Dickie Goodman ~ Mr Jaws 1975 Comedy Parody
- Published on Jul 12, 2018
I don't think there is enough humor these days, maybe this will get a smile? The fun thing about radio in the 70's was never knowing the next thing the DJ was going to play. Dickie Goodman was a comedian who started "sampling" back in 1956 by using clips from a variety of then currently popular songs and hit big with "The Flying Saucer (Parts 1 & 2)". Here, Goodman seized the opportunity to spoof Jaws and make you laugh by utilizing that technique. I remembered how much I liked novelty tunes and my mind took me back to 1975. John Williams sure got it right when he composed the music for the soundtrack, that ominously dreading string section that accelerates in tempo really catches my attention. Nowadays most will probably guffaw at this one, but back in da day it was pretty funny to this 15 year old.
