted the titles of all the songs be included in the title. The result was a 41 word title that became the longest title for any number 1 song...let alone any song to ever enter the charts. This success of this song sparked more medleys which contained songs by The Beach Boys, Stevie Wonder and even Abba.
