“Terrific”, is a song by singer-songwriter Drake Bell, his first and only single from his extended play, A Reminder.[1] It was the first song he had released since 2008, and the first not to be co-written with either Michael Corcoran or C.J. Abraham.[2] Though the song did not chart in the U.S., it debuted at number 1 on Mexico’s charts.[3] A music video was released on YouTube.[4]

Superhero Movie

Superhero Movie is a 2008 American comedy spoof film written and directed by Craig Mazin, produced by David Zucker and Robert K. Weiss, and starring Drake Bell, Sara Paxton, Christopher McDonald, and Leslie Nielsen. It was originally titled Superhero! as a nod to one of David and Jerry Zucker’s previous film, Airplane!, in which Nielsen also starred.

Superhero Movie is a spoof of the superhero film genre, mainly the first Spider-Man, as well as other modern-day Marvel Comics film adaptations. The film follows in the footsteps of the Scary Movie series of comedies, with which the film’s poster shares a resemblance. It was also inspired by, and contains homages to, some of Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker’s earlier spoof films such as Airplane! and The Naked Gun.

Production began on September 17, 2007, in New York. It was released on March 28, 2008 in the United States, and the UK release was June 6, 2008, and received $9,000,000 on its opening weekend and was #3 at the box office.

Sunny Afternoon

“Sunny Afternoon” is a song by The Kinks, written by chief songwriter Ray Davies.[2] The track later featured on the Face to Face album as well as being the title track for their 1967 compilation album. Like its contemporary “Taxman” by The Beatles, the song references the high levels of progressive tax taken by the British Labour government of Harold Wilson.[3][4] Its strong music hall flavour and lyrical focus was part of a stylistic departure for the band (begun with 1965’s “A Well Respected Man”), which had risen to fame in 1964–65 with a series of hard-driving, power-chord rock hits.[1]

It has been claimed that it was originally written to be sung by a Sunday school choir; however, historians dispute this, stating that it was much too “racy” (and secular) to be sung by a children’s church choir in the days it was written.[3] Although not originally intended on having any connection to Christmas, it later became associated with Christmas music and the season in general.

California Man (song)

“California Man” is a song by The Move.

Released in 1972 as a single with “Do Ya” and “Ella James” as a double B-side, this was The Move’s last official single release. The Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), originally conceived as a side-project to The Move, issued its first single, “10538 Overture”, a month after this track. A pastiche of Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard and Larry Williams, the composition is recorded in a high energy rock ‘n’ roll style, with lead vocals by both Jeff Lynne and Roy Wood, then jointly leaders of both ELO and The Move. California Man reached number 7 on the UK Singles Chart in May 1972.

In the US the single was issued on the United Artists record label. It was flipped after release, when Jeff Lynne’s “Do Ya” B-side proved more popular. It became The Move’s only US charting single, peaking at number 93 on the Billboard Hot 100[1] in November 1972. Only Wood, Lynne and drummer Bev Bevan appear on the recording. The picture sleeve has an older picture of The Move, including bassist Rick Price, who was no longer a member of the group by then. The Move’s version of the song never originally appeared on one of their studio albums, however it does appear as a bonus track on the reissue of Message from the Country.
