Yo La Tengo - "The Simpsons" end credits - 1 min.

Broadcast on 11/15/98


Yo La Tengo's trippy version of the Simpsons theme, played during the end credits to a psychedelic backdrop (see Billboard story). This 47-second version was broadcast in its entirety only once that I'm aware of; it was cut substantially for the rerun.

From my own first-generation videotape; the master was lost (I recorded the episode on my "temporary" tape and I copied this bit onto another tape). A bit of hiss but nice stereo sound.

I have another version of this that I received as filler on the 9/5/98 Bumbershoot Festival disc; it has better fidelity (no tape hiss) but is sadly missing the first 7 seconds.
