    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.

    -Craig

    Hello Goodbye
    Beatles

    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....

    Craig


    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.

    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 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
