This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation.
When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

Everyone's entitled to an opinion.


So far, the voting for favorite theme songs for 60s sitcoms is very, very close. Not surprisingly, with as many good choices as there are, there is no clear cut leader. Get Smart and The Addams Family are the leaders in the no lyrics and lyrics division, respectively, but there are plenty of songs within a vote or two of the lead.

Yay, freedom of choice!

But here's the thing. The theme for The Patty Duke Show has one vote. And it's my vote.

Click on the link and listen to the lyrics. "One pair of matching bookends, different as night and day." How can you not love that line?

Given that I know some of my regular readers are just as immature as I am, I thought there would be some love for "A hot dog makes her lose control". But so far, I, like the cheese, stand alone expressing my love for The Patty Duke Show theme song.

It costs you nothing but a second of your time! You can make an old man happy! Or, a middle aged man happy. Whatever.

It's a free country, at least until Obama and his socialist puppet masters open up the re-education camps. You can do what you want. But nobody else loves this song? I find it hard to believe.

It was a tough vote, Matty Boy, but I just had to go with those hilarious lyrics from Addams Family. "Neat... Sweet... Petite." Plus Patty Duke was a little before my time, so I don't have the attachment to it that you do. Sorry!

There's nothing wrong with the Addams Family theme. I voted for it, too. You can vote for more than one.

I can understand that it might be an age difference thing. When I put up the 1970s favorites, there's stuff I'm going to put on the list that I never watched very much, but are very popular with people younger than I am.

I had the theme to the Patty Duke show going through my head for about three weeks last month. I'll get you for this!

If it makes you happy...Patty Duke it is.
