When I was in high school, I was in Senior Band. I played bass clarinet, and then later the oboe and the bassoon (note to current high school students: playing the oboe does not make you cool).
Last night’s episode of Entertainment Tonight “Where are they now?” on Knots Landing made me remember some of the songs on our set list, which was heavy on television theme songs, including the themes to:
- Mork and Mindy (good bass clarinet part)
- Knots Landing
- Fantasy Island
- The Love Boat
- The Rockford Files
We also played Africa by Toto, which had a great oboe part (which is very rare).
Boy do I ever feel old.
