Subject: Making Me Crazy

Written By: Di on 07/25/04 at 8:39 am

Okay for all you 70's buffs, I have a question that's been making me crazy. I am going to see if I can explain it so that you'll all be able to help me out.   There is theme music, it was during a show, most likely some sort of variety show...that goes a little something like this......

ma na ma na ---dee dee   dee--dee    dee dee
ma na ma na ---dee dee   dee--dee    dee dee

da dee dee     da dee dee     da dee dee   da dee dee


Everyone I ask says it's from the Dating Game, but I really don't believe that it is, since I've been able to listen to some dating game music.    My memory keeps taking me to some sort of variety/comedy show  with this music playing during a skit (mime like)   


Please make this tune go away!!    :o  Before my family puts me in an asylum.   Thanks!

It sounds like 'Mah Na Mah Na' is going through your head, Di...

It was used (in a speeded-up version) on 'The Benny Hill Show' (not variety, but certainly comedy) mostly throughout the seventies, although it also gained popularity when used on 'The Muppet Show'...

...but (whisper), it actually originated from a Swedish porn movie...!!

That's the one I was thinking of too, Paul.

           Thank you, thank you!  ;D That's exactly it!  I must remember it from the Muppet Show! Can you all tell how happy I am to finally get that tune out of my head!  I am so thankful I found this board.
            See, I wasn't too far off. I never really got into Benny Hill. Mum was Canadian and thought it was too racy for us to watch!  Actually, my parents told us the TV was broken until I was 16!  Never doubted them. 
             Thanks again, and I apologize to anyone who now has that tune STUCK in THEIR head!
