Today’s Musical Interlude

National Lampoon’s Animal House, now regarded as a comedy classic, boasted a soundtrack of lovely late ’50s-early ’60s tunes. But the closing theme was an original song by Stephen Bishop, hearkening back to the days of sock hops, Sadie Hawkins dances, and cake walks. A little trivia here: Bishop was the cop in the shopping mall scene of The Blues Brothers who, upside down, says, “They broke my watch.”

Straight from the 33 1/3 rpm album, replete with record scratches, here’s the closing theme that no one remembers.  But it’s still lovely.

And I’m still mad at Belushi 32 years later.  Dumb ass.
