You'll Get a Bang Out of This

Okay, I'll admit that this one is pretty much mostly for me and my lovely wife Christine. Our favorite new sitcom of this season -- and, frankly, of the last several seasons -- is the wonderfully written and acted Big Bang Theory, which airs Monday nights on CBS. Christine has an interesting post about this week's episode over at her charming blog, which can be accessed by clicking on it over at the right.

But one of our favorite parts of the show is the incredible theme song sung at the top of each episode by the rock group Barenaked Ladies. We happily sing along and then find the song stuck in our heads for the rest of the week. Now it's my turn to stick the song in your heads, gentle readers.

Tag! You're it!

Way cool. I had no idea there was more to it than what's on the show. Did the song and video come first?

It's what wakes me up in the morning ( I have it as my alarm sound).

Big Bang Theory is a great show and I have you and Christine to thank for recommending it. This last Monday, I was watching the episode, which I'd recorded, later in the evening. I was laughing so loudly at the "into the future" time machine sequence (what good buddies to enhance Leonard's experience like that) that I woke my son up and he came sleepy-eyed into the living room. A quick rewind had us both sharing a belly laugh.

The Barenaked Ladies are a fun group. They always have singalong tunes. We saw them a couple years ago and they stopped the show because there were 4 people in the front row not standing and dancing like the rest of us...'we're not singing anymore until these four people get up from their seats'. If you don't know them well, check out 'If I had a Million Dollars' - there biggest hit - at least here in Canada. cheers.
