What the HELL was I listening to!?!?!?

Even if they were giving them CD's out for FREE with any $20 purchase, I'd be back asking for a refund!!!

I could come out with better sounding versions on my old Commodore 64!

My parents picked up a copy at the local Eckerd as a surprise...I thanked them for their generosity, but explained that I already had the REAL versions of these themes, which was apparently for the better. :-)

If nothing else, I'd say it's a keeper in the sense that Milli Vanilli's CD is a keeper. :)

That stuff sounds like something that a 10 year old who had only foggy memories of GSN reruns, with a synth board, would shit out in five seconds...I mean, I've heard belched versions of the Family Feud theme that sounded closer to the real thing...

Hey...I liked Milli Vanilli - who cares if they didn't actually sing?  Besides, my copy's on vinyl!!

I have the version of that CD that GSN and that music co. released with the "Plink Plank Plunk" theme from IGAS.

Have had it for quite a long time.. since 2000 I think.

Since I'm part of the evil music empire, I went into our archive and listened to the whole darn thing.  It's MIDI-riffic!  Actually, the LMAD theme isn't that bad, since you're only trying to duplicate four instruments.  The rest are pretty terrible.  Almost makes me wonder if they have some sort of software that can make a MIDI out of a WAV file, or at least get the notes down and have someone assign the instruments.

However, this outfit has made over 50 such albums, including such gems as:
DJ's Choice: I Want to Be a Sports Star and DJ's Choice: Gagnsters Greatest Hits.  These are pretty much MIDIs with some lounge singer providing the lyrics.

If you really want to punish yourself:
They have a website!

That's an understatement on the level of saying that an electric sander shoved up your ass would be slightly painful...

I assure you, it wasn't a comment against yourself...I was simply saying that the statement that none of the recreations were as good as the real tunes was an understatement, to say the least.
