Sorry to bother you like this, but its been bugging me. I need to know the name and the band who created that "hello" song. It's used in the simpsons when Homer first meet's marge, and is quite a famous song, i'm sorry i can't be more helpful, but does anyone know the name of that song?

Are you talkin' "Hello, Goodbye" by the Beatles? Can't think of any other "hello" song, although I don't watch the Simpsons. Lyrics below.


Hello Goodbye

You say "Yes", I say "No".
You say "Stop" and I say "Go, go, go".
Oh no.
You say "Goodbye" and I say "Hello, hello, hello".
I don't know why you say "Goodbye", I say "Hello, hello, hello".
I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello.
I say "High", you say "Low".
You say "Why?" And I say "I don't know".
Oh no.
You say "Goodbye" and I say "Hello, hello, hello".
I don't know why you say "Goodbye", I say "Hello, hello, hello".

i was always under the impression that song played was "Close To You" by the Carpenters. The most famous lines being

Why do birds suddenly appear,
Everytime you are near
Just like me
They long to be
Close to you

I recheck that on the simp dvds i just got though

Ok Aus, you really got me racking my brain now. Could it be "Hello" by Lionel Richie? Chorus below....


Hello, is it me you're looking for?
'Cause I wonder where you are
And I wonder what you do
Are you somewhere feeling lonely or is someone loving you?
Tell me how to win your heart
For I haven't got a clue
But let me start by saying ... I love you

I have not had the dubiouos pleasure of sitting through an episode of the Simpsons so I have not heard the tune however it could be "Hello It's Me" by Todd Rungren. That song has to be at least 25 years old and it is a classic.

Great, now I'm going to be archived forever on the Internet as the guy who can roll out Lionel Richie on cue. And you guys wonder why I'm posting to tennis boards on Saturday night. ouch.


Glad this thread is ending...heh

Lionel Richie and Jimmy Connors are very close friends. Jimbo allegedly even sung back-up vocals on at least one recorded song.

How's that for the planet's oddest friendship?

(Every subject can be drawn into tennis...)

So, who's the better singer - William Shatner or Jimmy Connors?

I think the feeling in Shatner's voice draws more of an emotional response than does Jimbo's.

Many-a person has been brought to tears by Bill's 'Mr. Tambourine Man'...

"Hello Again" by Ric Ocasek and the Cars circa 1980s?

Hello Hello - Cat Empire

Walking down the street
with some evil in my eye
and some thoughts in my head
that were making me feel high
on my head was a hoodi
in my ears was some bass
was walking by my dog
when I saw that sexy face
come towards me
with a little cheeky smile
if she was a phone
I'd pick her up and dial
the fire brigade
or zero zero zero
she stopped me in my tracks
and I said ‘mmm hello hello...’

I was sleeping in the sand
with some dreams in my head
that were causing an extension
to the towel and my bed
and the waves were rolling
like the curves on those legs
of a sweet beach bella
with that centrefold spread
in the midst of the slumber
I heard some footsteps creeping
and I woke to discover
the woman I'd been dreaming
she knelt down beside
said 'can I share your pillow?'
I rolled over and I said
‘well hello hello...’
Some like money making
some like cars
and some like the houses
with the rooftop spas
and some like to gossip
about some rich sugar daddies
but me and my friends
we like the golden brown honeys
and some like watching people
living on TV
that's a little strange
if you're asking me
cos I like to eat and laugh
and **** and play down low
these are the things I know
well hello hello...

Welcome to this night
welcome to this song
welcome to these rhymes
that be going on and on
welcome to the empire
and the funky empire tunes
but most of all welcome
to the bellas in this room...
well hello hello
