Laverne & Shirley Sing

More fake music from TV land... it's Laverne and Shirley!

It's bad enough that people in the 70s couldn't distinguish between actors and musicians (witness records by the likes of Telly Savalas, Sebastian Cabot, Leonard Nimoy and countless others). Apparently, though, they couldn't tell the difference between real people and fictional characters either. Check out this record of blase quasi-50's tunes by Laverne and Shirley. It's actually actors Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams who sing here, but they stay completely in character, performing as if Laverne and Shirley were real people with their own singing careers.

I hate to be the one to break the news, but Laverne and Shirley aren't real. The songs they sing aren't real. The steps they're sitting on in this picture are inside a Hollywood sound stage, not in downtown Milwaukee. Even their cute ice pops are most likely made out of plastic to avoid dripping on their fake sweaters. Take my advice, throw out your television and buy more records. It's the only path to true elightenment.

Songs:

Sixteen Reasons (MP3) Wherein the girls enumerate the "Sixteen reasons why I love you". I bet they're talking about the Fonz.
More from our Yearbook (MP3) All the names they mention in this song are people who assisted in the production of the album. If you ask me, that's blurring the line between truth and fiction a little too much.

Shut up Lone Beatnick! (08-06-2001)

The Lone Beatnik (cujoe76@yahoo.com) says:
I would rather be beaten swiftly and severely about the head and neck with a cane. Look at how Laverne and Shirley are sucking those popsickles. I bet that isn't the only thing they like to suck. Penny Marshall, now confirmed lover of Rosie O'Donnel, is performing her one-woman show THE OLD CRUSTY VAGINA MONOLOGUES in K-mart stores around the country. As an added incentive, she hands out copies of this record for free. (06-15-2001)

What about the partner album, "Lenny and the Squiggtones" by co-stars Michael McKeon ("I'm Lenny...") and David L. Landers (...and I'm the Squiggtone!")? Some of the tracks have live sound suggesting that this beast actually went on tour. (02-21-2000)

Okay, now that the smarmy little official review is done, it's my turn. I just found this little gem in a used record store and I'm proud to add it to my record collection. I've always loved L & S and even got my email addy from an episode. Can anyone guess which one? (11-18-1999)

Noble Stack says:
Too bad the Lenny & The Squigtones album ain't here - especially "Creature Without A Head". Listened to now, that album does sound like a dry run for Spinal Tap (only in a different decade). Especially check the band credits for that album... (10-30-1999)

Richard James (mike@searchlight.com) says:
I'd like you to know while Laverne & Shirley will sing about Rosie O'Donnell because she is nice for the daytime talk show host who wanted to feel about her show so it really does the daytime TV. I do hope and pray that Rosie was happy about the fan, and I just believe that something for us to think what they enjoyed the hour long reunion show "Surprise Penny! You're It!" during in May 6, 1999 on "The Rosie O'Donnell Show" I think you had a great time with us, and I believe that you did the best show I've ever do. Thank you and God bless you all. Sincerely, Richard James 58141 Barrow Street Plaquemine, Louisiana 70764 (10-21-1999)

Hayley says:
Although I'm only thirteen I have seen nearly every episode of Laverne and Shirley, and this is the best show ever. Great comedy, lovable characters, what more could you want out of a television series? Penny Marshall is my idol, I want to star in a sitcom when I grow up. I too agree that Laverne and Shirley is the best damn television show on eath. (10-13-1999)

Molly says:
Thank you!!! Sixteen Reasons was a bunch of fun to play! xox (10-09-1999)
