Laverne & Shirley Sing

More fake music from TV land... it's Laverne and Shirley!

It's bad enough that people in the 70s couldn't distinguish between actors and musicians (witness records by the likes of Telly Savalas, Sebastian Cabot, Leonard Nimoy and countless others). Apparently, though, they couldn't tell the difference between real people and fictional characters either. Check out this record of blase quasi-50's tunes by Laverne and Shirley. It's actually actors Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams who sing here, but they stay completely in character, performing as if Laverne and Shirley were real people with their own singing careers.

I hate to be the one to break the news, but Laverne and Shirley aren't real. The songs they sing aren't real. The steps they're sitting on in this picture are inside a Hollywood sound stage, not in downtown Milwaukee. Even their cute ice pops are most likely made out of plastic to avoid dripping on their fake sweaters. Take my advice, throw out your television and buy more records. It's the only path to true elightenment.

Songs:

Sixteen Reasons (MP3) Wherein the girls enumerate the "Sixteen reasons why I love you". I bet they're talking about the Fonz.
More from our Yearbook (MP3) All the names they mention in this song are people who assisted in the production of the album. If you ask me, that's blurring the line between truth and fiction a little too much.

I can't feel my face....I can't feel my face! Can someone explain to me why this music was ever placed on vinyl? Bathroom tissue would have been more appropriate...and far less durable. I'm off to boil my shorts...and eat them!! (08-08-2002)

laverne and shirley!!! rock cindy williams is my idol,i love it i watch it all the time.i never heard the album though. and for you people that think laverne and shirley suck! you suck!!!!!!!!!!!! (03-17-2002)

Sir Droopy Drawers (eatme@home.com) says:
Ummmm.....Laverne seems to really enjoy sucking that ice pop....of course assuming it is an ice pop. Anyway, I always wondered why these two weren't lesbians. I mean, they sing right? and Lesbians sing, so I think these two would make the perfect lesbians. Hey they have "sixteen reasons" to be lesbians. Ummm, do they play tennis too? Now if you all excuse me, my asylum awaits for me. (03-16-2002)

Lyndsay says:
They sound so cute!
Laverne and shirley are my favorite people. (03-11-2002)

Helen Murphy says:
As far Cindy Williams is concerned, she needs to spend a few nights with our military in the Philippines or Kabul since she is opposed to our men and women getting a pay raise. (01-30-2002)
